In this hectic moment of mid-terms, papers and presentations, the last thing I want to think about are internship applications. But that is all I have been spending time on these pass few days. My desire to gain an internship in the fashion industry in New York this summer has surpassed my stress over any kind of school work. I guess you can say I have a passion for fashion. Like any other die-hard fashion fan, when I’m applying for internships, I start planning out potential outfits that I could wear to the different creative offices to which I am applying. That’s why when I spotted this Fashionista, I was immediately inspired to write a how-to on what to wear to a creative internship.
If you are lucky enough to earn an internship in the creative industries, there is a lot less limitation on what you can wear on a daily basis at the office. Opt for pieces that highlight your originality like patterned skirts or graphic blouses. You can also take some inspiration from this Fashionista, who used layering in a perfectly stylish way. She paired a simple heather gray crewneck sweater with a peter pan collar top and polka-dot skirt that plays up the femininity of the collar. To finish the look, she chose a pair of simple black brogues. Choosing flats for an internship outfit is the perfect way to be both stylish and practical because you never know when you have to do a last minute coffee run!
One Simple Change: Going to an office outing after work? Swap the skirt for a pair of sleek black pants that will add an element of sophistication when you want to use the jovial atmosphere as a way to turn that internship into a full position!
