School is out, and for college students everywhere, that means one thing: a summer internship. The perfect position requires the perfect wardrobe, but don’t let the stereotypical frumpy suit get you down. Here are business-casual ideas that will keep ladies and gents looking trendy—and appropriate—at the office.

LADIES

Outfit 1: For a work-to-weekend look, flaunt a comfortable dress with a blazer and pair of printed flats.

GUYS

Outfit 1: For ultimate comfort, wear tailored khakis with a crew neck sweater and a gray blazer. Add a pair of slip-on penny loafers to complete your preppy-with-an-edge outfit.

Outfit 2: As hot summer days approach, it’s important to have outfits that can stand alone without a jacket. Try slim-fit chinos with a printed, tailored shirt and oxfords to stay cool.

Outfit 3: For casual days at the office, wear dark-wash jeans, a khaki linen blazer and suede boots. The weight of the blazer is perfect for summer and can be dressed up with slacks for a more formal look.
