When we were younger, summer used to mean relaxing at the pool, sleeping in late and selling homemade lemonade for 50 cents to anyone who would actually buy it. It was also the time when the answer to the question, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” was easy. A firefighter princess. Duh. Now that we’ve grown up, the answer to the question is harder. We have to actually think about the one thing we’re all afraid of: the future. One way to prepare for your future is to get an internship in the career path that you’re interested in. Not as cool as a princess who fights fires, I know, but internships teach you what you can’t learn in a classroom. Not to mention, they’re great resume builders. For most college students, summer relaxation is put on hold and this season becomes a time for hard work. Don’t worry—when you land your dream job in a couple of years, all of the missed beach lounging will have been worth it.
If you want to make sure the company notices you at your internship, you have to obviously work hard—but dressing the part doesn’t hurt. It’s extremely important to look professional while staying true to your unique style.
This Fashionista does a perfect job of putting together an outfit that is appropriate yet one-of-a-kind. I am obsessed with her paintbrush stroke top and her printed pants. I cannot get enough of mixing patterns in an ensemble. It’s a trend that many people shy away from. Having more than one pattern going on at the same time for some reason is scary. Juxtaposing different designs in one outfit is bold and shows a willingness to take risks with clothing. Don’t be afraid to try something new. This Fashionista shows that if you incorporate a large gallant print with a smaller, subtler print, you can’t go wrong!
She accessorizes her bold ensemble with a statement necklace, round sunglasses and a pair of yellow heels. These pieces add interest to the outfit without being overbearing. This Fashionista is sure to stand out in the office for her amazing style. Without a doubt, she is “dressed for success.”
One Simple Change: Her printed top is great for the office. Swap the shirt for a crop top to transform this outfit into an ensemble for a night out with your girls.
