It has come that time of year where college students all around the country are buzzing for summer internships. It’s important to have a solid résumé and killer interview, but the secret ingredient to scoring that dream internship is to dress the part. As they always say, you have to dress to impress!
When I spotted this Fashionisto, I immediately thought that this would be a perfect internship interview outfit. It isn’t your bland go-to suit and tie, but instead it’s a bright and classic twist on how to dress formal. He kept the basics with a white-collar button-down shirt, black dress pants and black dress shoes, but the highlight of the outfit is a blue half-zip, allowing for a fun addition.
Just as easy as it may be to dust off that suit in the back of your closet that you only wore to your formal a few times, throwing over a colored half-zip can be just as easy (and way more trendy). If you are looking to make the outfit more formal, you can add a tie to the button-down and still keep the half-zip. This is a timeless and clean look that you can’t go wrong with.
Hint: When you’re trying to dress to impress, make sure you dress to express as well. Adding an electrifying twist to a cliché formal outfit can show a lot about your personality, making you not only stand out fashionably, but also stand out among the other qualified candidates you’re up against for the position! Always dress for success.
