    I have an interview comming up at a coffee shop, second cup for those familar with the chain. I'm not really sure what to wear. I kind of want to avoid dress pants and a shirt because I don't think that look really fits what they look for in employees.

    Normally, I wear jeans, sneakers or driving mocs, sweater with a collared shirt, a cardigan sometimes, hoodies fairly often. I was thinking of just wearing dry denim jeans, suede driving mocs, and a burgandy sweater over top of a white dress shirt. I'm just not sure about wearing jeans to an interview, it seems pretty casual. On the other hand this is a coffee shop, maybe I'm completely over-thinking things?

    Wear what you feel comfortable and confident in.

    Probably. Coffee shop is about as casual as it gets. Put on a decent shirt or polo shirt and some clean pants. The only thing I'd stay away from is wearing sneaks. Just look at what the staff wears and step it up a notch. It's more important that they like you than admire your clothing.
