    Hi I have an interview for a teaching assistant role and I was wondering how skinny can my suit be, its more about the trousers. I have got two to try on, one is skinny but doesnt reveal my shape too much whereas the other has trousers which are as tightly fitted as a spray on skinny jean. However, they are both suits and not jeans so I can't see the problem with the tighter suit. I just feel it may go against me since I would be working in a high school.

    Please Help

    My opinion: Play it safe and go with the first. Good luck!

    Spray on trousers are probably not a good idea unless you are wearing something fairly long and loose over them. It might be ok if the suit jacket is fairly long, but as the other person has said, always play it safe and go with the more conservative option, especially given the type of job you are applying to.
