WHAT TO WEAR: Internship

What to Wear

Given the wide range of internships available to students, knowing what to wear for a specific job can be a daily challenge. Thankfully, this Fashionista has nailed a uniform that would work for most creative internships — allowing her to be sophisticated and unique.

This Fashionista’s ensemble works because of its sunny disposition. Her yellow peacoat and sunflower dress give the look a cute, positive vibe — the perfect attitude for a young intern. The A-line fit of her dress ensures that her waist looks tiny, all the while giving her room to breathe. To keep the look dressy, this Fashionista’s daisy dress features a black background and collar. The black background increases the formality of her look. To maintain her polish, this Fashionista wears modest black tights and trendy ankle boots.

Achieving this Fashionista’s look is easy and inexpensive. The center piece of this outfit — the collared floral dress — which is abundant among moderately priced shops such as New Look, Topshop and Forever 21. This dress from New Look is a personal favourite, given its classic flower print and black background. To keep covered, follow this Fashionista’s lead by investing in a bright peacoat. A bright coat is an essential item because it can easily uplift even the plainest outfit. For shoes, choose a pair of black ankle boots. Although I recommend investing in the Acne Pistol boots, Topshop also provides more wallet friendly options. When choosing a pair of boots, a chunky heel and moderate platform will keep any intern comfy and sophisticated while working. To add a touch of whimsy, tie back the locks with a bow clip or a silk ribbon.

One Simple Change: Is the internship corporate? Trade in the dress for a collared blouse and tailored black slacks.
