Scoring an interview to your dream internship always comes with a rollercoaster of emotions. You're crazy excited because you've at least made it to your dream company's shortlist, but nervous at the same time because you're wondering how you can wow the interviewer with your skills and awesome personality. While your talents and your charm will play a huge role in getting your dream internship, what you wear is equally important because your OOTD will help build the interviewer's first impression of you.

To make sure that you stand out in style, we're listing down outfit ideas you can rock to your internship interview—from trendy to sleek, but still one hundred percent polished and stylish.

Instead of going in an all-black OOTD, opt for a fresh white monochromatic outfit instead. Wear a flowy tank with a pair of dressy gaucho pants, and tie a vibrant neckerchief around your neck for a quick color boost. Don't forget your blazer to seal the deal.


You can still take the traditional route and wear a long-sleeved top and a pair of trousers, but ditch the usual black and white interview look. Opt for blue hues for a still formal, but trendier outfit instead.

Whoever said that you can't wear a casual tee to your interview is wrong because you totally can! Dress up a classic Breton shirt by tucking it under a pair of serious trousers. End the look with a classic black blazer and stylish loafers for a chic OOTD.

Keep your internship outfit serious, but still playful. Opt for a pussybow version of the white button down and pair it with a trendy mini. Wear a strict blazer over your OOTD to dress up the look in a snap.
