If you’ve been keeping up with my previous blogs, then you know we’ve discussed what you should wear to work. I thought it would be helpful to give you all a visual representation of what to wear. If you’re able to dress casually at work then this post is perfect for you. I know a lot of people who feel more comfortable wearing jeans to class than a dress or dress pants. Somedays you can go to class and then go straight to work and you don’t have time to go home and change. This infographic shows what is comfortable and accepting to wear to class and work for both men and women.
Men: jeans are always a go to. They match with everything. For a top, you can wear a sweater or a pullover. If you don’t want to wear this to class then you can wear a t-shirt to class and before you go to work put the sweater or pullover on. When it comes to shoe’s sneakers are fine as long as they are clean. You don’t want to be going into meetings wearing dirty sneakers. No one would think that you are professional. A nicer dress shoe is fine too. What to Wear and How to Wear it shows different outfits for men that they can wear to work. This is a great source because it not only gives casual outfits but also professional outfits.
Women: just like I said for men, jeans are fine. Women have a lot more options when it comes to dressing casually. For a top, you can wear a sweater, a nice shirt with or without a cardigan, or just a long sleeve shirt. As for shoes, you can wear flats, boots, or booties. If you wanted to dress it up a little you can add bracelets, necklaces, and earrings.
These aren’t the only options. Business Attire for a Casual Workplace lists pictures with descriptions for outfits that are appropriate for class and your internship.
