If you can afford a pair of Edward Greens or Lobbs (not assuming you can at your age, but just making a point), wear them with pride!

A windsor that is not sportscaster huge is perfectly acceptable.

Worst advice ever. As someone who is working in finance: office politics is HUGE. senior bankers care very much about what you're wearing. if you're interviewing with associates and other junior bankers they won't care or notice, but senior bankers do.
No cufflinks, no cutaway collars, no fat ari-gold tie knots.
Shine your shoes. light shirt, dark tie, dark suit.
that being said: your clothes won't land you the internship (i'm assuming because of the timeframe) but they can sure as hell keep you from it.
