Professional interview dress code for females and males in India

The way we dress up has a huge impact on our confidence level. So it's important to dress up properly for an interview. If you are preparing for your placements, you already understand the importance of a proper dress code in the corporate world.

Formal dress code for women

Interview dress code for female and male in India
  • In India, women are often confused when it comes to dressing for an interview. The reason is that they could not decide whether to opt for western outfits or the traditional Indian formals. Since most of the companies allow both of them, you should choose the one you feel more comfortable in.
  • If you go for Indian formals, use plain cotton sarees or Salwar Kameez with plain dupatta. Avoid low-cut necklines. Prefer light pastel shades. Don’t use very colorful clothes.
  • When choosing western formals, use plain light-colored blouse with formal trouser or skirt of conservative length, up to the knee. Prefer dark shades for the trouser. In winters, a blazer or conservative suit can be used.
  • Avoid too much make-up and use simple jewelry.
  • Use low heels so that you feel comfortable.

Formal dress code for Men:

  • The shirt should be tucked-in, and shoes should be well polished.
  • Hair should be neat and clean.
  • Avoid jeans and T-shirts.

Also, take care of the following things:

  • Use comfortable cotton clothes.

All the best for your interview.
