What to Wear To A Fashion Internship

Making a good impression at your first day on the job is always important – when it’s in a fashion office, you’re expected to bring sartorial your A-game. Ahead, four Harper’s Bazaar Arabia assistants reveal how to look polished and professional without compromising on your personal style.

Angelique Gourdon, digital assistant

“Never wear more than one statement piece. I also usually don’t wear more than two colours. Simple-chic is my motto.”

“Don’t be afraid to mix casual with formal. Grab your fanciest skirt and throw in a graphic tee with sneakers - that’s my go-to outfit.”

“For work I always go for ensembles that are feminine mixed with smart-casual. Accessorising with a nice belt and good shoes goes a long way and makes outfits more versatile. If you want some height then opt for midi block heels, so you can last the day.”

Natasha Law, events assistant

“I always go for a minimal and clean aesthetic at work. I think it's important not to surrendor to trends and just dress according to your body type. I love to mix it up with a smart all-black look and comfortable flats for out-of-office meetings. On a more relaxed day, I’d wear a pretty printed linen top paired with white smart-casual pants and delicate sandals. It’s so hot in Dubai so layering isn’t much of an option.”
