I’m a t-shirt and jeans-loving college student with internships in journalism/PR and I can’t seem to figure out this whole professional-but-not-quite-corporate style, though! I hate looking overdone, but in a perfect world, I’d like some kind of trendy-yet-professional look, like Kimora Lee Simmons meets Lauren Conrad, or “Rihanna goes to the office”-type look. Any ideas? Thank you so much!
The “Rihanna goes to the office” idea you mentioned totally got me inspired!!! I think that look will be perfect for you. In PR you need to look good, its just the truth. The two looks I put together for you will have you looking good, fashion forward, while still being comfortable.
This first look is pretty basic. Its black skinnies, a simple shell, and a jacket. How easy is that? The black and white contrast will have you looking totally fresh. Add a statement necklace and some impressive shoes and you will be good to go.
For the second look, I took a trendier piece and paired it up with a colorful blazer. The jumpsuit is so comfortable but when paired with a crisp blazer, it takes on an office appropriate look. And of course, when you are showing off your shoes … make them show off worthy.
Enjoy your internship!
