You've got a stellar resumé and references up the wazoo, but when you head into a job interview, your appearance dictates how it will go. "It takes about 2.2 seconds to make a first impression, and what you're wearing is a huge non-verbal and often subconscious way of ensuring the interviewer thinks you are a great fit," says Nicole Williams, LinkedIn's Connection Director. She adds, "Speaking of fit, regardless of industry or what you wear, fit is the key to looking your best."

Since sartorial choices are often the last thing on your mind when heading into an interview, but your outfit can give you a confidence boost (classic chicken and egg situation), we've narrowed down the field so all you need to prep is your "I just care too much." response to the "What's your biggest weakness?" question.
