WHAT TO WEAR: Internship

It can be nerve-wracking deciding what to wear on the first day of your internship. Internships are your first taste of what the real world is like, and unlike previous jobs, you probably aren’t provided a uniform. You want to impress your new coworkers and show them that you aren’t just a college student, but a possible future employee. You may think that you have to look super professional and boring for your summer internship, but that is not the case. There are plenty of ways to look put together without losing your personality and sense of style. The best way to do this is by mixing unique printed pieces with more traditional business wear, such as a blazer or a nice pair of slacks. This shows that you aren’t strictly business and that you have a fun side to you.

This Fashionista hit the nail on the head with her look. She chose to wear a black and cream patterned blouse with classic black pants. Her black pumps add a bit of pizzazz by having a ruffle effect on the toes. The dangly earrings she chose to wear add just the right amount of sparkle to her outfit. Her ensemble has the perfect amount of professionalism without becoming boring and mundane.

One Simple Change: If you plan on heading out with your coworkers after a long day at the office, this look is easy to transform from day to night. All you need to do is switch out the black pants for a pair of skintight black jeans, and you are ready to enjoy a night out!
