Now that summer is coming to an end, school is around the corner and it’s time to snag that dream fall internship! You know what that also means? Fall colors!
These days, especially in the hip town of Austin, Texas, “business casual” is a standard. Suits are out and a comfortable, mix-matched office attire is in. You have to be able to get your work done by 5:00 p.m. so you can have a ping-pong tournament with your coworkers at 6:00 p.m. and grab a pizza and beer with your boss at 7:00 p.m.
This Fashionisto gets it right with the casual dress shoes, the corduroy pants, the classic white button-up shirt, and even a jacket if it’s extra high profile. And whoever said black and brown don’t go together? Nowadays you can mix practically anything, whether it’s clashing colors, crazy patterns, or silver and gold accessories. You leave the blazer on if you’re going in for an interview, or you can take it off for the more laid-back social media internship you get.
And remember to put on that class ring when you’re going in for an interview! Whether you’re meeting the boss for the first time or networking with your peers at a mixer, you want to show off your school pride and make sure everyone knows you’re working on that degree! It’ll put you one step ahead of everyone else. And a bonus—maybe it’ll catch the eye of an alumni who has connections with the next big start-up company, and they happen to be looking for interns!
It’s always good to keep a variety of business attire in your closet. It’s important to be flexible depending on your next job or internship. And don’t forget to add a little bit of your own personality! This Fashionisto adds a touch of his personal taste and sentimentality with his loose bracelets.
One Simple Change: Need this look to go from Day to Night because you have a hot Date Night after work? Change the pants! Opting for some slick black jeans with that white button-up will give you the “cool guy” look to impress your date.
