    Obviously a good one, but i don't want to be the odd one out wearing a suit because i would find that sooooo awkward!
    So, why not try a smart casual? That way nothing too formal or informal, the middle

    Always a suit. It doesn't have to look like you're going to court or a funeral though.

    Get the right suit and you won't look or feel stupid in it and the interviewers can see you're taking the interview seriously. I'm not sure there will be many or even any other people there who aren't in suits tbh

    Every "informal" interview I have had were pretty formal. As a rule of thumb it stands pretty solid.
    The company I did my work experience with last summer were telling me a bit about their interview process.

    They said that they automatically tended to prefer people who didn't wear a suit to the interview. It's not the right style for everyone

    What sort of company was it? All my interviews have been with law firms, banks and surveyors.

    I wore formal trousers, formal shoes, smart shirt, knitted vest and a tie to an interview for lab assistant in a hospital

    You could always go with formal trousers, formal or just regular shoes (no trainers or similar style), formal shirt and a nice cardigan/jumper or something like that. Just no gym/regular casual wear

    I even wore smart casual for warehouse interview and was only one that looked nice
