Internships: a sign that, despite your own conscience, you may not be falling on your face and may actually know what you’re doing (a shocking thought-I know.) An internship grants a glimpse into the dreaded “real world,” and once you enter this world you realize it’s full of alleys and winding yellow-brick roads that lead you to Oz (your dream job.) Even if your internship isn’t anywhere close to that dream job, it’s still part of the road, and dressing the part can only help.
You want to be noticed at your internship; therefore, your outfit should exude confidence and show what an amazing Fashionista/o you truly are. You are trying to sell your favorite brand, yourself. It is necessary that your internship outfit really communicates the person you are or want to be.
This Fashionista’s outfit is an urban-chic twist on office wear. Her combination of girly basics with bohemian accents grants her a confident, yet approachable vibe. Her simple black top has sleek, modern lines providing a trendy, yet professional feel appropriate for any office. Her polka-dot skater skirt adds a feminine touch to her outfit that conveys a youthful energy that she will bring to her internship. Her lace-up ankle booties unify her contrasting color palette while adding an organic feel to this modern look.
She accessorizes with a bright handbag and headphones, which shows her fun personal style while also breaking the color-barrier and bringing in bright earth tones for that boho-chic feel. Don’t be afraid to incorporate color into your internship attire; this Fashionista shows how much a simple pop of color can add to an outfit!
One Simple Change: Headed out for a casual date with your summer fling? Lucky you! Replace the booties with nude pointed-toe pumps and ditch the headphones for a headband and you’re ready for a fun, flirty night.
