Despite relaxing intentions, summertime quickly fills up with busy days and lots to do! Whether you’re running to grab coffee, shopping for party decor or meeting a mentor for lunch, a comfortable but chic outfit is in order. This Fashionista has the perfect, simple formula for turning classic black and white into a polished go-to look!

This Fashionista absolutely knocks two trends out of the park. Her crisp white Birkenstocks and jogger pants take casual favorites and give them a modern twist. Popular for many months, the sandals add a European flair to any light outfit. These can be paired with a floral dress, skinny jeans or a romper! Additionally, the black pants are super flattering, and the pocket zippers add some sophisticated shine! They’re a perfect investment piece for running around during any season. Dress the pants up with sweaters and scarves, or simply wear a tank top and sneakers. They’re comfy but still flattering with the tapered bottoms.

As for a top, this Fashionista’s lace selection takes classic T-shirts to a whole new level! Easy enough to pair with anything while staying cool, the texture adds intricate detailing and would look great layered. The length of the sleeves also makes it possible for the top to be a great professional piece.

One Simple Change: Wearing this look as a comfortable, casual internship choice could totally be successful! Swap the Birkenstocks for some leather wedges, then add a blazer over the top. Layer with a colorful multi-strand necklace, and you’re sure to make a killer yet cozy impression!
