I'm interviewing at a conservative accounting firm and have these two options:

A:
Silver cosmic wonder cape
Rick Owens sheer black top
Ann Demeulemeester black leather leggings
Raf Simons astronaut boots

B:
Brooks brother navy 2B suit
Brooks brother white dress shirt
JPressNavy/red rep tie
C&J black captoes

Please help me out, it's a lonely world and I'm totally confused!!! HALP!!!!!!!!!!!!

Do I wear the dress shirt over or under the suit? I'm sorta new to this and have never read or heard about interviews. It seems the internet is lacking in guides on this topic and there isn't anyone I can ask at my school so I figured I'd ask on this forum. Anyone knows how people dress in offices?

Well I know Anne Hathaway LLP is a firm which pretty much requires business wear. So I would go with choice C, the Tom Ford Pant Suit.

I'd go with the cape. And only the cape.

Conservative interviews are the perfect opportunity to rock out with your...sock out. Yes, I'm endorsing pants with no break.

You might want to wear a utlity belt, replete with grappling hook and suction cup gloves....just to show them you are ready for everything. Be sure it matches the boots.

If Frank Costanza's lawyer can wear a cape, there is no reason that you can't wear the Silver Cosmic Wonder Cape.

Are you serious? This must be a joke. You say you are all confused, and then you list a classic and acceptable outfit for interviewing. Definitely go with A, it's classic and will communicate to the firm just how dedicated you are to the job.
