Last week we highlighted the color you should wear on a first date to make a killer first impression. Up this week? The best hue to wear on your next job interview. As Glamour pointed out, a British T-shirt company surveyed 1000 customers to learn their thoughts about people in particular colors—specifically, what works best for an interview. The result? Just like for a date, black was called “serious and reliable” and perceived as the most confident color (according to 48% of women and 64% of men). So the next time you walk into a meeting for your dream job, try a black suit or black top-and-skirt set to show your interviewer who’s boss.
