You perfected your resume, finalized your cover letter and killed the interview; you’ve landed the internship of your dreams. You spend the short two-week break between your last final and the beginning of your internship getting everything in order; Mom and Dad couldn’t be more proud. You think you’ve got it all figured out, when you come to realize that you have no idea what to wear.
Dressing for an internship can be stressful. You have to look professional while maintaining a college student’s style and budget. As your start date draws closer, you consider giving up and going scrounging through Mom’s closet, but this is no time to sell yourself short. This Fashionista, who looks likes she just stepped out of a Marie Claire magazine spread, isn’t letting the stress of dressing business causal bring her down.
Dressed in a simple Monteau dress, this Fashionista is bringing editorial style straight from Europe to UIUC at a reasonable cost. The simple princess-style pearl necklace and diamond earrings scream sophistication. Accessories are the best way to dress up or down any simple dress. A great addition to this business casual ensemble is the brown leather wristwatch, which is perfect for toning down an otherwise business professional look. Topping everything off, the nude pointed toe heals give the outfit that perfect finishing touch without taking away from the pleather neckline and stripes.
One Simple Change: Thinking about having a girl’s night out after a long day at the office? Whether its out to dinner or out for drinks, try switching from formal footwear and pearls to a high heal ankle bootie and an opera length necklace for a more casual look.
