Yes and no. While you do not want a corporate look a structured artsy blazer should be thrown in, and your shoes need a little more serious side to them (think peep toe or closed toe) If the blazer is too corporate shall we say think of a cardigan that has some structure!

OK for retail, service industry etc, not acceptable for anything corporate. Shoes, no bare shoulders, etc would be unacceptable in my field.

Agree - need to know what industry/position. #1 change: shoes. Black closed toe or a bright color, but then pull the color elesewhere with either a bolero jacket, bag or necklace or bracelet. Best wishes on the interview!

Not enough context to give a good answer. What type of job/industry are you interviewing for? Tech/retail industry sure change the shoes like others have said and it works. I would still wear full pants though. Legal/financial-no ; shoes pants and jacket are needed, more conservative venue needs more conservative dress for first impression.

Does your outfit look like what others at the company are wearing? If it’s a sneakers, T-shirt and jeans community, the outfit should be fine.

Then you’re looking great. Also looks nice for a work day when visitors may stop by or you’re leading in person/FaceTime meetings.

No pants too short need to be longer, shoes unprofessional this is not the beach. Need longer pants & a jacket on.

I really like your outfit! This is kind of my style too. But would probably wear the flats you have. All the best!

Closed-tip shoes are always safe... even the ones that don't have heels.
