Two neutral blouses - Having white, black, or gray blouses are perfect for an intern because they can be paired with basically anything.
Two colored blouses - If you have a lot of black or navy bottoms, having a colorful blouse adds a trendy pop of color so you will still be in style :)
One long sleeve blouse - Even though it is the summer, offices can get pretty chilly when the AC is on. This enables you to also not wear a cardigan/blazer every day.
Two cardigans (varying colors) - Wearing a cardigan over a blouse is one of my go-to oufits on a rainy/colder day. Plus, I have a bunch of tank top blouses that I can wear if a cardigan covers me up (stay professional y'all!)
One blazer - I have found that having one black blazer is all I really need, but you can purchase two or three if you like to wear them!
One or two pencil skirts - I personally wear skirts most days because I'm not the biggest fan of dress pants, so having some pencil skirts in different colors (I suggest black and a color) is a must!
Two pairs of dress pants (varying colors) - That being said, it is still important to have some dress pants in your intern closet.... Black and gray are my favs!
One pair of nice jeans - My office lets me wear dark wash jeans on Friday, so a unripped dark denim is essential!
One complete suit set - I think this is just great to have in general... So definitely find a complete suit to invest some money in!
One pair of black flats - Most of my bottoms are black, so I wear my black flats 75% of the time :P
One pair of nude flats - If you don't want to buy a bunch of flats to work with all your clothes, I suggest nude ones. Less of a monetary burden and still super cute!
One pair of heels - I'm a flats girl, but it is still important to have a pair of heels around in case of a presentation/important event.
