Every summer New York City becomes packed with a whole new crowd of ambitious college students taking one step closer in perusing their dream careers and more often then not these interns are always dressed to impress.
On one of my weekend walks through Washington square park I came across dozens of fashionably dressed college students enjoying the sun and street entertainment in the park. While I was eating my first real New York soft pretzel, I spotted this Fashionista sitting on one of the many park benches in Washington Square. After talking with her for a couple minuets I soon learned that she was interning at Conde Neste the home of Teen Vogue and Vogue for the summer and like myself attended a small liberal arts college in the mid west. Once we bounded over our experiences in attending school surrounded by cornfields we began to discuss how difficult it could be to dress for work while interning at a fashion magazine. As an intern you spend a great amount of time of your feet which can make it difficult to wear sky high heels, so us fashion interns must learn to be creative yet comfortable when it comes to our footwear.
This Fashionista intern did a great job still looking casual and put together by combining her cropped top and orange colored jeans with a classic pair of Sperry boat shoes. Although her cropped top maybe more appropriates for weekends her shoes are a great option for the work place. They are a classic staple that never seems to go out of style and you can rely on them to be comfortable for the entire day. If boat shoes are not for you I recommend investing in a comfortable yet still fashion forward pair of flats. For example London Sole always has s great selection of comfortable ballet flats in a large selection of colors. Also oxfords lace ups are another great option. Since summer has only just begun make sure to invest in some comfortable flat shoes, since not only will they be good for work, but they will also be good for strolling around the city.
