    I got an interview for the role of a fast track delivery driver for Argos. I don't have any suit on me as I'm at Uni.

    WHAT DO I WEAR?

    As it's argos, I'd probably wear black trousers/jeans and a (white?) shirt, smartish shoes. As long as that's ironed and presentable, then you should look fine for it imo!

    I'd possibly go as far to say a suit for this type on interview a little overkill - did they give you a dress code at all??

    mobbsy91 is entirely right here. A suit is entirely unnecessary for this job. Just something smart, along the smarter side of smart casual, even. No jeans, no trainers - nothing ripped or worn, nothing with slogans, or in overly bright colours.

    Having read your second post, though, surely you have some smart shirts in muted colours - blue, lilac? And the lack of any smart shoes or trousers could be a bit of a trouble (you'll have to make do with black jeans if you've not got any smart trousers).

    I really don't have any other smart shirt colours except from black or any smart shoes.
    I have full black Nike SB, adidas NMDs, Vans and Yeezys.

    Can you invest in a pair of black shoes.... they're not that expensive, and will be useful in the future as well...

    Well, if you don't have time, then you're just going to have to pick the smartest out of what you have...!
