One of the first steps that most of us take into adulthood during our college careers is finding an internship. Though securing an internship after a long application process and countless interviews may seem like the most stressful part, the worst actually comes after you’ve received that acceptance call or email. For me, staring into my closet the day before the start of an internship is actually the most nerve-wracking part of it all.
Although it is important to cater your outfit to the business’s work environment, you don’t have to forgo your personal style in order to blend in with sea of the black, navy and gray that are all too common in office wear. This Fashionista definitely stands out with in her personalized take on office attire. Wearing summer friendly colors of white and beige is a great way to stay in season, while not wearing colors that are too overbearing for an office. Her silk chinos are a great alternative to wearing typical dress pants, which often cause you to lose your natural shape.
Accessories are also a great option to show off your personal style and add some interest to your outfit. This Fashionista opted for gold throughout her ensemble. Wearing a gold necklace, bangle and nude sandals with gold features, the color complements her entire outfit.
Though finally becoming an adult may seem bleak, that doesn’t mean your wardrobe has to be. Experiment with different colors, patterns and fabrics to own your new internship with confidence and style!
