    Depends entirely on you what kind of impression you want to leave for interviewers about yourself and your attitude towards this interview.

    Well you will stand out then, which is exactly what you want in an interview.

    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!

    If you're questioning whether it's appropriate, it's most likely not....

    Only if it's a formal interview. For informal ones, most just wear smart casual clothing.

    So even more of a reason to stand out. There will be hundreds of applicants.

    Every "informal" interview I have had were pretty formal. As a rule of thumb it stands pretty solid.

    I could also argue that all my informal interview no-one wore a suit.

    4, and some of my friends had the same interview at a different days. This was only at one interview, the others I asked people what they worn beforehand.

    It generally depends on the place, but its much safer to wear a suit if you have no clue.

    Yeah but i also questioned weather a suit was, so i have no idea what to wear as i have nothing. I only have a suit because of my school, the normal for me is just super casual.
