As we start the slope towards the end of our college years, our style begins to transition from student to professional. The undergraduate lifestyle gives way to the importance of interviews and internships. Our beloved crop tops and ripped jeans take the back burner and instead, we find ourselves reaching for blazers, button-downs and high waist-bottoms. Style makes a statement about who you are and where you are in life. While making this transformation and saying hello to bright futures, your style can upgrade in a effortless and fun manner. Londoners know how to combine these two lifestyles naturally in their city atmosphere. Walking down the Strand you can see sophisticated students carrying large portfolios and computer cases, while still flaunting their own individual styling habits.
This Fashionista was caught mid style alteration. She looks polished for her part time job, but also stands out in chic attire for her university classes. From her asymmetric haircut to her kate spade computer case, I couldn’t help but marvel at her personalized combination of wardrobe essentials. Matching classical customary outfit attire with a personalized monogrammed necklace and ornamental rings, she makes this movement towards the business world with an expressive wardrobe. Her outfit under her boyish blazer says she’s both comfortable and serious. Monochromatic blues, blacks and grays are the staple in the corporate world, but these colors take new forms in a youthful progression. Different textures, sizes and layering techniques give a comfortable feel to this professional attire, making it more wearable for an undergraduate.
Her bags parallel this stage in her life. She holds a metallic satchel on her left and a computer case on her right. Her statement says that she is ready to move forward but she’s not letting go of her favorite items and trends. Don’t lose your personality while upgrading your wardrobe in preparation for your dream job — keep looking gorgeous on that internship hunt!
