WHAT TO WEAR: Internship

Summer is a great time to apply what you’ve learned in college and gain even more skills with an internship. It might mean that you’ll be in the office for long periods of time, but that doesn’t mean you can’t look stylish. There are different ways to give a business casual look a small twist so it looks modern and eye-catching. Whether you add a pop of color to your outfit or you accessorize it, there is always a way to look chic at the office. It is true that black is the color that rules at the office, and it’s not surprising considering that it embodies elegance and goes well with everything. However, it’s never a bad idea to add other neutral colors to a black ensemble.

I really liked this Fashionista’s office look because it’s not just a plain black outfit you wear to the office. The contrast of her tan and black dress makes her stand out in a professional, classy way. It is an elegant dress, although it still makes her look young and relaxed. Additionally, the blazer is the perfect addition for any business attire. I loved that her flats are brown instead of black; it’s a great way to add a casual touch to her outfit and makes her look age-appropriate. Looking professional can sometimes be tough because you run the risk of looking much older than you are, or as if you’re attending a funeral since all you’re wearing is black. It’s important to understand what the environment at the office is, so you figure out what you should and should not do in terms of fashion.

One Simple Change: Going out for the night after a long day at the office? Just lose the blazer and switch the flats for a pair of heels, and you’ll be set for a girl’s night!
