    Blouse + skirt IMO, can never be too smart for an interview :)

    EDIT:

    Avril Lavigne managed it, even if she couldn't put it on properly.

    I'm not going naked, in my undercrackers, in fancy dress or anything silly.

    I think it's always good to dress slightly smarter than the clothes you would wear in the job.

    what do you have available? a blouse/shirt with skirt/black trousers I reckon would be appropriate for the first two. don't know why but I just think B&Q is more trousers than the other two. maybe a polo shirt and trousers?

    which job do you want most btw?

    Im not sure i think paperchase would be a nice place to work.

    I have just about everything from jeans to a trouser suit and a skirt to match.

    (i'll be removing some of my piercings as well as this usually helps)

    Actually Blackstar you couldn't of picked a worst time to ask the OcUK male population what you should wear, have you seen the boob thread? The sexual frustration is almost tangible :p

    Write 'EMPLOY ME' on your funbags and wear a low-cut top.

    ;) What was she doing when she checked? No dont worry I'm joking, woulnt want to offend the much loved blackstar. Would just go for the norm, trousers (semi smart, black) and a smart top. dont be too smart there shops at the end of the day, just be nice, talk well, and be confident (In a nice way, not an ali g way, lol).

    I agree with you idea, scope out the store and dress in a similar vein, apart from B&Q where I would go smart casual, maybe trouser suit with a nice top underneath, not a blouse.
