College kids tend to have a love-hate relationship with summertime; I know I do. There is so much joy in knowing that for about three months, we can come home to meals made with love, days spent with Netflix and zero school work to worry about. However, you start to miss the freedom and fun and even headaches that come with late nights and not enough sleep, spent with the best friends in the world. Meaning, you start to get stir-crazy and are itching to get back to campus ASAP. If you are smart and proactive, you can snag an internship at home, honing your social and practical skills, all while keeping you busy. Internships not only open doors for your future, but for experimenting with your own professional and mature fashion tastes!
Bryant Park in New York City is typically flooded with people of all ages and walks of life. This Fashionisto is interning right off of Park Avenue, and experiencing the wonders of city life. Since a work uniform for the financial district is usually just a button-down, plain pants and nice shoes, it’s hard to find ways to branch out from the ordinary sea of workmen. This is why a classic pair of red pants (or anything red for that matter) can be the key to taking a work outfit up a notch.
Maria Sharapova has said, “I want to be different. If everyone is wearing black, I want to be wearing red.” Want to stand out in an interview? Go for the dramatic neutrals and red combination. Whether it’s with a classic pair of red pants like this Fashionisto chose to do or simply a red pair of shoes, go for the red. It will be able to brighten any outfit in an instant, and make an impression in your interview. It’s the color of confidence, so wear it as such.
