What to wear?

Seemed like it should go here but feel free to move it :)

I have a job interview on Thursday for a job as an after school playworker and I was wondering what I should wear. I'm going to be travelling up by train and bus and it'll take me about 2 hours to get there. Given the current weather, it looks like it'll be quite hot so I don't want to turn up all sweaty. Also, should I wear a suit or something a bit more casual like a blouse and trousers or something?

It's been so long since I had an interview, please help!

    I would wear blouse and trousers. Is there a dress code as such for the job? That may help you.

    Looking after kids i would think you'd need to wear quite casual clothes that it doesnt matter if they get mucky so for interview nothing too formal, just smart trousers/skirt and a nice blouse/top i would think

    I agree with Lexi. Given the hot weather, I would be inclined to travel in a skirt without tights and put tights on in the train loo just before arriving. A short-sleeved blouse would be fine.

    I find wearing this always ensures I close the deal.

    Ignore CCH.

    Neat and tidy top and bottoms - don't need a suit, just need to look like you've put in a bit of effort to take it seriously.

    There's always the summer top foe the journey, swap for smarter at the last minute.

    I find this to be a good idea in any circumstance.

    Thank you, ladies. I'm thinking of opting for a dark, short-sleeved blouse so that if there are sweat patches, they shouldn't see them. Changing when I get to the station sounds like a pretty good idea.

    Melian, no dress code was mentioned so I've asked a friend who has a similar job what she wears.
