Every city holds several different types of work environments and stereotypes, NYC being one of them. New York City is a place filled with hustle, bustle, and muscle. If you choose to take an internship in this wonderful city, be prepared for a wild ride filled with valuable experience, long hours and tough love. Of course, not all internships in this city fit into that stereotype, but it doesn’t hurt to be prepared.
One important fact about interning in New York City is that you need to dress the part. I don’t necessarily mean a rigid pencil suit, but rather something that shows youth (encompassing excitement, passion, flexibility and a bit of naiveté) and professionalism all in one. There are many different outfit combinations that can be created including the one above. Less is more in terms of accessories. The rule for shoes remains the same in this city as it does for any: If your feet hurt in your footwear after an hour do not wear them. A classic blazer with a broach is always a cute touch along with the combination of navy and faded vintage brown. I couldn’t help but add these shoes, how could you not feel confident walking in these weapons!
