Not sure what to wear during your television interview or corporate video? Here are 7 tips on what not to wear on TV.

Brightly coloured clothing and hair is definitely what you should wear on TV.
  1. Avoid flashy or distracting clothing and jewellery such as bold patterns, bright colours or excessively noisy costume jewellery.
  2. Don’t wear clothing with logos or slogans. You don’t want to promote a brand or cause during the interview, and the television station won’t like it. They may ask you to change.
  3. It’s not a good idea to wear anything too tight or revealing. You want to come across as professional and focus on your message, not your appearance.
  4. Remember your shoes, and avoid anything too casual or loud. Sneakers or really high shoes that could make a noise.
  5. Steer away from outfits that make you feel uncomfortable or self-conscious. You want to be your best self with confidence during your interview, so choose clothing you know is comfortable, gives you confidence, and makes you feel your best.
  6. Think about your colours. Avoid wearing black, white, or colours that clash with the background. You can ask the producer for assistance with this. You also want to avoid colours that will wash you out on camera.
  7. The production team wants you to feel comfortable and at ease, so ask as many questions as you need.

By keeping these tips in mind, you can ensure that your appearance doesn’t distract from your message during your television interview.
