STYLE ADVICE: Professional Hours to Happy Hour

As a college student, I’m sure you’ve aced your professional look; whether it’s for interviews, internships, or your weekend job. I always find trouble in finding the perfect business casual outfit without veering too far from my typical look, but it’s important to make the outfit still represent what you stand for. This Fashionista always comes to work best dressed, leaving a statement in every room she’s present in, professionally and fashionably.

To give you a taste of her favorite look, she wore a retro polka dot navy and white dress, making the best of professional and fun. She tossed on a light wash denim jacket to make the outfit more casual and to warm herself up for when the sun went down. If you haven’t noticed, denim jackets are a true necessity to any wardrobe and can be worn with almost every single outfit. A staple to this Fashionista is her never ending option of shoes, this is her favorite way to express herself. She tossed on stylish and cozy wedges to complete her look.

While this outfit is perfect for making a point at your job interview or looking your best at your job or internship, it gives you the perfect chance to transition right into a Friday afternoon happy hour with the co-workers or even the simplest outfit for your weekly girls night out. To give it your own taste, try out a different funky pattern or throw on a pair of Vans or Converse instead of a wedge or heel. As always, don’t forget to mix in some fun jewelry and accessories to make this look as personable as you can.
