WHAT TO WEAR: Interview

As college students, we are constantly trying to find ways to better our resumes, stand out and gain the experience we need to make it in the real world. Internships have become the perfect way to achieve all three of these. Interviews for these exciting opportunities can be nerve-racking, but choosing the right outfit can make all the difference. Looking polished and professional can give you the confidence to land that big internship.

This Fashionista was on her way to an interview for an on campus internship, and she definitely looked the part. Her classic navy pea coat is the perfect amount of fashionable and functional for the cool winter afternoon. These classic coats can be styled to work for countless occasions. She chose a striped Oxford button-down that perfectly pairs with her simple black slacks. For shoes, she opted for a comfortable, yet professional black patent ballet flat; the perfect shoe for walking across campus to an interview.

To top off her look, she added an abstract floral print scarf. Adding a scarf like this to a more professional and classic ensemble not only gives it a more modern feel, but also adds interest with the incorporation of more color and pattern. A simple accessory, like this watercolor scarf, can really amp up a professional ensemble, and make it more unique and tailored to the individual.

One Simple Change: This classic look is perfect for an internship interview, but with a simple change, this Fashionista could be on her way to a girl’s night out. Switch out the Oxford button-down for a more feminine white blouse or cami, and trade in the ballet flats for a pair of black leather boots.
