Name: Ashley Petroso

Major: Fashion Merchandising

Year: Senior

CollegeFashionista: Did you find it stressful to dress for your internship?

Ashley Petroso: At first I was so stressed about having the perfect outfits and trendy accessories. I continued to question myself until I realized that there was no reason for that. I started to look through my closet and began to put outfits together. It became really fun for me to do that!

CF: What would you say is a key item that you think every working woman should have?

AP: I would say a black blazer. No matter what type of outfit you are wearing you can throw a blazer on to really pull it together and make it look professional. 

CF: Any fashion advice you would give young women entering the professional world?

AP: I would say, don’t question yourself. My other advice would be to wear flat shoes to work and change into your heels once arriving! It will save you, I promise!

How To: This Fashionista perfected the office attire! She looks so cute and trendy. Wearing a skirt and tights is a great alternative to the basic black pants look. Another great option is wearing a classic black dress like this one from Theory. You will get so much use out of this dress. You always want to add color to an outfit just like this Fashionista did. Adding a great blazer with a pop of color will give the black dress a completely different look. Add a great pair of tights on a colder winter day with your favorite pair of booties like this Fashionista did and your look like be complete!
