The Overall Revival

At this point in the summer, I’m sure everyone knows that overalls are taking off as one of the biggest trends yet. They have become a staple in a lot of summer wardrobes (including my own) and are a piece of clothing that is so versatile. They have the ability to be dressed up or down, which is something every Fashionista wants this summer.

So Why Overalls? Let Me Tell You: 

Pairing overalls with a casual T-shirt and trendy sneakers is the perfect outfit for getting coffee with friends, going shopping, or attending summer classes. The main thing about overalls that most trendsetters love is the comfort level. Something great about overalls is that they can also be dressed up with heels, which can be the perfect day to night outfit. They are perfect to wear over a bathing suit for all summer beach vacations. You can also pair them with fun jewelry.

Ever since overalls have made a comeback, they have made so many appearances on the most fashionable people in the entertainment and fashion industry. They are giving so many of us inspiration for planning all of our fabulous summer outfits and also future seasonal outfits to come. If you haven’t already, invest in a pair of overalls; you most definitely won’t regret it. Wearing them might seem risky if you have not worn them since you were a child, but they are coming back in full force and are the perfect summer piece.

Long or short, overalls are a piece of clothing you need to add to your wardrobe ASAP. They are a trend that is definitely going to prevail for a very long time. No matter what your style is, overalls work for everyone.

Internship Styling Tips From One Fashionista to Another

Well, it is finally summer, and you know what that means: internships on internships. Since most of us Fashionistas are in college, we’ll most likely be filing papers, making copies, and getting coffee for our superiors. But who says a summer internship can’t be fun? There are so many ways to enjoy your summer in the office and look good doing it.

Obviously, for the lucky ones who are interning in the fashion and beauty industry, there are endless meanings to “business casual,” and adding your individual touch is encouraged. But for those (like myself) who are working in a corporate business environment that has nothing to do with fashion or beauty, individuality is something that might be a little harder to express through your attire. There are so many ways all of us stylish gals who are working in a corporate office can shine above the rest and still be respected by the sometimes stuffy coworkers.

Some of my favorite pieces that I have incorporated into my summer internship wardrobe are short sleeve, trendy blouses, midi skirts, and fun flats. Pairing together an outfit with these pieces is something that has made mornings more enjoyable. Being able to individualize myself really helps boost my creativity throughout the day. Something to also keep in mind is that being bold isn’t a bad thing.

Here’s Some Advice: 

To be a little more specific, this white midi skirt screams summer, but also says, “I’m a professional working girl, and I’ve got it going on.” Adding a colored, loose blouse makes this look trendy and keeps you comfortable throughout your long workdays. And finally, shoes are the most important part of your outfit because these lace-up flats are where comfort meets fashion, and that is exactly what you need when walking around an office all day.

There are so many different ways to express your inner Fashionista in an appropriate way, no matter where you work. So stay original, work hard, and look fabulous this summer, ladies.
