We at Fashionista know more than anyone that not all dress codes work for every office. I mean, how many other employers are okay with you sporting leather shorts, pink faux fur, sneakers, or sometimes all three!? Luckily, we can be adventurous, but we know that not many of you fashionistas can do the same. That’s why, we’ve created a wardrobe cheat sheet to help you dress for success but still look chic!
If, like us, you work in the fashion industry — or any other creative environment — then it’s likely the dress code is pretty liberal. However, you still don't want to go over-the-top – it'll distract coworkers and the boss from all the amazing work you're doing! Leave the sequins and feathers at home and go for appropriately printed pants, a color-blocked blouse, and eye-catching bracelet. Then, step it up with ankle strap sandals!
Your occupation demands high organizational skills and the ability to command a
team — and your style should reflect that. Invest in a classic, well-tailored black skirt suit and personalize it with a patterned blouse or statement necklace. Add sleek platforms and you’ll look powerful and serious – but still like yourself!
As a producer or public relations manager, chances are you're on your feet half the day, so you can forget about the stiletto heels (sorry!). Instead opt for comfy wedges in a standout color. Keep the rest of the look minimal with smart trousers in a neutral tone and a traditional striped sweater. The perfect finishing touch? A fun pendant!
