Looking the part is half the battle, and first impressions are everything. We’ve all heard something along those lines before. Whether it’s for a meeting, an interview or in this case, an internship, dressing for success is essential. Well, this Fashionisto is surely dressed to impress. With this look, he’s ready to show his colleagues that he simply means business.

Internships are a fundamental and crucial step in securing the one thing every student is eventually aiming for: a job. That’s right—a real job in the real world. Don’t let the future scare you, though! With your education, skills and positive mentality, you’re ready to take that next step. All that’s left is the perfect professional look and the future is YOURS for the taking.

Just use this Fashionisto’s look as a basic guide for your internship ensemble! His black dress pants and gray suit coat make up the foundation of this look, while his light pink dress shirt underneath adds a little extra pop. The matching leather belt and shoes work to tie the entire outfit together, creating an overall polished feel. Whether you are a Fashionisto or Fashionista dressing for success, choose the staple items you want to include in your look and work around those. Don’t be afraid to get a little creative and let your personality shine through; however, keep your work environment in mind and always remember the key to this look is professionalism!

One Simple Change: Done at the office for the day? Simply ditch the jacket and you’re ready to take on the night! Roll up the sleeves on your dress shirt and almost instantly you’ve created a more relaxed, breathable look that will allow you to let loose while still looking sharp.
