WHAT TO WEAR: Internship

April 29th, 2016 at 2:10am

Internships are one of the best ways to gain experience as a college student. They provide practical knowledge that one can apply to future job applications. But with internships comes the problem of what to wear. Internships are the place to look professional, but to also incorporate one’s personal style.

This Fashionista chose to stick to a neutral color tone, which allowed the floral pattern of the dress and accessories to take center stage. Her dress incorporated long sleeves as well, which kept the look modest for an internship. Since the weather in Chicago has been a little unpredictable lately, the long sleeves work nicely for the transition period between winter and spring.

The gray tights complemented the muted tones of the floral elements of the dress, while breaking up the black base color of both the dress and the booties. To bring out the blue tones of the dress, this Fashionista chose to carry a light blue cross-body bag. The slim design of the bag complemented the easygoing outfit, while hinting at the lighter colors of spring fashion. To finish off the look, this Fashionista chose a delicate necklace, which added a nice touch of shine.

This Fashionista shows that internship style can be both comfortable and professional at the same time. A tip to remember is to make a neutral color the base of the outfit, and then incorporate small doses of color and patterns.

One Simple Change: Going from day to night? Throw on your favorite leather jacket to keep you warm all night long.
