WHAT TO WEAR: Internship

October 8th, 2015 at 2:07am

Want to boost your resume or job experience? Whether you’re a freshman, sophomore, junior or senior, attending the internship fair is definitely a way to get a head start with your future. With a resume ready and a positive attitude in place, the only thing missing is the perfect outfit.

Spotted on his way to the internship fair, this Fashionisto was dressed to impress. Rather than blending in with a crowd of white shirts and black suits, he decided to shake things up. He styled an outfit that has just the right pop of color and design to standout, while maintaining a crisp professional look.

Color balance is the key reason why this outfit stands out for the right reasons. The red, white and blue checked shirt adds a stylish flair, as it provides a simple design with vibrant colors that isn’t distracting to an otherwise plain shirt. Although it may be long sleeves, this shirt’s fabric is light and airy, making it a comfortable piece to wear during this transitional season.

Rather than sticking to the typical black or navy colored pants, this fashionisto wore teal-blue colored pants. Teal associating with summer and dark blue associating with winter, this mid-way teal-blue color truly reflects this transitional season seamlessly. Since it is a lively color, these pants help make the Fashionisto look more youthful and vivacious, which are two traits that employers are definitely on the lookout for.

In order to complement the vivid pair of pants, he decided to wear a pair of beige derby shoes. The derby shoes give off a unique “indie” vibe while maintaining a professional look. Known as one of the most popular fall tones, beige is the perfect color that keeps your look simple but stand out among the crowd. These are the perfect type of shoes to wear to both professional and casual outings, since it practically matches any outfit you can imagine.

Last but not least, a little accessorizing goes a long way. This Fashionisto accessorized his outfit with a classy watch and a classic brown leather belt. The watch not only allows him to be punctual, but it also adds a sophisticated touch to the overall look. On the other hand, the belt not only keeps his pants well adjusted, but it also helps define his waistline. This definition of the waistline helps give off a slimming effect to the Fashionisto’s body.

Now that you know what to wear, it’s time to apply for those internships, because you never know where that internship might lead you. Maybe the internship you land turns into your dream career; you will never know unless you try. So, I wish you nothing but the best!

One Simple Change: After you land your dream internship, it’s time to celebrate with a night out with your friends. By switching the checkered shirt for a plain or simple graphic T-shirt, you can change the professional tone to a casual one in an instant. Thus, you will still look stylish but in a more casual and comfortable manner.
