2  Investigate your prospective employer! You don’t want to under dress or overdress and seem like you didn’t do your research.  If you’re not sure when headed to an interview, air on the side of caution and dress more conservatively.  Skirts are technically considered MORE conservative for women than pants. Many think the opposite.  If you’re a woman in a mostly man’s environment, dressing more conservatively is probably in your favor. You don’t want your clothes to outshine your work.  Some good websites for more tips:  (books) 

3  The basic suit  A good blouse, preferably in a solid color  A leather portfolio that can hold the necessities: notepad, pen, resumes and business cards  Comfortable close-toed heels  Tote bag

4  Sleeve and shoulder should meet at not quite a 90 angle.  Sleeve, if full-length, should fall to the highest knuckle of your thumb.  You should be able to move freely without being uncomfortable.  Pants should just reach the floor or come a little above, depending on personal preference.  Button-front blouses should not pull at the arms or gap at the chest. No cleavage!  Skirts should reach the knee or come 1-2 inches above.

5  Some good tailors in Athens:  Alterations Express (Georgia Square Mall)  Jos. A. Banks (Beechwood)  Davis Alterations (Chase St.)
