    Hi!

    I have a retail interview coming up in a few weeks, and I purchased a navy blue shirt a while back. However some people are telling me I should only wear a white shirt to a job interview.

    Any ideas?

    It's a silly question, I know but I may as well ask as I have the time.

    Thanks!

    dont think itll be a problem, I wore a royal blue shirt with a teddy brown fitted blazer, doc martens and jeans for my interview and I got the job. if its for a smart or important company though where they all wear suits then maybe but if its regular retail or a more relaxed/outdoorsy work place it should be fine
