    Hi guys,

    I have an interview at John Lewis but it's for the concesson Ralph Lauren.

    Has anyone had previous experience at John Lewis or Ralph Lauren interviews.
    Also, what would you actually wear to the interview? Would you go stylish or super smart?

    Thanks🙃🙂

    go smart, if you're going for an decent clothing brand and can show a bit of appropriate style within being smart (e.g. a shirt that fits the style of the shop, an accessory that is the same style etc) then do that but I would go for appearing smart before you try and look fashionable

    Thanks for the prompt reply! I was thinking just wear a nice white Ralph Lauren shirt, blue skinny chinos and some nice tan brogues? And then maybe but a smart blazer, keeping it classy🙂

    What i mean is the way you should dress. It's not really a place for looking like someone from a phone shop. The customers are generally older people. I'd just copy what the staff wear to a greater or lesser degree.
