WHAT TO WEAR: Internship

At the end of a school year there is nothing college students want more than to take their minds off homework and head to the beach or fly off to an exotic place with their best pals. Though there is nothing wrong with relaxing your way through summer (I wish I could have!), this is also the perfect time to give your CV an upgrade and get some work experience before real life hits you!

An internship is the perfect opportunity to immerse yourself in the industry you want to take a part of after graduating and get your name out there. You’ll learn about likes and dislikes, what you’re good at and most importantly what you can improve on. Interns aren’t exactly known for standing at the top of the work life food chain, yet there’s no reason they shouldn’t dress the part.

Every work place has a dress code, and your outfits should always be planned accordingly. This Fashionista for instance, works at a more casual environment. She doesn’t need to wear a pencil skirt and stilettos, but she always stays stylish and work appropriate.

Since budgets aren’t always as shopping friendly as most compulsive shoppers like myself would like them to be, basic items are essential to avoid repeating the same outfit over and over again. This fashionable gal wore a light jacket over a tucked in white T-shirt and a pair of skinny black jeans. Three basics that you could possibly mix and match a million times! As a statement piece she chose her funky leopard print slip-ons and silver accessories.

One Simple Change: Have a date after work? Switch it up by stepping into your favorite sandals and a black top. Loose the jacket if you feel like showing a little more skin, and enjoy your night!
