uh... I feel stupid- What to wear to an interview?

I have an interview tomorrow at Bath & Body works. FT position, possibility of a management position after a few months.
I haven't worked in 4 years now. (::slaps forehead::)
What do I wear? I don't want to be totally overdressed for an interview,but I definitely don't want to be under dressed...

  • deodorant..never let 'em see ya sweat!!! (sorry, this was my first thought!)

    you can't go wrong with solid-color slacks, khaki/black, and a white button-down..maybe throw on a couple strands of beaded necklaces or chains for a bit of glamour..nice shoes, not date-night shoes. fix your hair, clean loud perfume. look nice, approachable, and clean. B&BW isn't really an in-your-face style store.
    you've shopped there, right? dress like they do, if you can remember.

  • nice dress pants or skirt and a nice top. I wouldn't wear a suit or anything. Basically just what the employees wear to work.

  • I would choose something very dressy but skip the jacket. A nice "career top" (I think that's what they call them in stores!) and dress pants for sure. Nice shoes - they don't have to be heels, but definitely dressy.

  • hahaha! I think dullscissors summed it up perfectly!

    Keep it simple. Dress according to the store. :)

  • Dress for the job you want. If there's a chance for a position in management you should dress the part. As a former hiring manager I guarantee it's always better to be over-dressed than under-dressed; jacket, slacks and heels would be appropriate.

  • Wear something modest, a little dressy but not too dressy. If you go into the store often, try to remember what the employees wore.
