WHAT TO WEAR: Internship

July 15th, 2015 at 2:00am

As you put on a suit for the first time, about to embark on our first serious internship, it can be extremely nerve-racking. You are desperate to make a good impression. You want to look smart, sophisticated and hide the fact that you have absolutely no idea what you are doing. With this much pressure on an outfit it can seem hard to integrate the most important aspect into your look: your personal style.

With a few simple tricks, this Fashionisto shows us how to take a plain suit and transform it into your own unique look. He starts with the basics: A white button-down and navy pants take care of the smart and sophisticated aspects he wishes to fulfill, as they are a timeless and powerful combination. With the major parts of his outfit being used to be professional, he is left with only his accessories to diversify his outfit. He adds a navy and red plaid tie which adds a pop of color to the otherwise plain fabrics he features. The pattern adds a certain fun and youthful aspect to a very mature look. He also uses a chestnut belt and shoes to warm up the outfit. This color is much more eye-catching than a typical black. He adds a trendy rose gold watch to complete his look. This stands out dramatically as being extra chic among a sea of classic silver accessories often donned in an office setting. When heading out for his lunch break, this Fashionisto is always sure to grab his aviator sunglasses as a final addition to his outfit.

One Simple Change: If you have completed an internship and are in the market for another job opportunity, it is time to begin interviewing! Add a jacket to this look to make it more professional. Follow the advice of career services and remove your watch and you are dressed to impress.
