What I love most about interning and living in New York City is its diversity and culture. It is not rare that I get on the elevator in my building and the women around me are speaking French, Russian or Spanish. I love feeling like I live in the biggest melting pot in the world, and meeting Fashionistas from all over is truly inspiring. When I approached this floral Fashionista she smiled and politely asked me to speak slower because she did not understand English well. Turns out, this Fashionista is from France and is interning at a French beauty company here in the Big Apple. Eventually this Fashionista agreed to be photographed and I am sure glad I caught this international Fashionista.
This Fashionista’s outfit is simple and fun. While I focus on fashion while discussing interns’ outfits, I couldn’t help but to address this Fashionista’s hair first. Braids are always a given in the summer—they are easy to do, hide frizz and keep you cool. This Fashionista rocked a braided headband to her internship. Styling your hair in a non-fuss do like this Fashionista is perfect for an internship. You won’t have to worry about fixing your hair all day and can focus on your internship tasks.
Even though this Fashionista is from a different country, she has the intern style down: dress comfortably, professionally and add your own personal flare. Her floral skirt and sheer blouse are fun while her black tights and practical black flats make her outfit professional.
I cannot stress enough to either wear flats or bring a tote bag, like this Fashionista did, with a change of flats inside. You never know when you will have to go on an unexpected errand and no boss wants to hear the “Sorry I was limping down 7th Ave because my feet hurt so I’m late” excuse. You and your feet will both thank me.
