You got an internship! Proud of you, babe. Now the REAL struggle begins — WHAT TO WEAR.
Summer internships are funny because, despite the wicked-high temperatures and gross levels of humidity, wearing cut-off jeans and a crop top just doesn’t cut it.
But ‘office appropriate’ doesn’t have to mean ‘boring’. investing in a few good pieces will go a long way, from a breathable pair of culottes, to a flowy midi skirt to a good ole’ white button town or tee. By pairing a graphic tee with pair of fabric pants, or a button down with a pair of jeans, you’ll find that your closet has a lot more longevity than you might have previously believed.
The key to internship dressing is to both be professional and fun. For instance, depending on your office culture, denim may be allowed. If it is, I love pairing light or mid-wash denim with a pinstripe button-down or a funky slogan tee. For the latter, I believe adding necklaces, belts, or other accessories will take the outfit from hanging-out-with-your-friends to hanging-out-with your-boss.

Go kill it, you wonderfully hardworking millennials!
