Career clothing on an intern budget

Jenna Johnson

For those entering the workforce straight out of college, dressing professionally five days a week can be daunting. Building a work wardrobe isn't cheap, and navigating an office dress code can be tricky. But there's a solution: Swap the flip-flops and skimpy sundresses in favor of age-appropriate items that can transition from a hard day at work to happy hour.
