by Starry   ·  2 years ago   ·  

While most of us have been spending the last six months working from home (has it honestly been six months??), measures have been eased and some of us have been called back into the office every few days as we continue to adapt to the new norm.

If you’re returning back to the office, you might be dreading saying goodbye to your work pyjamas and hello to work clothes. If the thought of returning to stiff blouses, or uncomfortable dresses irks you, don’t worry because we got your back. Shop your favourites today and pay later with Atome to split your bill into three easy parts today!

One-pieces are major time savers – they’re so easy to style and you’re ready almost instantly. Plus they’re so incredibly chic and sleek. Easily mix things up with a cute pair of shoes, or even add a belt in the middle to make it more form-flattering.

Dresses are honestly one of the go-tos outfits that can make you feel ready to head back into office. This lovely brick hued dress is so cosy and stylish that you can head out for meetings in confidence.

The muscle tee with shoulder pads is a 2020 trend that we love, that is a nod to the 80s. It’s laid back yet, fashionable – an upgrade from the classic plain white tee. You can tuck it in to practically everything and you’ll still look chic and edgy.

Dress for success – how to make a lasting first impression on your virtual interview

by Starry   ·  3 years ago   ·  

In this new norm, we’ve adapted to all things virtual. At the start of Circuit Breaker, we’ve moved all meetings with our friends, co-workers online as we began staying at home more. So it makes sense that interviews are done virtually – but what should you wear? Dressing for interviews are stressful, it’s important to make a good first impression, after all, this could be your future employer, but you want the style to remain true to who you are, and what you can bring to the table.

No matter what you don, it’s important to come across looking polished, professional and capable. But added that it’s done online, it’s another challenge. You no longer can win them over by a firm handshake, or smelling great – everything done online is all about playing to the eyes, letting your body language speak for itself – sit up straight, smile and ensure your background is neat (if not, always add in a virtual background!)

In terms of outfits? We believe that you should get fully dressed, that means no pyjama bottoms. Getting fully dressed like how you would for a normal interview helps you get into the role mentally. Not sure what to wear? We’ve got just the picks for you!

We love this comfortable button down dress from HollyHoque, you can’t go wrong with white or black for an interview. It’s easy enough to dress up for a more professional look, but it’s classy enough on its own.

Blazers are the answer to everything if we’re being honest. If the job you’re interviewing for has a more relaxed culture, you can stand out from the crowd with this houndstooth blazer, which features a pretty colour in an office friendly print! Layer it on top of neutrals for a casual professional look.

Get dressed for success in this midi dress from ACW! It comes in neutral shades so you can shine and have interviewer’s focus on you, while being simple and clean enough to come across professional.

Lastly, this modern and sleek midi-dress is a perfect to keep things classy and stylish. You can easily dress it up with a pair of simple earrings, and a blazer for a more corporate look.

We know how stressful interviews are, and virtual interviews are set to continue to be the new norm for the foreseeable future. No matter what you’re feeling, look and feel your best and put your best foot forward. Shop your favourites with Atome and pay later to split your bill into three interest-free parts!
