How to get Anne Hathaway’s look from Warner Bros. Entertainment’s new movie The Intern! Now out in theaters everywhere, The Intern is about a 70-year-old widower, Robert De Niro, who is looking to come out of retirement and applies to be an intern at an e-commerce site founded and run by Anne Hathaway. Anne Hathaway’s character in the movie, Jules Ostin, has a sophisticated, yet trendy style. Now I’ve had my fair share of fashion internships, some paid, but mostly pro bono work, so I wanted to share with you ways to dress like the head of a fashion company, even if you are still the intern.

  1. This past year I purchased a white cotton button-down from Gap; it is casual fit and super comfortable. It has been so versatile and can be worn both to work or out. It also gives you a more professional look, even when worn with jeans or, in this case, leather pants. Layering the shirt is a great way to give you a more sophisticated look.
  2. Many people already have a pullover sweater, so try layering that with collared shirts underneath. Look at mixing colors and prints when layering, it won’t be overwhelming because the undershirt doesn’t show much.
  3. On to the pants. Leather or pleather pants are a perfect way to make your outfit look trendy. They have that bold aspect about them that shows you are cutting edge.
  4. And then the heels, I’m a big fan of colorful shoes, especially when worn with neutral colors, they pop nicely. I feel more professional when I wear heels, but they aren’t for everyone, so try out what style shoe you feel confident in and roll with that. (I included three different heights of shoes below)

In the end, don’t be afraid to dress like a founder of a successful fashion company, like the saying goes “fake it until you make it!”
