Alright, so let's be honest: no one can survive in this Texas heat wearing a normal blazer/slacks combo for an internship. In the morning, you may look professional and put together, but come mid-afternoon, you will be sweating buckets. Since central Texas is headed for an especially hot, humid, sticky summer, Fashionistas here need to be prepared. How does a working girl pull off business casual without dying of heat stroke? The trick is to beat the heat by dressing up shorts and a short-sleeved shirt with a cute, miniature vest. This men's basic can do double duty for your business casual days and nights out. It will instantly turn any casual outfit into an outfit fit for the up-and-coming intern ready to take on the world.
I caught this Fashionista on her lunch break from interning at Elephant Productions film company. I just love how she matches her Express vest with her strappy Steve Madden sandals to turn her royal blue V-neck and Express sailor shorts into an internship-ready outfit. The sequin detail on the back makes this vest a great accessory to any outfit that needs to go from casual to professional in no time!
