Whether you scored an internship in the Big Apple or another fashion capital, how you dress is important. Interning in a city gives you leeway to step outside your comfort zone and try something daring. However, it’s important you make sure it stays professional. The Fashionista pictured mixed sophistication and sass, giving her the perfect look for a summer internship.
If you find yourself in the city this summer, you’ve probably noticed the array of dark hues, so it’s easy to be weary of color. The street-style is mainly made up of a lot of black and navy, but don’t be afraid to add a pop of fun. This Fashionista chose a metallic, satin apricot-colored blouse to brighten up her look. To keep it clean and professional, she paired the fun top with a pair of slim black trousers. A pair of nice black pants should be a staple for any intern’s wardrobe. They’re sleek, conservative, and very functional all of which are important factors when choosing your outfit.
For her footwear, she kept functionality in mind yet again and chose a low-heel black patent leather bootie. Patent leather shoes are another versatile item and can easily go with any look. Their shine makes them pop against the black pant without being too over-the-top, and their low-heel makes them both wearable and fashionable.
Lastly, it’s important to be prepared for any weather, so a black leather jacket is a great addition. For a normal day in the office, a leather jacket is a great go-to and most likely an existing part of your wardrobe unlike a blazer.
Strut into your internship radiating confidence and style. Even if your outfit may consist mostly of blacks and basics, don’t be afraid to stand out with an occasional pop of color…even in the city. Show it off on social media and tag @CFashionista!
