Being a student intern in a professionals environment can be tough. Figuring out what to wear in that environment can be a hard adjustment as well. It is absolutely essential to make sure that you are complying with the dress code, while still remaining true to your personal style. This week, here at Maryland, I spotted a Fashionista wearing an outfit that was appropriate for both her workplace and unique taste.
This Fashionista’s outfit is made of professional garments with a flair of style, which is perfect for a successful day at the office. The first important piece of her outfit is her skirt. Much like this lime one from Topshop, her skirt adds a bit of character to her look without overstepping any boundaries. Her top, although sleeveless, reinforces the professional vibe due to its structured shape and classic stripes. This Fashionista’s shoes are certainly trendy, but they are also fit for the office. A similar pair can be found by kate spade. This Fashionista finished off her ensemble with cute sunglasses, much like these from Forever 21.
Overall, this Fashionista demonstrates that dressing for your internship does not have to be a bore. To dress for success, express your own fashion preferences while being mindful of workplace restrictions.
One Simple Change: To build an outfit for the first time you meet your significant other’s parents, trade this Fashionista’s sleeveless blouse for a more elegant one, like this option by Calvin Klein. By wearing a more sophisticated top that is still comfortable, you are guaranteed to look chic and feel fresh!
