As an intern myself, I know the difficulties an intern can go through when trying to pick an outfit out for work. Is this too casual? Is this appropriate? Should I dress for the job I want someday? Those are just a few of the thoughts that run through my head when I get dressed in the morning. With that being said, it is definitely necessary to dress the part, but you also want to be comfortable for all of the errands and coffee runs you are inevitably bound to go on.
This Fashionista got it right. While you want to stand out in the crowd of other interns, you don’t want to stand out too much. Interns, take advice from this Fashionista. She nailed the appropriate look on the head.
Firstly, this Fashionista wore an all-black, monochrome ensemble. Black is one of my favorite colors and is a key color in my wardrobe. The little black dress is a perfect, work-appropriate option. The LBD is a staple wardrobe piece in any season. Throughout your summer internship, you can wear it multiple times without looking like an outfit repeater by piling on different fun accessories.
Instead of this Fashionista’s black outfit looking lack luster and boring, she looked anything but due to her trendy accessories. In this instance, black and blue look great together. Her teal statement necklace gives a needed pop of color to her otherwise monochrome get up. A bright-colored necklace is far from boring. Therefore, it exudes a fun aura without outwardly and obnoxiously doing so.
Her added accessories such as her floral coin purse and black and gold embellished sandals are other crucial pieces to her perfect internship outfit. For instance, a coin purse is just the right size to fit money and a phone for lunch breaks and errands. The flower design is also a great nod to the summer season. Her flat sandals are seemingly comfortable enough to run around a city while minimizing painful blisters. They are also an opportunity to show off a fun, bright pedicure.
Interns, take note! When in doubt, wear a LBD.
