“BEEP, BEEP, BEEP,” your alarm awakens you to a new day and it is time for you to prepare for work. Finding ways to spice up boring work wear can be challenging. Black pencil skirts and gray pant suits do not scream excitement or fashion and they sure do not make those long busy work days go by any faster.
This Fashionista found a way to beat bland work attire and still look professional. I found her strolling around Anthropologie checking out hippie-chic apparel on her lunch break. She looked adorable in a floral printed knee-length skirt. A printed skirt, blouse or blazer is a great way to add a pop to the standard business casual look. You can also pair a printed dress with a neutral colored blazer. She toned her look back by pairing her eye-catching skirt with a neutral white button-down blouse and nude wedge pumps. Wedge pumps are the perfect work shoe for this summer. They are on trend and super comfortable, making it easy to run unexpected errands, attend meetings around the city or enjoy a little shopping while out for lunch. A large multicolored striped tote bag easily concealed her laptop and papers and added an interesting contrast against her skirt. A printed tote is also a great alternative to the dull work bag. Small bracelets and studs completed her work look. Aviator shades blocked the sun and added a hint of edge to her classic look.
When getting dressed for your internship remember to remain professional. Adding your own style to your work attire can be a fun way to show off your personality and stand out at the office, but be sure to remain professional and keep everything at an appropriate length and fit.
One Simple Change: Let your hair down by exchanging the white button-down blouse for a crop top and the wedge heels for a funky pair of sandals and you are ready for a day out with friends or a weekend getaway.
