Greetings Fashoinistos/as! As summer slowly creeps up on us, so does internship season. If you haven’t started applying for every internship under the sun, then now is the time. First things first though, you’ll want to make a great impression. Dressing for interviews can be tricky if you aren’t aware of all the rules. This week’s Fashoinisto teaches just how to stay on track to land that perfect internship position.
When dressing for an interview, you never want to go overboard. Fashion is an amazing outlet but should be used carefully when trying to make a professional statement. For you boys out there trying to climb up the social ladder, try placing a fitted V-neck sweater over a button-down shirt. If you’re a fan of color, it’s okay to introduce it into one area of your outfit but don’t go crazy with it. Craving Color? Tie up this teal beauty from Express.
Business men from all over are becoming more and more fashion savvy these days. Fall into their footsteps with a pair of Salvatore Ferragamo penny loafers. Shine them up bright and your first impression is on it’s way to a success. Lastly, suit pants come in a wide variety of sizes and styles. I’m finding the slimmer fit pants very flattering Fashionisto’s and also a great statement maker. You’ll definitely want to try the Photographer Suit Pant by Express here.
hint: Make a lasting impression this week and dress yourself up for success. Not only will you exude confidence in your new look but you’ll also be giving your potential employer one more reason to want to hire you. Pair a light knit sweater over a button-down shirt and tie. Slip on a slim fitting pant with a shiny pair of penny loafers. To take your internship style to the next level, place your precious resume in a briefcase. Burberry has the perfect one for you here. Good luck Fashionisto’s and remember, your first impression, is always your last one.
