What is the best thing to wear for a job interview?

My mom has an interview for a part time job at PetSmart tomorrow, and we can't figure out what she should wear. Any good suggestions? Keep in mind, please, that she's in her 40's.

Khakis and a dress shirt, or khaki's, a simple top and a blazer over it. I wouldnt recommend a polo shirt because it seems a little informal for a 40 year old to wear to an interview- its better to be overdressed than underdressed!

NOT jeans and a t-shirt. Like the other guy said, kakhis and a polo should be fine for something like that.
