Internship Season: From Work to Werk

With the temperature rising and the sun shining, the season is definitely changing and we’re nearing a little known season that falls between Spring and Summer: Internship Season. We know how stressful getting dressed for work can be, and we’re here to help. Despite what you may think, there are ways to dress up your blazer and look like you’re going to werk, and not work. Here, we show you how we do it with one of our very own Mix chicks, Kiana:

Put a modern spin on a classic button-down by rocking one with a fun print, like this baby by our friends at Rails. Keep the look work-appropriate by pairing your blouse with a high waisted skater skirt and classic black pumps.

It’s after hours and you don’t have time to run home before going to happy hour? No problem! Unbutton your blouse a little bit to show some skin, and rock a leather jacket over your look to go from work to werk. Bonus tip: we love our girl’s easy beach waves, which can take her from day to night. Get the look by using a curling wand and some surf spray.

Working corporate may seem a little boring, but that doesn’t mean it has to look it. Look business-appropriate in a button-down blouse, but keep it cool by making it a sleeveless one. We love this striped number by Decker. Keep it classic by rocking black jeans or skinny trousers and throw on a blazer.

Make the look evening ready by knoting your shirt and showing some skin. Rock sky high pumps for some added height, and throw on a bright statement necklace to add some color to your monochromatic look.

Working in a fashion closet? We’ve got you covered, fashionista. Stay on trend by doing some serious color blocking with your work outfit. Our Decker Easy Livin’ pants are as comfortable as they are cool, and they come in colors that are bright, yet wearable. Tie your look together with strappy sandals and a statement necklace.

Hit the town straight from work without needing to change your outfit. Throw on a wide-brimmed fedora and a bright necklace with your color blocked outfit, and don’t forget sky high heels.

The only thing better than a LBD that you can wear to work and then wear to werk is pizza. Look business-appropriate by wearing a classic LBD underneath a printed blazer and throw on black pumps

Ditch the blazer in favor of a distressed denim jacket to take the look from day to night. Throw on sky high heels or strappy sandals to be ready for an outdoor happy hour.

Look like the office fashionista by trading out your classic black skirt for a bright summer white, like this one from Cheryl. Tuck in your favorite silky top to keep it professional, but stay fun by rocking a print. A classic black blazer keeps you business-professional. 

Go from workin’ girl to werkin’ girl with a simple change of shoes. Lose the pumps and throw on sky high platforms and ditch your blazer to show off your killer tan. Rock a silver collar necklace to keep it current, and add a bright lip if you’re feeling bold.
