First Impressions

9 April 2008

I don’t think that it’s a secret at this point that I’m a college student. And like most college students, I’ve been frantically interviewing for summer internship positions. One of the problems of being a college student is that my budget and closet is limited. I don’t want to seem too stiff in a my one suit so how exactly should I go about making the right statement without sacrificing my professionalism?

If the office doesn’t require a suit, or at least a suit jacket I recommend going for the classic high waisted skirt.

Available at Bloomingdale’s, this Sutton Studio pencil skirt is $34.99 and also comes in red. While I wouldn’t advise wearing the red to the interview, the style of the skirt is still great. Pair it with a stunning belt, and by stunning I mean either a bright color or a great texture, and a tucked in white button down shirt and well… I’d hire you.

For interviews that might require a jacket, I recommend this Sutton Studio organza blouse. Underneath the right jacket, this blouse says I’m powerful but I’m also a woman. And with a price tag of $52.99, it also says I’m price-conscious but fashionable.

If you’ve looked at the first two options and realized that neither of those would fly for interviews in your particular industry than I think this BCBG Max Azria suit would probably be your best, and most fashionable, bet. It comes in a cool “gravel” color and I think my favorite part of this suit is that you can wear each piece separately for a casual look. I can see the jacket with a pair of dark skinny jeans and heels for a night out or the wide legged pants with a cute sweater for a lunch with friends. Keeping that in mind, the $238 investment for the jacket and $188 investment for the pants is a little easier to bear.

Happy Shopping!
