A fitted jacket will help create a more upscale look which is great for a job interview, or if you just want a more structured, high-fashion look.  A fitted jacket will also not consume you and the rest of your outfit, and instead delicately add to it.

A striped shirt is a subtle yet eloquent pattern that looks great on anyone and can easily be paired with the rest of your outfit.  It is also an easy way to introduce a new color or add a pop of color if you feel the rest of your outfit is lacking boldness.  

Vertical stripes will help elongate you while horizontal stripes will help fill out your form.
