When you are dressing for a job interview the image you present is important, even if you're applying for a part-time hourly job at a local store. Your image is what makes the first impression on the interviewer, so it's important to dress appropriately when interviewing and when applying for jobs in person.
Regardless of the type of job you're interested in, you want that first impression to be a great one. When dressing for an interview for a professional position, dress accordingly in business attire.
If you're applyng for a job in a more casual environment, a store or restaurant, for example, it's still important to be neat, tidy, and well-groomed, and to present a positive image to the employer. Attending an interview for a job at a startup? Startup casual attire may be the dress code of the day.
There are, of course, some things you shouldn't wear to any job interview, even though, believe it or not, some people don't seem to think it matters what you wear. I've seen people show up in clothes that I don't think I'd wear anywhere in public.
