How to dress?

The rule of thumb in dressing for the interview is to dress professionally and conservatively. For most environments, a gray or navy business suit is appropriate.
Stay away from trendy clothing, flashy jewellery, colognes, and heavy make-up. The image should be toned down and professional.
There may be some exceptions to this, in fields that involve fashion or entertainment for example. But do your research, and when in doubt, err on the side of being conservative. First impressions, while they can’t substitute for sound preparation are, nonetheless, highly important.

Thank you to both yourself and Irina for a great workshop this morning, it was refreshing to hear some really basic ideas for the Dutch employment search which I'm sure will help start everyone off on a new career path! I will definitely be using the services of Together Abroad and one of my first actions is to revise my CV and submit this for a review.
