What to Wear to a Flight Attendant Interview

For more like this, check out all of my Flight Attendant Posts


What you choose to wear to your flight attendant interview is a big deal. After all, flight attendants have to be presentable and in full uniform compliance every day we fly.  Whether it’s a video interview or a face-to-face interview, always dress for the job!! (again, I would dress just as well for the video interview). This is not the time to make a big fashion statement. Keep it simple and classy. Make it easy for the interviewer to visualize you in a professional airline uniform.

These are my tips:

1. Wear a Neutral Color Suit

Dark blue/navy or black are the best colors to wear. You can also wear grey, brown, or tan.

A white blouse/shirt with a collar would be best to wear with your suit. If you don’t want to wear white, choose another light color.

Here are some good examples:

Calvin Klein Women’s Two Button Lux Blazer (Standard & Petite Sizes), Black, 14

Calvin Klein Women’s Straight Fit Suit Skirt, Black, 14

Calvin Klein Women’s Classic-Fit Suit Pant, Black, 8

Atnlewhi Womens Basic Long Sleeve Button Down Shirts Simple Pullover Stretch Formal Casual Shirt White

Kenneth Cole Unlisted Men’s 2 Button Slim Fit Suit with Hemmed Pant, New Navy, 40 Regular

2. Wear Closed Toe Shoes

Shoes should be solid black leather

For women, it’s best to wear heels – but not too high (1 to 3 inches)

3. Always Wear a Watch

Having good time management is a huge part of the job.

Honestly, I HIGHLY recommend the Apple Watch for flight attendants. It updates your time zone automatically! Thats a big deal when you are constantly flying all over the place. It tells you the city you’re in, the date, and the day of the week – all things us flight attendants constantly forget. It also tells you the temperature, which is extremely helpful when you’re not familiar with a city you’re laying over in.

I know it’s expensive- so if you don’t want to buy one just yet, here are some other good options:

4. Keep Jewelry to a Minimum

Only wear jewelry if it compliments your outfit. If you wear earrings, make sure they’re studs.

5. Keep Makeup Simple

Natural makeup is best. Mascara, eyeliner and natural color eyeshadow with red or pink lips.


6. Have Polished Nails That Are Not Too Long

Clear, light pink, and nude are always great choices
