What to Wear to an Interview When It's Freezing Outside

When temperatures dip below 40°F, the last thing you want to do is go outside. However, duty calls, and sometimes that duty is making your next professional move, i.e., going to an interview.

Deciding what to wear to an interview is always tricky business, even (perhaps more so) in a creative field that allows more casual work outfits, but when you also have to think about not losing any limbs due to the cold, things can get even more complicated. Don't fret, though, and definitely don't feel like you have to play it safe with an all-black outfit. An in-person interview is the one chance you get to show off your potential future boss who you are and how you present yourself to the world.

So, instead of showing an outfit that might be easily forgotten, opt for one that not only shows your personality but that will make a lasting impression. Now, are you ready to land that job? Ahead, find 15 casual winter interview outfits that are both professional and weather-appropriate.
