April 10th, 2015 at 2:10am

During your college years, you will quickly realize that experience is one of the most important things to have when you’re shooting for a goal in your life. One of the best ways to gain experience is having an internship. Internships are becoming a staple in every college student’s life lately, and they will most definitely help you to put your foot in the door for when you enter the real world on your own. However, internships can be stressful and intimidating, from the very first interview down to the late night coffee runs.

When people first get chosen for an internship, one of the first things that runs through their minds is, “What am I going to wear the first day?” It is always nerve-wracking to decide on an outfit when the environment that you’re going to is new to you. One piece of advice to always keep in mind when you are in this situation—be prepared. There are not many things worse than showing up somewhere feeling underdressed. The best thing you can do is dress to impress and hope for the best!

I spotted this Fashionista rocking the perfect outfit for an internship position. She based her outfit around her navy blue blazer, which gave off a sophisticated and professional look. She wore a plain white V-neck underneath the blazer, aiming for a simple touch. She paired this top with distressed boyfriend jeans. She cuffed these jeans up in order to show off her beautiful pearly heels. The heels added a classy touch to her overall outfit. To top off her entire ensemble, she threw on a mixture of both gold and silver Alex and Ani bracelets. These bracelets added a little sparkle to her look while still staying classy. In my opinion, pairing a blazer with a pair of jeans shows that you are prepared for any type of dress code.

Overall, I think that this Fashionista is most definitely ready to go to her internship with this outfit. She shows that she is youthful, intelligent and ready to work!

One Simple Change: Do you have an informal presentation in one of your classes? No problem! Switch out your heels for a classy pair of flats and throw on a sweater with a matching statement necklace instead of your blazer and you’re ready to go!
