Your first year out of uni can be a tricky one—navigating job interviews, working out how you want your career to pan out, and coming to grips with finishing your schooling (after what feels like a million years). What can often be forgotten, is planning your next style move after graduation. Uni is fun—it’s all about casual sneakers and comfy streetwear, but the workforce is a different place. In your first year out, it’s important to have an idea of what you want your interview and work style to be—obviously depending on your chosen career. It’s easy to go out and buy a matching suit and wear it to meet all prospective employers, but that lacks one major factor—personality.
We’ve whittled down the perfect post-uni wardrobe into seven key pieces you should own. You can add your own spin, with fabrics and prints, and mix and match them together to create on-trend, and elevated outfits.

A black blazer will be your wardrobe hero no matter what industry you choose to go into. Wear it to interviews with slim-line jeans and a white shirt (for creative) or with a midi skirt and slingbacks (for corporate).
It's important to show your personality when you're in the interviewing phase. Potential employers want to know if you're a good culture fit, as well as your ability to fulfill the role. A printed dress (that keeps you covered up in the right places), is an easy way to show your personality.
