    Any advice for girls? Most of my smart clothes are from warehouse and some from Karen Millen.
    Any where else I can find smart clothes but with a little bit more character to them? Don't like wearing the traditional suit and skirts/dresses :o:

    2-3 decent and reasonable suits
    2 pairs of black shoes
    10 shirts
    few ties

    Nothing too fancy.
    The likes of Topman acceptable? Or would you stick with the more traditional names?

    I think last year they were just after the start of work, which was a bummer.

    Look smart, not scruffy, and don't pretend you're on the catwalk.
    Obviously things are way more lax on the trading floor, but it differs from desk-to-desk.

    No more than 2 suits if required by any means of the imagination. 2 pairs of shoes I cannot stress enough - I did 10 weeks on 1 pair. Suffice to say they won't be seeing the light of day again.

    I don't know if you need TEN shirts (jesus loggins, it's called a washing machine man!), but if you're in IBD you might find yourself running into M&S to pick some up.

    I think people sometimes worry too much, but in my opinion you really just want to blend in. It's great to be "that intern" if you pull some crazy trade idea out of your arse, but not if you look a bit ridiculous.

    As an intern could you get away with a shirt/ trousers/ cardigan or jumper combo( maybe with tie also)?

    a flat peak, doo rag and sweat band is a must. I barely know any ballers without them.

    I'd imagine a briefcase or messenger bag type thing that matches your suit more so?

    You don't really need a messenger bag, the only papers you'll have to take away from the office are from induction.

    I occasionally took a hold all for gym kit, squash racket, spare shirt etc.

    Make sure you abandon any kind of lame branded bag that they give you in the first week/day.
