A well-tailored suit is the way to go if you’re interviewing to become a flight attendant, since that’s what you’ll be wearing for your uniform. Choose a suit in a darker color like blue, brown, gray or black. A single-breasted suit will be the best style since most airlines offer this style for the men’s uniform. On your interview, make sure that you wear your jacket buttoned up and check that your fly is zipped up before you go.

Shop the look


Always wear a tie to a flight attendant interview. Depending on the material of your suit, choose a silk or matte tie. It should match well with your suit and shirt. Avoid a tie with images, loud colors, designer logos or bold patterns.

My advice to any man interviewing for a flight attendant position: wear a suit with a shirt and a tie. Some men decide to not wear a jacket for their interview. I would personally still recommend wearing one – even in summer, but if you’re not going to wear a jacket, at least wear a shirt and tie.

A simple white or pale blue cotton long sleeve shirt is excellent. Make sure to iron your shirt and tuck it neatly into your pants with your buttons lining up with your belt buckle. Cufflinks are optional.

Shop the look


Traditional black leather dress shoes with laces are always a safe bet. Most airlines require men to wear this style with their uniform, so you will already be investing in your flight attendant footwear. Make sure your shoes have no metal accents and are always polished and shiny.

Shop the look


Black socks are always best, but other dark colors that match your suit are a good option too. Your socks should be long enough to not expose your skin when you sit down.

Shop the look


Stick with a simple black leather belt.

Shop the look


Flight attendants have to wear a watch to work so wearing one to your interview shows that you’re ready for the job. Choose a classic, analog-style wristwatch. In addition to your watch, you could choose to wear one (wedding) ring.

Shop the look


Take an elegant briefcase or laptop bag for your documents. To fit with the belt and shoes, a black leather option would be best.

Shop the look


Your nails should be well-groomed and all in the same length. Cover any tattoos and remove any earrings or piercings you may have. You can wear some cologne, but make sure to not wear anything heavy.

Most airlines prefer short hair on men. Some airlines allow facial hair but any airline will prefer you to attend your interview clean-shaven.
