This Wednesday I have an important interview in front of 15 scientists, who will decide whether I get funding or not. Now, the prediction is that coming Wednesday will go into history as the hottest local day ever. The temperatures will be at least 30oC/90oF, but may rise considerably towards 38oC/100oF. I have to change my planned outfit to something I'll survive in, but wonder whether it is appropriate? First outfit: a dress with long transparent sleeves, but the length is on the short side for a formal interview? The body has a pleaded detail that's not apparent in the picture. The second: black stretch pants with a fitting top, but is it appropriate to go to an interview sleeveless? I could throw on a jacket at the moment of interview, but that might look strange with the hot weather. What do wear?
