Dressing for Job Interviews

Dressing for Job Interviews

Business dress in Hawaii is somewhat different from business dress in mainland locations. For men a crisp, business “aloha” shirt tucked into dress slacks with a matching belt is generally appropriate for employment interviews in Hawaii. However, a conservative dark navy, gray or charcoal two-piece business suit or conservative sports coat with a crisp, white, long-sleeve, button-down dress shirt is also acceptable.

For women, even though “business aloha” attire is sometimes worn on the job, a skirt suit (dark navy, gray or charcoal) is recommended for most job interviews. This is safer than pants suits. Other conservative colors, such as beige or brown, are also acceptable. Skirt length should be a little below the knee and never shorter than above the knee.
