Actor Justin Bartha said in a recent interview that his girlfriend Ashley Olsen has never given him any form of fashion tips in order to improve his appearance.
The “Hangover” star, who has been dating the fashionista-businesswoman-actress for two years, stressed that Olsen never imposed her knowledge in fashion to him because she’s not a “shallow” person.
The actor said that he’s aware of what his girlfriend does for a living but that does not mean that he’s also getting fashion tips from Olsen. He said that he still get to choose what he wants to wear.
The 31-year old actor said that even though he does not get any expert fashion tips, he personally dabbles his interest in this line of business because he wants to be conscious about his looks as well, considering that he’s also works in the showbusiness world.
The actor stars in an upcoming film with actress Catherine Zeta-Jones. He admitted that filming love scenes with the Oscar-winning actress was “awkward.”
A number of companies these days are now letting go of the usual perception of “office attire” – that is to wear formal business attire. Thus, starting with the job interview, this kind of dress code is no longer a requisite.
The global financial crisis has challenged unemployed or those who were recently laid off from their jobs to find other opportunities. Purchasing an expensive business attire is pretty much not a priority among these people. However, experts say that this is not a good excuse to be more presentable during an interview.
The basic advice they could give among jobseekers is to ask for the dress code. If you are called for an interview, ask the person (usually a personnel from the Human Resources) what’s the appropriate dress to wear. It would be disadvantageous to wear flashy or very expensive clothes during the interview, as it gives an impression that you don’t need the job that much.
Having a proper dress code doesn’t guarantee the job but neatness and manners do. It shows that you are respectful to the interviewer, which could be your future boss, and that you are serious about getting the job.
When you got invited to your first job interview at a prestigious organization, it’s always hard to choose what to wear. Since you haven’t seen any of your new colleagues, you can’t copy from them. Our advice is: dress smart. Wear a suit. You can never go wrong with that. And if you want to be more creative, keep the following in mind:
What not to wear at an interview
- Don’t wear flip-flips of sneakers
- Navy blue and black do NOT match
- Only borrow clothes form a friend if they fit perfectly
- Make sure your underwear is not visible, you don’t want your new boss to think your are seducing him with pieces of your lingerie showing
- For all the men out there: never wear shorts
- Make sure you skirt is not to short
- Don’t wear a low cut blouse
- And last but not least: if you wear a brand new outfit - make sure to remove all of the tags!
