So you've finally landed yourself that job interview, and despite having a full closet, you find yourself at a loss for what to wear. Thankfully, it's easier to narrow down the choices and pick what's office-appropriate when preparing for a meeting with the boss.

White also makes for a great canvas for accessories, which you might want to wear to make your look unique.

4. Break the mold with beige

If you've had enough of your go-to blacks and whites, try beige. Still a rather conservative choice, this earthy hue makes people think you're warm and dependable. Make a statement by combining different tones, such as dark brown trousers with a soft shell pink top, or go all-khaki with monochromatic pieces and a leather bag in camel.
