Most Trending And Appropriate Med School Interview Attire
So did you recently get your call for your med school interview? Sounds exciting! Well, when you get to know that you have been selected for a medical school interview, your first thoughts are – “Woah!” You never expected this to be true. The second thought comes to you – “is this really true?” And then you rush to check your name on the list. And when finally this reality sinks in, you immediately think of how to style your med school interview attire! Well, that is a little tough.
Oftentimes, the candidates get confused and perplexed on how to dress for an interview, especially for a med school interview. They are not sure of what to wear and what not to wear. They end up making a weird choice by going with an inappropriate med school interview attire. This messes up their entire interview even if they are well prepared for it. As it is always said, “the first impression is the last impression”, and if they fail to create that first impression, they might fail to leave their charm on the interviewer.
How to avoid this blunder of fashion faux pas and how to dress correctly according to the interview is what you need to learn? Let us guide you.
What to wear for your med school interview?
When it comes to the med school interview attire, the thumb rule is that you’ve got to be dressed up all in formals. A clear understanding of what you are and what you want to wear and where you are going to appear for an interview will make things clear for you and you can choose your dress wisely.
Here are some basic tips that will guide you on selecting your interview attire:
1. Pant Suit
Pantsuits are a classic for any interview. You can never go wrong with a set of formal suits. This includes a pair of formal trousers/pants, crisply ironed white or nude coloured shirt and a coat/blazer over it. This is one such outfit that you can blindly trust. You may wear it numerous times and you can never fail any formal event. You can opt for various colours of pantsuit like black, navy blue, nude pink, beige and even white, especially because you are appearing for a med school interview. Style up your suit with wedges or block heels. Avoid wearing neon colours in clothing and your footwear.
2. Pencil skirt with a blouse
This is the second-best option for your med school interview attire. Again with this outfit, you will always rock your interview. A knee-length skirt teamed up with a shirt or button-down blouse looks best as formal attire. You can also opt for a basic plain coat for an all the way classic formal look. Style up your dress with a tote bag and flat bellies or heels if you prefer (avoid wearing blingy heels). Well, keep the clothing and footwear in neutral shades and you are good to go!
3. A traditional suit
A solid coloured cotton suit looks the best for all your interviews. Khadi cotton gives that perfect formal look. Opt for any plain cotton Kurti teamed up with a pair of salwar or palazzo of the same colour or maybe a contrasting colour in the same colour palette. You can also style your cotton suit with a stole and a tote bag. Avoid floral prints for your interview day. Neutral shades work the best for your med school interview.
4. Flared pants with a shirt
Now, if you are not willing to wear or spend thousands on buying peculiar formal wear (a pantsuit), then you can opt for plain flared pants with a nice satin top or solid shirt. The top can be styled in different ways or you can also opt for a plain or striped/ checked shirt instead of a satin shirt. If you are wearing any light coloured pants then always style your top in a little dark or contrasting shade. For instance, if your pants are nude or beige colour, then your top/short should be any dark colour like black, blue, brown, etc.
5. Knee-length dress
If you are in the mood to keep things light then this is the perfect time to take out your classic midi dress and style it in the most minimal way. You can easily style it with a backpack and flats while adorning a watch on your wrist. You can add a blazer to the outfit for a more smart and chic look to showcase confidence in front of the interviewer while it also saves you from the cold.
These are some basic styling tips for your formals, especially your med school interview attire. Do not spoil your dress by wearing denim or casuals with boots. That is a complete no-no! These styling tips are not only for med school attire but also can be used for any of your interviews or any other corporate meeting or event.
Now stay confident and let the world know that you are ready to be the next big thing!
