In honor of W's two newest interns--Gossip Girl's Blair Waldorf and Dan Humphrey--we asked Fashion Assistant Nora Milch to shed some light on the dos and don'ts of intern attire. To see how our newest additions fare in the fashion closet and for a peek at the W offices, check out the new episode on the CW tonight, 9/8c.
I think all fashion interns should dress to express their own individual style. With that said, there are definitely some better wardrobe choices than others. The key is to look chic and professional, without sacrificing comfort. Here are a few tips to help you look your best at work in W's (or any) fashion closet:
Of course, there are a couple things you should avoid:
- First, you want to be professional, but make sure to dress your age. For example, leave the pantsuit you bought for college interviews at home.
- Always try to look your best, but 6-inch YSL tributes are a big mistake given the amount of time you'll be running around the city.
- And finally, be comfortable, but no leggings or tights as pants please.
