I never want to feel stuffy and office-like when meeting a potential employer. I'm much more confident and pleasant (not to mention, clear-headed) when I feel at ease. Therefore, what I wear needs to allow me to breathe and needs to have a bit of fun built into it. It lets your prospective employer know that you know what you're doing and that you take risks that pay off, that you have a good eye and you apply it to more than just your job, that you take time and pride in your work as well as in yourself.
