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.
If you're an intern in a creative industry, like fashion or music, you have the liberty to dress a little trendier and a little more you. This printed long-sleeve dress is perfect for what the job calls for. The art deco print paired with the bold patent leather belt suggest your fashion savviness, while the length of the dress is appropriate for a working environment.
Nothing says corporate like a classic black blazer. For those of you interning in a corporate environment, like a law firm or investment bank, keep your outfit sleek and clean with a blazer, but don't shy away from adding a simple print to your otherwise plain ensemble. The horizontal striped skirt is the perfect balance between professional and chic. If you want to take it one step farther, you can choose a heel that has a little flair, like these velvet bow pumps. Just make sure to wear a heel that's not too high!
