I've decided to wear a smart trouser suit- even with all the comments about not wearing suits, I know I'll feel more confident and look as if I've made the effort. Power dressing, I say!
I'm going smart casual - grey trousers, smart jumper (to be warm) and smart shoes.
Last year I dressed up more and was freezing which probably didn't help my performance.
Well I think it all dates back to when Oxbridge uni's didnt want women in, n at that time, women were neva seen in trousers; so i think it has just continued a tradition from then, n now not enuf people will break the tradition and go in trousers, there are however, many girls that do, it is just not as many as those who wear trousers! xxxx
i was so grateful 2 see ur post since i have my cambridge interview on thursday as well and i wasnt sure what to wear. i think i'm going with black trousers and a black jumper with a nice bright scarf and some leather boots....lol, if 4 sum reason ur interested. tbh it would b better that we look confortable and practical....cos skirts r not practical in this weather! where r u applying.what subject?
That sounds like a good dress plan! hehe! I think i would definately go for the trousers as well, as it is much much too cold for skirts!! Sod the sexist tutors! I'm apply to Durham, Exeter, LSE, Reading, Southampton & Warwick, for Accounting and Finance. Where else are you applying and for what course?
I got told by my (all girls, admittidly) school to wear skirts to all interviews, because it's traditional, and that's what interviewers like. However, I wore black trousers, boots, a shirt and a smart jumper to mine, with my black smart coat. Seemed to work!
oh no this has brought a new worry now!
Chill! Wearing your favourite Glastonbury mud-wrestling outfit might not be a great idea, but apart from that, just be smart! Smart trouserts are just as good as a skirt, not to mention the fact that Cambridge is freeeeeeezing now, so you'll feel a lot warmer! Put your outfit together the night before though, or before you leave, if you're staying the night - that'll be one load off your mind.
I wore a suit because it was natural - we did at school for 6th form anyway, but other people didn't dress so formally and still got in!
black and white would be a good match .It looks smart
wut about the hairdo?
