Your résumé is in tip-top shape, your applications are in, and you've even lined up a couple of interviews. Go you! Your dream job is so close to being a reality this summer. And, sure, landing the internship to end all internships feels can feel like a make-or-break situation. But, instead of stressing about everything that can go wrong, prepare for the factors you can control. Like dressing for the position you want — that's a tried-and-true statement we agree with wholeheartedly.
After all, first impressions are your chance to let your personality shine. So, why not let your outfit reflect it, too?

Like shoes you'll want to be buried in because they're so chic, the ultimate spring trench, and a colorful (but totally office-appropriate) skirt that'll fuel some friendly conversation with your interviewer. We guarantee: You'll feel like a total boss.
