WHAT TO WEAR: Internship

Summer comes with unforgettable vacations, endless nights out with friends and the typical season-long internship where the lessons from the classroom meet the real world. Internships give students a glimpse into what working in their prospective fields is like, as well as provide opportunities to network with respected professionals. This makes it crucial to make a good impression while interning because even though it does not seem like it, you are being evaluated at all times. However, as Fashionistas/os, appearance is something that we do not have to worry about because it is second nature to look our best and to dress appropriately. But what do you do when the environment of your internship is more casual than professional and you still want to make a statement with your outfit? Well, this Fashionista has a good idea of what to do.

This Fashionista is rocking a light wash denim button-down shirt with a daring red skirt. The button-down shirt is casual but when it is paired with the skirt and her nude flats, it still looks professional enough for a day at an internship. The light fabrics are also perfect for the hot weather as they do not trap heat and the colors, complemented with the gold necklace and bracelet, scream summer. The functionality of this outfit makes the countless coffee runs all the more bearable.

One Simple Change: Working late at your internship again? Take this outfit from internship-ready to runway-ready for a girl’s night out by replacing the skirt with a pair of dark wash skinny jeans. Just make sure to limit yourself to only two different washes when going for the denim on denim look.
