You always want to dress to impress, especially on the job. When you land that internship you’ve been dying for, you want to make a great first impression and let your confidence shine through. Your outfit can make a huge difference.
I spotted this Fashionista on campus in an internship-ready ensemble. She looks professional while still showing off her personal style. She wears a comfy brown cable knit sweater with a vintage-inspired embellished collar. Collars are a fun way to add a bit of personality to any outfit. You can even get creative and spend an afternoon with a new DIY project (you can find tons of tutorials online). She pairs the sweater with a burgundy pleated skirt, showing that you can still rock a skirt in this winter weather, with tights of course.
She also stays warm by wearing a navy blue coat with a luxurious fur collar. I love how her outfit is full of different textures and each piece works so well together. She adds a pair of black lace-up shoes, a toque and a structured leather bag. From a laptop to a couple of cute notepads and a supply of pens, her bag is perfect for carrying around the internship essentials. She finishes off her look with dark purple lipstick, gray nail polish and a couple of simple gold rings.
One Simple Change: Go from a day at your internship to a winter night out by switching the large bag for a smaller cross-body bag or a clutch. Then change from flat shoes to a cute pair of wedge booties and you’re good to go.
