Would I look ridiculous wearing a white collar shirt to a blue collar job?

I am the same individual who created a public outrage the other day with my question regarding interview attire. Luckily for me, I have 2 more upcoming interviews next week, and for one of the jobs I was told to dress in WORK OUT clothes which i hope mean

Answers:

BLUE collar workers are those that do the real work(not paper pushers in an office) but guys with shovels, wrenches, hammers, or drive truck,(the actual work)

. WHITE collar means paper pushers office employees, government employees and office heads of business. They don't touch the business end of a shovel.

BTW That is not public outrage...it is how we respond...good English, bad English, slang English, humorous language. Whatever. Employers are all different. Some know how to hire and some go by some BOOK...and some just have that feeling...talking to you to make a judgement call. Some are just idiots. You will run into all of them sooner or later.

Painters are white collar workers. The White shirt makes them look both clean and professional.

The looking ridiculous is up to you.

Work out clothes is vague. Dress better than that your first day. What is the position? Office manager or instructor? 2 totally different outfits. Or Sales person that contacts with the Public or Assembly worker with No public contact? If you will probably have contact selling to the public you would wear a shirt with a collar(tie not necessarily) as you are assembling so a tie is dangerous there. And useless. A clip on is preferable.
. As they are both interviews, you actually are not working yet. so you dress in office attire. Between new jeans and sweats, new dark blue jeans would be acceptable. Sweats are not for work. Sweats are barely acceptable in stores. That is casual at home wear...akin to PJ's

A clean non branded T shirt is acceptable so long as there is no holes and it is not baggy wear. THIS IS AN INTERVIEW. You ain't got the job yet. Even if you got the job, your first day is not going to be heavy duty...but they will watch to see how you interact with the other personnel. Maybe on day 2 you can bring additional coveralls, or maybe the company supplies the coveralls(as they should) Note the footwear. That is your responsibility.
If you don't get the job, they really did not have a job opening, and was just testing out the waters to see what quality of people they could get.

If they really needed a body, the fact you are breathing is close enough. No resume necessary. Go to work.

White collar (professional, desk job ish work) and blue collar (more manual labor) refer to the type of work, they don't mean you should literally always wear something with a white or blue collar when at one of these jobs. The white collar should be fine, don't worry about that.

“Blue collar job” does not mean you literally wear a blue shirt. A white dress shirt will be fine for the interview. Sweat pants and a t-shirt might not be the kind of workout clothes the interviewer had in mind, but at least make sure you aren’t wearing worn out or sloppy looking sweats and T-shirt.

You have the wrong idea about a blue collar job, it does not mean wearing a blue shirt.
Wear a white one as everyone else does.
