It depends a lot on what country you live in and what people's standard dress codes are like, but VictorR's response is a good one.What does that look like?
all my job interviews so far were "business casual", so I weard a good looking chino pants, a normal t-shirt and a plain shirt over it. most other applicants weared the same. (men)Dress: standard "rule of thumb" is one step better than the job you're applying for. So in most cases, business casual, and if you're applying for a professional position, then business formal.
in my case I don´t needed that, because I always had to apply via e-mail or online on their website, so there was no need to bring something in paper with me, because they already had a copy and usually they print out the e-mail or online application + documents.Also, bring extra copies of your resume/CV/application and a sheet with your references on it, along with copies of work samples if you have any.
The answer to that is 'it depends." If there is only one job opportunity you are interested in, go apply to several others just for the experience, and turn them down if necessary. If there are many openings in your field, don't plan on taking the first one available - shop for a place where you will be comfortable and effective. You can ask questions, and the employer will appreciate it if you are interested in finding a symbiotic relationship, not just a checque for whatever they can get you to do.How should I present myself aesthetically?

OMG Richelle! I've missed you!Having been through more interviews than I care to remember, be calm and as confident as you can be in the situation. It is not anything more than a casual chat where you have the ability to sell your strengths. Any interview you undertake requires a confidence in your own abilities and special talents. If you sell yourself based on your knowledge of self, then things tend to go more towards the positive than the negative.
Answer any questions posed to you succinctly and without too much overelaboration. You are selling a product which just happens to be your abilities and how those fit in with the job you are applying for and nothing more. Relax and do not show your nervousness if you can do that.
Good luck and I hope your interview goes well.
