Although dressing for the office can be tricky, you don’t have to sacrifice fashion for professionalism. You can look wonderful this winter, even at your nine-to-five. Making your work outfits winter-friendly can be as simple as adding a scarf or wool coat, but there are also more dramatic ways to look polished in the workplace. Shopping online is a great way to find styles meant for winter at the click of a button; GoJane is a great online store for women with items appropriate for work.

1. Tobi.com – Tobi.com is a great online clothing store because there is something for everyone on this site. Their prices are great, and they are constantly running deals, which is great for college kids. Their clothing ranges from high fashion, to basic items for going to class. Another benefit to Tobi.com is when you purchase your first order, you get 50% off your entire order.
If your internship is in a casual environment like a home office or non-profit organization, think of the dress code as classy casual. In other words, don't start reaching for those t-shirts, ripped jeans or flip flops. You should always look as though you put some thought into your ensemble. The tie-neck blouse is a mix between feminine and professional. When you pair it with flared jeans the look becomes young, hip, and chic.
August is here, bringing in that late night heat. Everyone is less than excited to put on heavy globs of liquid foundation for a night on the town, just to sweat it off in the humidity. Not to mention with all the beach trips and internships we have going on, who has time to put together their best red carpet look for every night (or day) out. Here are some time saving makeup tips that wont melt off.
1. Instead of using a heavy liquid foundation, just use a little tinted moisturizer and bronzer.
