Marvelous Girl Has Moved!

dress for less suit

Ryan Kohnen, a 29-year-old entrepreneurial phenom and author of the book Young Professional’s Guide to Success,  provided Marvelous Girl with the top 5 ways to dress for an interview for less than $100 below:

1)      Go monochromatic. Dressing in one color is always polished and can make up for the fact that your suit isn’t Armani.
2)      Develop a relationship with a tailor.  Even a $20 pair of Gap dress pants are interview-worthy if they fit right.
3)      Discount retailers and off-season sales are your friends.  Last season’s perfectly fashionable castoffs can be yours for often one quarter of the price.
4)      Separates are an option, especially in neutral colors.  A navy cardigan can replace a navy jacket-especially when paired with a navy pencil skirt.
5)      Limit jewelry.  It can tend towards expensive or showy, and neither will do you any favors while you’re looking for work.

In Kohnen’s latest book he pulls together the advice of over 70 CEOs, top executives, and community leaders- people like Cindi Bigelow, President of Bigelow Tea Company; Hala Moddelmog, CEO of Susan G. Komen For The Cure; Essie L. Calhoun, Chief Diversity Officer of Eastman Kodak Company; and Ellen J. Kullman, CEO of DuPontÑand to not only help readers find jobs, but how to do it.
