Nice camel toe....

Alittle tight, but appropriate if it is in sales.

It's appropiate. The way she is posing and the style of shirt under the blazer isn't, though. LOL

Agreed.

The jacket is just fine, (actually, I like the jacket), but the pants are too tight. Considering most people don't look like this woman, it's going to look even worse in real life.

Also, button up, it's a job interview, not a photo shoot.

Edit: I just realized you are from Miami. I rescind what I said. Things are different in Miami. For the REST of the country, I stand by what I say. Not Miami.

Thanks.I was just talking about the suit. Not the accessories or the shirt, or the hair. I'm not "from" Miami, but I was in miami for a while. We just temporarily moved back to the Louisiana office now because Miami was disappointing. My husband and I both work for the same company and his position requires him to go back and forth a lot. My position is in IT and can be done from any location. We're hoping to move to St. Petersburg where we actually enjoyed ourselves.

I would say no -- but it depends a lot on the job. If the job requires a lot of sexiness, maybe dealing with male customers, then yes, looking hot in plunging necklines and skin tight pants will do the trick.

If the job isn't about being sexy then don't dress sexy to the interview. In fact it's a good idea to do some research and find out what those who are successful in the business are wearing and just make sure you dress at least as well, but it doesn't hurt to show up looking a little more professional but not a lot more. And if those successful in that business aren't dressing like sex-kittens then it would be a mistake to show up dressed like one.

Too tight and the blouse is too revealing. I like the color (grey), but the jacket should be a bit longer and loser fitting as well as the slacks.

In nearly all office positions, this woman's suit needs to be a bit more "conservative" and less revealing.

No, this is not appropriate for a job interview. The pants are too tight and the blouse is too low cut. It's too sexy for an interview.

I don't see any cleavage. I think the suit is fine. I do agree with some of the other posters who said it was cut a little too snug causing the wrinkling when the jacket is buttoned and across the front of the pants. Charcoal gray and navy blue are perfect colors.

There's nothing wrong with the pantsuit. But I would go more conservative for a job interview in Louisiana. A step more 'boring'. Unless the job is in fashion or entertainment.

A good general rule is to go to the place of business at quitting time and look at the way people leaving the company are dressed. You should dress one step more conservative for an interview.
