Getting ready for a job interview is no doubt stressful. In addition to being prepared for odd questions, picking the right outfit can also make you a bundle of nerves. 

Get this, it seems we shouldn’t stress too hard, at least over which color outfit to wear. A new survey finds that black is basically your safest bet. 

A survey by SmartRecruiters looked at 180 applicants who nabbed a  job, and 1,800 who didn’t and finds that 70% of those who were hired wore mostly black outfits, with only 30% of those rejected opting for  black.

And if you’re worried that you may not be as pretty as other applicants, you shouldn’t be. The survey finds that 80% of those who successfully landed jobs described themselves as either average looking  or “slightly unattractive,” while 66% of those rejected considered  themselves “attractive” or “very attractive.”
