WHAT TO WEAR: Internship

What to Wear

I am sure that everyone would agree that this semester flew by. Now it is time to take finals and go home for winter break. If the second semester goes as fast as the first one did, then summer will be here before we know it. Usually summer is a time for relaxation, but as you get older the summer is a time where you are either expected to be working or have an internship.

As if the stress of finding an internship isn’t enough, the daunting task of deciding what to wear once you get the internship is just as difficult. It is important to look professional, but still keep a youthful edge. This Fashionista’s outfit is perfect for an internship whether it is in the fall or the summer. Her houndstooth skirt is perfect for a professional environment. If you are wearing a skirt to work, then it is important to keep two things in mind, length and fit. There is a time and place for short, bodycon skirts, but the office is definitely not one of them.

This Fashionista pairs her tailored skirt with a pair of black tights, boots and a simple long sleeve shirt. If the weather is cool enough, then tights are also a great idea to incorporate into your look, especially if you want to wear a pair of tall boots like this Fashionista. However, if your internship is in the summer, then no one is expecting you to show up to work in tights. Instead leave the tights at home, wear a pair of flats instead of tall boots and switch the long sleeve top for short sleeves. No matter what the season is, this outfit is perfect and professional to wear for an internship.

One Simple Change: If you want to make this outfit more appropriate for lunch with friends, then throw on a long black cardigan and wear a pair of black combat boots to give the look more edge.
