When dressing smartly for an interview, it is important that women wear closed toes and hosiery, an expert has commented.
Image consultant Kristen Kaleal made her recommendations to online resource the News Herald, suggesting that a suit in charcoal or navy is often the most appropriate look a female candidate can go for.
She suggested that a skirt suit is best for an interview, although a trouser suit is suitable if it makes the candidate feel more relaxed.
A person's appearance is their "visual resume", Ms Kaleal continued.
She added: "A lot of times we are interviewing against people with the same background ... The difference sometimes is that one candidate looks a little more polished."
However, women should not feel that they have more to be concerned about than their male counterparts.

of their suits.
