WHAT TO WEAR: Interview

What to Wear

After spring break, the weeks always seem to fly by when you’re back at school. There is so much that happens between coming back from spring break and the start of summer, that it becomes very easy to lose track of time. With that being said, it is around this time in the semester that Fashionistas and Fashionistos everywhere start hearing back from the internships that they applied to over winter break.

The next step in applying to an internship is the INTERVIEW process. With global competition, there are many things that Fashionistas and Fashionistos need to do to ensure that they stand out to their interviewer, and one of them is dress impeccably well.

This Fashionista caught my eye as I passed her on the way to class. She obviously stood out amongst the other students who were dressed in gym clothes and oversized sweaters. I was positive that she was going to stand out amongst whoever her competition was as well.

Her black pencil skirt is a staple item in any Fashionista’s outfit. Paired with a black fitted suit jacket, this Fashionista looked very chic. In matching her shoes and stockings to the black theme, this Fashionista knew she needed something to help make her stand out (other than her fabulous resume). In order to do so, she used a pop color to help create contrast in her outfit. Her pop color of choice was a red blouse, and she carried it through the rest of her outfit by wearing gold and red Alex and Ani bracelets. Her hair also was a focus of the outfit, and instead of wearing it straight as most Fashionistas do, she took the time to perfectly curl her hair and make it a focus of her outfit.

So as you start to hear back from all of the places you applied to this winter, keep in mind how this Fashionista dressed and you will be set for success.

One Simple Change: If this Fashionista were to swap out her pencil skirt and stockings for a dark-wash pair of jeans, she would be set for any in-class presentation that was headed her way.
