Internships are a great way to keep you busy over the summer. They offer you work experience, pry you away from the hours of Netflix you shouldn’t be watching and, best of all, they give you an opportunity to go on a business casual shopping spree! Who doesn’t love that? But sometimes, it gets a little hard to figure out what is work appropriate, what isn’t and what’s in between. If you’re office is a casual setting, this week’s Fashionista has the perfect look.
When it’s casual Friday, your thighs are probably jumping for joy because you don’t have to squeeze them into an uncomfortably tight pencil skirt. This Fashionista’s jeans are an excellent choice for casual Friday. They are dark wash, so they give off a professional vibe, and they hug her in all the right places. The last thing you want is to come into work looking frumpy (even though you may automatically feel that way so early in the morning).
Naturally, office buildings tend to keep their offices very well air-conditioned; sometimes enough to make you feel like it should be snowing inside. This Fashionista’s duster sweater is a great piece to throw on and off as the temperature goes up and down. It’s warm, cozy and fashionable — now that’s office hypothermia done right! She also wore a basic black V-neck under her sweater, which is both casual and classic, and perfect for a professional setting.
Last on the laundry list of must-haves this Fashionista is sporting her black smoking flats. Flats are perfect for a professional setting because, for one, they are classic and feminine and two, they make you look at the interns wearing four inch heels and let out a sigh of relief. You need to be comfortable at work to get your job done, and when the boss calls you to make a coffee run, you can get there in half the time.
One Simple Change: I for one have experienced the chaos it is to have to catch a flight right after work to go on a much deserved summer vacation. Take it from me, don’t waste time changing your entire outfit. This outfit is perfect for traveling all on its own— just take off the sweater and stow it into a cute black tote bag and you’re ready to travel in style!
