Ask BB: What to Wear for a Fashion PR Interview

I am a sophomore at the University of South Florida. I recently got really great news - I will be interviewing for an internship with one of NYC's top fashion PR firms. My interview is in early December, and I have NO IDEA WHAT TO WEAR! I do not know how the weather will be, how professional I should get (versus how chic I should look), etc. Since it is a high fashion firm, I have to look perfectly put together (keep in mind I am on a budget). Please help! —Meghan

First, do your homework. Find out everything you can about how people at the company dress. If you can follow the company on Twitter, do it. Twitpics and tweets can provide lots of clues about the office culture and dress code. (Just don't say anything like "I read allll your tweets!" during the interview. Might come across as a bit stalker-ish.)
