WHAT TO WEAR: Internship

You’ve finally landed the job, so what’s next? What to wear. Summer can be a tricky season for finding appropriate work attire, so here are some do’s and don’ts for your new professional summer look.

I spotted this Fashionista leaving work and knew she had the right idea. She started her look off with a cool, printed blouse. Cotton can be dressed up or down and is breezy for summer heat. Don’t feel like dress pants? Not to worry! These tan stretch pants are more appropriate than leggings for the office, and add comfort. She keeps her look simple and fresh with these bright white accessories. A bold statement necklace and watch are a modern swap for heavy metals. Now, let’s talk about that bag. A large leather tote is perfect for summer for so many reasons. It’s versatile, professional and large enough to store a laptop. Get this, it’s even reversible! The inside is a lovely forest green, making for a chic second look. She adds a pair of matching leather flats, a plus for all day comfort. Early mornings are rough, and who wants to bother with a flat iron? This Fashionista put her hair in a quick and easy dutch braid from one ear to the other. I’ve tried this look myself, having shorter hair and it works for all hair types!

One Simple Change: Running from the office to a girl’s night out? Take off the the flats and add some leather wedges. They’re easy to dance in and forgiving the next morning.
