WHAT TO WEAR: Internship

Many of you may be starting a new internship on campus this semester, and while the weather outside may be frightful, let the thought of bold colors warm you up this winter and keep you stylish for your campus internships. Contrasting bold colors and prints like stripes and jewel tones like this Fashionista will make any outfit pop, while still remaining cute and professional.

Some internships are business causal, and this Fashionista shows just how chic and simple the style can be. You always want to appear professional since you’ll never know who you’ll come in contact with on the internship, but you still be want to be comfortable. Simple makeup is always a go-to for a day on the job. Plus you can never go wrong with cardigans, chiffon tops or cute flats.

This Fashionista created the perfect balance with a few of these elements for a work-appropriate and fashion-forward look. The warm colors in contrast with the teal shirt and fuchsia shoes make the outfit stand out. The cuffed sleeves add an unexpected pop of color, while the stripes and pearl bracelet add sophistication and class. The dark denim wide-leg pants dress up the outfit by making it more professional. Also, the layering of the cardigan adds to this internship ready look.

Wide-leg pants are all over the fashion scene for the spring/summer season. Designers such as Diane von Furstenberg and Carolina Herrera  featured these pants in their spring 2015 collections. You can easily rock this style in the winter by adding a printed sweater, or be spring and summer ready with a cute crop top.

One Simple Change: To take this outfit from day to night, simply remove the cardigan and add a statement necklace for a night out with friends.
