Wrapping up finals, packing up your car with your stuff and returning home means one thing: summer is here. Notice I didn’t say summer break. That’s because for the true career driven Fashionistas/os, summer is no time to slack. Instead of working on a tan, summer should be a time to work on your resume. After sweating through interviews and landing your dream job, the easy part is behind you. It is important to make a great first impression that you will sustain throughout the duration of your internship.
So what to wear on the first day of the internship? This Fashionista did not sacrifice style or class in her internship approved ensemble. I am digging her chartreuse colored shorts. The key to wearing shorts to an internship is to make sure they are not too short or too tight. This Fashionista’s loose fitting pair almost looks like a skirt. The scalloped edge adds a playful detail that is still office appropriate.
It is important when sporting shorts to the office to keep the rest of the look covered and refined. Her button-up collared shirt is a staple in the arena of “business appropriate” clothing. But instead of making the top look ordinary or stiff, she layered a necklace over the collar. This little detail makes all difference and instantly makes the Fashionista look fashion-forward and fresh.
The office is not the place to sport your six-inch heels. Your internship may have you running all over and you want to be prepared for any task you are given. Her pearly white brogues are the perfect shoe choice. The lace-up feature has a polished look while the somewhat metallic finish makes them anything but ordinary.
Let your outfit do all the work in making your first impression. I’m sure you will have your hands plenty full with tasks throughout the rest of the summer.
One Simple Change: Finally meeting the boyfriend’s parents? Swap out the denim jacket for a fitted blazer in a fun color or print. Next, leave your messenger bag at work and grab your favorite clutch. Finally, pop on a cute pair of heels and you are ready to make his parents gush over how great your are.
