WHAT TO WEAR: Internship

What comes to mind when you hear the word summer? For some, summer means lounging by the pool and eating endless amounts of BBQ and snow cones. On the other hand, summer is a chance for students to get their foot in the door of the industry they wish to pursue. Whether you’re interning at a world-renowned fashion company in New York City or a startup in Silicon Valley, every Fashionista/o strives to be dressed to the nines during their summer internship.

Interning in New York City, rarely do you come across two stylish individuals that are even slightly alike. I spotted this Fashionista strolling through Bryant Park on her walk home from Elie Tahari, sporting her own take on business casual. With the preppy style being a classic look sported by many, this Fashionista effortlessly distinguishes her look by adding unique touches to show off her stylish personality. She pairs her crossover wrap skirt with one of J.Crew’s favorites, the boy shirt in end-on-end cotton. She makes a statement with her metallic loafer, which gives the outfit the perfect amount of edge. This Fashionista keeps her jewelry minimal by layering two dainty silver necklaces and tying it all together with her everyday Michael Kors gold and silver watch. Overall, this Fashionista has nailed intern style and is ready to take on anything that’s thrown her way.

One Simple Change: After a long week filled with Excel trend reports and making coffee runs, it’s finally Friday and the perfect time to grab drinks with your girlfriends! Wondering how you can quickly transform your office attire? Swap the skirt for a skinny jean and throw on an open toe platform mule and you’re ready for a girl’s night out.
