A Look Inside an Intern's Closet: Must-Haves

Hey cupcakes! As many of you already know, I am currently interning for the summer. I thought it would be fun to share the absolute essentials for any intern to have in their closet, as I did a bunch of research before my start date to ensure I had the right items in my wardrobe. Let's jump right into it!

Tops:
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!

Bottoms:
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!

Suits:
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!

Shoes:
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.

Love,

  1. love it! My trick would be buying all clothes in neutral colors and then adding some scarves or jewelry in colors. but ultimately you can't go wrong with black and white :)
