Dress For Success: Where To Shop For Your Summer Internship

As our time in Oxford this year is sadly coming to an end, summer internships are quickly approaching. That means it's time to start shopping! Even though internship clothing has to be work-appropriate, they can still be trendy, so don’t be discouraged! Just remember that clothing for summer internships should accommodate for the weather, be modest, professional, and without a doubt stylish. We've compiled a list of stores that will surely help you achieve that business casual look in a chic manner.  
 
 
These stores have clothing that perfectly showcase how work apparel can be stylish. Their clothing is high quality and timeless. LOFT always has the chicest blazers, which are an essential for summer internships. Not only are blazers professional, but they also can complete any work outfit. J.Crew has summer dresses that function well for any day on the job. Just throw on a pair of cute heels that go with the dress and you are good to walk out the door and impress your boss. Banana Republic has cute bottoms and blouses that you can mix and match as well; absolutely perfect for maximizing your spending money. For a professional preppy look, these stores are the best retailers to check out. 
 
 
                    
For an affordable and stylish option, a good place to look is H&M. Their clothing has an edge, but still remains work-appropriate. H&M has basic pieces that are essential to complete an outfit, and while Banana Republic, J. Crew, and LOFT carry similar pieces, H&M puts a unique spin on basic apparel. Their blouses are so cute!
      
Department stores are always great places to check off your shopping list. They always have sales going on and a variety of brands and apparel creating a wide variety to chose from, guaranteeing that you can always find the right clothes for you. The best part about department stores is that if you need to buy shoes, make-up, or accessories for your internship you can find all of that in one place. Department stores carry the “must haves” for the season, such as that chic summer dress or patterned trousers.  BCBCMAXARIZA is carried at these departments and is always super trendy and on-point for internship wear!
