Internships allow you to gain experience, skills and provide an opportunity for students to learn what it’s like to dress up for a job. For some people, dressing up is a chore that makes them groan when they look at their closet. However, for others, dressing up makes them feel more professional and serious about the work they’re doing. It also gives people a chance to go shopping for new professional clothing!
Some internships may require a more subdued appearance: no flashy colors, prints or styles. This doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your fashionable taste though! This Fashionista is a Communications and Marketing intern at a local law firm. Law firms are certainly more conservative than magazines, but she was still able to look young, pulled together and chic! When it comes to being conservative and you don’t want to look old, you want to focus on the fit and style of your clothing. Cropped pants, a fitted blazer and shoes that are a step up from basic can help you look smart and professional!
This awesome Fashionista rocked black head to toe in a fashionable way with her blouse, cropped pants and cool blazer. She even rolled the sleeves of her blazer to show off the striped interior that lined it! The blouse was simple and was tucked into her slim J.Crew black pants: a great alternative style of pants and still appropriate. Her black Sam Edelman kitten heels were strappy, had buckles and pointed toes; which made them much different from your basic black shoes. She wore a nude belt to draw attention to her waist and kept her jewelry to a minimum with diamond studs. Keeping her hair up in a neat bun not only looks classy, but it’s perfect for when it’s hot and you don’t want to style your hair. When in doubt always have sunglasses! She wore her Ray-Ban sunglasses that looked darling with her ballerina bun and earrings. Details like these can take your internship outfit from boring to stylish!
One Simple Change: If you’ve got a date night and don’t have much time to change, ditch the blazer, layer on bold bracelets and add a colorful clutch for some fun!
