3 Internship Outfits for the Laid-Back Office

3 Internship Outfits for the Laid-Back Office

It’s officially summer, or for those of us in college, internship season. Scoring a great summer internship can lead to countless opportunities, and possibly even help secure you a job straight out of school! That being said, for an internship it’s important to make sure you dress to impress.

A growing number of companies have begun incorporating more “lax” looks around the office, and I’m all for the change. There are lots of ways to keep dress casual while still making a statement. Here are three on-trend outfits that will be the perfect addition to your work wardrobe!

1. Sleek in Stripes

For this outfit, I took a simple black cropped tee and paired it with a black-and-white striped pair of wide-legged pants. I then tied the look together with a black leather purse, sandals, and jacket draped over my shoulders. This look practically screams sophistication while still leaning more towards the casual side.

2. Parisian Chic

In this next outfit, I decided to stick with the black-and-white theme. For my top, I chose a long-sleeved, black-and-white striped top featuring a high neckline. I worked it with a simple pair of distressed denim jeans. I (again) tied the look together with my trusty leather jacket and handbag, finishing it off with my favorite pair of white sneakers (…which make long treks around the city all the more bearable).

3. Radiant Ruffles

My final (and favorite!) outfit features a simple-yet-beautiful white button-up blouse with an off-the-shoulder ruffle around the chest. Although it can be worn loose, I decided to tuck it into my distressed jeans. I played up the casual jeans by wearing a rose pink kitten-toed heel and finished the look off with an oversize tan bag and black aviator sunnies.
