WHAT TO WEAR: Internship

July 13th, 2015 at 2:00am

An important summer milestone for all college students that stands prestigious and tall is a summer internship. Waking up at 6:00 a.m., commuting into the big city and running errands around the office just seems like something we’ll all have to do at one point or another. Nevertheless, it’s important to stay true to yourself when groggily dressing in the mornings. Start your day the right way by dressing for the occasion, and be office-ready in a simple working girl ensemble! It’s fast and easy.

This Fashionista keeps it simple, yet sleek and stylish just in time to catch her 7:07 a.m. train. She wears comfortable tight black slacks—definitely a simple staple in ever working girl’s wardrobe.  She wears them with an eyelet summer top as well as layers it with a light blazer to further dress up the ensemble. She opts for a more unconventional statement flat rather than a standard black ballet shoe to really make her outfit pop and stay youthful (a concept that sometimes gets lost with corporate apparel). She finishes with a sturdy tote to hold her laptop and other tech needs that she’ll have to bring to the job. She also wears her fun summer shades, because as always, you’ve got to stay true to personal style and just have some fun when walking through the New York City avenues!

One Simple Change: Going to meet the girls for dinner after work? Swap the flats for something more comfortable and change your slacks into jeans. It’s a no-brainer—you’ll be comfortable and look totally sophisticated!
