For some of us, putting together a casual everyday outfit is a cinch. We know where to find a good pair of jeans, we know how to match them with a cool top, add a few accessories and BOOM! we’re out the door. However, I remember a time in college when I began my internships and found myself in a more corporate setting… and those jeans weren’t cutting it in that world.
Becoming a young professional was more than just being at work on time and getting the job done efficiently. I had to LOOK professional, too. So, for those of you about to hit the professional world, whether it’s an internship for school, job interviews, start a career, or even just getting older and wanting to dress differently, I’ve found a few great choices, for both men and women, that will have you knocking down that professional door!
And remember: You don’t need to spend a million bucks to look like a million bucks!
Belk is a great spot to look for dress shirts and ties. They even go as far as to pair them up for you, taking all the guesswork out!
I love The Calvin Klein selection and especially the Nautica Selection.
The blue and white stripe tie with the white collar button down looks super clean. I love that style on any guy!
Looking for a great fitting suit, or maybe just a nice blazer?
Be sure to stop in at Express.
I mean look at this mannequin, so well put together!
And not to mention, Express is always running a great sale on the 1MX Shirts.

They even have a slim fit option to insure the perfect fit every time.
Now, for the ladies!
