If you're considering an exciting career as a flight attendant, ace the interview while looking chic and sophisticated. Dress to impress while keeping your look effortlessly elegant. Historically, flight attendants enjoyed a glamorous profession and donned attractive, feminine uniforms. Show up to your interview with a modern take on glamour and sophistication.


Dress to impress for your flight attendant interview. Tailored pants in hues such as grey, black, navy and neutral tones will keep you in the line of sophistication. A matching tailored jacket is a must for this interview. A suit creates a professional look and helps you feel confident you're presenting your best to the world. If you're not so much a pants type of girl, a pencil skirt will work beautifully to create a professional ensemble. Wear a button-down collared shirt underneath. From pastels to jewel-tones, an array of colors will work.

Sophisticated Shoes

Complement your suit with a mid to low heel to bring together your ensemble. Remember this isn't a night out on the town, so leave those sky-high heels at home. Opt for a heel that is under 3 inches. From black to red, many colors will work but be sure to step out in a closed toe pump.


When it comes to accessories on the day of your interview, less is definitely more. Keep it simple and chic with pearl stud earrings and a pearl necklace. Small studs and a simple necklace that complements your attire will keep your look understated but polished. Instead of a necklace, a silk scarf in a fun hue will bring a pop of color and brightness to your look.


Leave your over-sized handbag at home for this interview. Choose an understated and small handheld clutch or handbag. A simple black clutch, such as an envelope- style clutch, will look amazing with your suit. If you don't have a clutch, any smaller-sized handbag will do, but opt for a classic handbag in a dark or neutral-toned color. Remember to bring a few copies of your resume and store them in a professional binder or portfolio.
