If you find a trend you like and you can rock, go for it. But often times those trends come with restrictions. It is hard to rock one trend only, and most times, it should not be done. For example, an outfit full of neon? Definitely never allowed, especially at an internship. However, there are few trends that you can rock 100 percent, in every aspect of your outfit.
This Fashionista, who is an intern at Anna Sui, pulls off the sheer, neutral trend with ease. From her sheer ivory blouse, to her gray pleated skirt, down to her brown oxfords, this intern incorporates neutrals into every aspect of her outfit. I love that she adds a touch of personality to her look with her ombre hair, rings and geek-chic glasses. Just because your outfit may be neutral doesn’t mean you can’t stand out. Her hair and glasses definitely let her fun personality shine through.
After writing about internship style this summer, I feel like I have many tips on how to dress for internships without sacrificing personal style. The best internship style advice I can give is knowing your dress code. What one intern can wear is completely different from what another intern can. If I showed up to my internship wearing business pants and a blazer, everyone would stare, and not because they are envious of my outfit. And I am sure if an intern working on Wall Street showed up in what I wear to my magazine internship, they would be sent home to change immediately. Know what is acceptable at your internship and what works best for your body and you will never go wrong.
