As the temperature rises, Fashionistas begin pulling sundresses and shorts from the back of their closets. When considering internships, work and interviews the line between temperature appropriate and office appropriate can become blurry. This Fashionista knew exactly how to walk the tightrope, making the perfect multifunctional outfit.
A young and professional outfit is created through balance. This Fashionista’s bright colored button-up creates a friendly atmosphere while maintaining a professional neckline. Her gladiator-inspired lace up sandals are casual but make a statement. These shoes work well with a busy life-style because they can be dressed-up or down while staying comfortable.
The piece pulling together this Fashionista’s entire outfit and making it wearable for work and class are her high-waisted shorts. The shorts are obviously fashionable, but also functional. Their length is appropriate for the office, but not too long where they seem uncomfortable. The belted waist shows off this Fashionista’s fabulous physique while not being too showy. The large pockets will be useful in the office or on campus for a cell phone or to-do list. The shorts are also made of fabric that resembles heather-colored dress pants. Details also give these shorts a dressier feel: pleating at the top, a cuff at the bottom and front pleats complete the professional air.
Hint: To find your perfect multi-functional outfit, find one key piece that fits for work and fun. This Fashionista found her shorts at Urban Outfitters, try these similar shorts that are color-blocked from Urban. If you want to try something different, opt for a blazer that looks great with dresses, jeans or shorts. Don’t let color limit you either! Stand out at your internship with a pop of red.
