I need to wear a suit to an interview, professional interview. Need advice on matching black shoes?

Posted under Resume tips for Women by Marcus Pottea on December 29th, 2012 8:11 am

I see many black dress shoes have rounded tips, few pointed tips, but more have the flat tips. I am looking to buy flat tips because that is what I still see more of at the moment. I live in the upper midwest. Which are now in style please? Which will look normal in an interview? I will wear a conservative business suit because it is a financial position for which I am interviewing.Thanks,

The best shoes to wear look nice, but are not too flashy. Either round or a flat front is fine. Just stay away from anything to shiny – no metal tips – no odd colors – no funny laces. Just plain black dress shoes are what to wear.
