WHAT TO WEAR: Internship

Internships provide the best opportunities for a college student to seek out an experience. From creating connections to being exposed to various industries, it’s all very exciting and an amazing time. However, it truly challenges the wardrobe of a college student. Nothing causes as much anxiety as picking out your first day outfit the night before. That’s why I love this Fashionista’s simple high-low dress. It’s ideal for summer and for an easy day at the office.

High-low skirts and dresses made a huge splash almost two years ago, and while they may not be as prevalent, I feel they are still just as chic as ever. The unique hem adds a nice surprise to your look and keeps it different. This Fashionista’s dress is as comfortable as a long T-shirt dress, which is why it’s perfect for a dressed down Friday at work. The neutral color is the ideal backdrop for statement making accessories.

This Fashionista’s necklace adds nice hints of color to an otherwise neutral themed look. It’s eye-catching and unique (this Fashionista picked this special necklace up in Spain!). Adding memorable and colorful pieces to your look helps to make your look even more individual. I also am in love with this Fashionista’s studded gladiator sandals. They add an air of punk and boldness to an otherwise simple look. The black color is also perfect for matching with almost anything in your closet, which is a golden solution to every intern’s style dilemma. When it comes to interning, dress comfortably and be yourself. Your inner style will naturally shine through.

One Simple Change: Heading out for drinks with coworkers? You can easily transition this workday outfit to nighttime attire. Throw on a denim jacket and switch out the sandals for a pair of wedges. This will make it still ideal for summer, but more appropriate for the occasion.
