Guidelines for successful interview dress

For those of you who need a quick review of the basics,
Follow these guidelines for successful interview dress:

Men and Women
    * Conservative two-piece business suit (solid dark blue or grey is best)
    * Conservative long-sleeved shirt/blouse (white is best, pastel is next best)
    * Clean, polished conservative shoes
    * Well-groomed hairstyle
    * Clean, trimmed fingernails
    * Minimal cologne or perfume
    * Empty pockets--no bulges or tinkling coins
    * No gum, candy, or cigarettes
    * Light briefcase or portfolio case
    * No visible body piercing (nose rings, eyebrow rings, etc.) or tatoos

    * Necktie should be silk with a conservative pattern
    * Dark shoes (black lace-ups are best)
    * Dark socks (black is best)
    * Get a haircut; short hair always fares best in interviews
    * Fresh shave; mustaches are a possible negative, but if you must, make sure it is neat and trimmed
    * No beards (unless you are interviewing for a job as a lumberjack!)
    * No rings other than wedding ring or college ring
    * No earrings (if you normally wear one, take it out)

    * Wear a suit with a jacket and skirt or slacks; no dresses
    * Shoes with conservative heels
    * Conservative hosiery at or near skin color (and no runs!)
    * No purses, small or large; carry a briefcase instead
    * If you wear nail polish, use clear or a conservative color
    * Keep your makeup simple and natural (it should not be too noticeable)
    * No more than one ring on each hand
    * One set of earrings only
