WHAT TO WEAR: Internship

September 28th, 2016 at 2:00am

With the start of school comes the beginning of your fall internship. There are many new and exciting things to look forward to when starting work in a new environment. You get to escape your college campus and classes, opening yourself up to the world of adulthood. Internships are meant to help you grow and learn, which is exactly what you should be doing rather than stressing over the company dress code.

Dressing for an internship can be tricky, especially when the dress code is not exactly clear. I actually think it is easier to have a corporate job where you wear button-ups and blazers to work every day. You know exactly how you are supposed to dress when you show up each morning. This article is more so dedicated to the ladies who aren’t working a corporate job, but still want to portray professionalism.

I always recommend opting for a shirt in a silk or chiffon material. You can wear any style of shirt in this fabric and look put together. Opt for a bottom in this material as well for an airy and casual, yet sophisticated pair. Material is key when dressing casually. If you show up in fleece pants you will look like the bum of the office.

I love how this Fashionista opted for the classic black and whites. The white on white is as polished as one can be while still maintaining comfort. One rule I swear by: neutrals are the best way to stand out in a positive way.
