Internship Outfits for Spring and Summer

Outfit 1:  Top //  Pants //  Flats //  Bangle
Outfit 2:  Shirt //  Pants //  Sandals //  Tote
Outfit 3: Ruffle Top ( similar) //  Skirt //  Flats

When I started my first internship around 4 years ago I found it very difficult to figure out what to wear. Many of the outfit ideas that I found Pinterest were outdated, too formal, or inappropriate for an office with a business casual dress code. After completing 5 internships, I've put together an office wardrobe that is professional, but also allows me to express my personal sense of style.

In the spring and summer, my "formula" for a work outfit consists of dress pants or a skirt with a blouse or button-up shirt. I like to buy pieces that I can easily mix and match, so I mainly stick to neutral colours like black, grey, white, and blue. For accessories, I wear pearl earrings every single day and sometimes a delicate necklace or bracelet. As for footwear, I stick to ballet flats or Jack Rogers Navajo if I'm wearing a skirt or dress. If do you want to wear heels, I would recommend something under 3 inches. Personally, I think anything over 4 inches is a bit much for the office, not to mention uncomfortable. For a bag, I use the Tory Burch York tote. It's a bit of a splurge, but I've gotten so much use out of it! Some of my favorite places to shop for work clothes are Banana Republic (during a 40% off sale), J. Crew, and J. Crew Factory. I also really like Aritzia for dress pants and blouses. 

What are your go-to pieces for work?

  1. This is a great post! When I first started Grad School/Clinic I had NO idea what to wear! It is so important to look put together, but to also be comfortable!
