Tie-Neck Blouse

This long-sleeve blouse features a deep red hue and tie-neck accent that'll help your outfit stand out without looking too flashy. If you really want to make a statement, pair it with white flare pants, or keep your style more traditional with black tapered slacks. You can never go wrong with gold accessories to complement a red blouse so you might as well add the Baublebar earrings we feature below to your cart, too. ($20; forever21.com)

Laptop Tote

When you walk into an interview it's important to be organized and prepared, which is why having a laptop tote is crucial. This classic canvas bag by Dagne Dover is available in six shades and has a slim design that allows you to carry the essentials without weighing you down. It offers ample storage for a planner, phone, keys, perfume, sunglasses, and can carry up to a 13-inch laptop—so basically everything you could possibly need. ($245; nordstrom.com)

Plaid Trousers

Sure, you could wear classic black slacks for your next interview, but we suggest spicing up your outfit with these plaid tapered pants. They have a comfortable, stretchy fit that makes the price tag totally worth it on its own, but the printed pattern takes them to a whole new level of fashion-forward. Pair them with any solid-color top and shoes and you'll be dressed to impress. ($229; anthropologie.com)

Closed-Toe Heels

According to Indeed, wearing open-toe shoes to an interview is a big no-no—even if the office attire is business casual. Don't take any chances and, instead, grab a pair of these closed-toe block heels. They're stylish, professional, and feature a neutral tone that'll pair well with almost anything you put on. After all, your shoes should be a finishing touch, not the fashion staple you center your outfit around. They are also available in black and cost less than $35, so there's practically zero risk in trying them out for yourself. ($33; lulus.com)

Five-Piece Earring Set

Having plenty of accessories to choose from is essential when you're dressing for something that could change your career. With this earring set from Baublebar you'll have five stylish options that will complete your outfit without being too distracting. If your blouse is already accented with a bow or flaunts a pretty pattern, we suggest the simple hoops with one diamond. To spice up an otherwise simple ensemble, go for the earrings lined with diamond studs. ($98; baublebar.com)
