WHAT TO WEAR: Internship

From the Editor, What to Wear

Now that the holidays have come and gone, it is time to enjoy what is left of winter break before the spring semester begins. The beginning of a new semester means challenging classes, a heavy course load, a part-time job and, perhaps most importantly, an internship.

Dressing properly for an internship says just as much about you as your work. The proper outfit lets your boss or supervisor know you are polished, professional and have a personality—three very important characteristics in a great intern.

This Fashionista’s look hits all three Ps and more. Her ankle length skirt is a great alternative to the traditional pencil skirt. Hitting at the ankle rather than a floor length maxi makes the skirt more polished and office appropriate. Plus, you can never go wrong with wearing a black skirt to the office. A skirt like this Fashionista’s is universally flattering and always appropriate. Polished and professional? Check and check.

But don’t forget to still show a little personality when dressing for your internship. This Fashionista’s sweater is the perfect choice for the office. The pattern is exciting and interesting without being over the top. The jewel tone color palette isn’t overwhelming or overly loud either. Plus, the silhouette is perfect for wearing a pattern. The crewneck and long sleeves of this Fashionista’s sweatshirt let the pattern be the focal point while remaining covered up.

Finish off the look with a black leather carryall, black boots and your supervisor’s coffee order and you are sure to make a positive impression at the office in more ways than one.

One Simple Change: Swap out the longer length skirt for a leather skater skirt for a great casual date night look.
