Cubicle Chic: Trendy Solutions for a Creative Office

I might be biased, but I think creatives just have more fun! While traditional corporate America is used to the idea of wearing a suit to work, many creative offices {design, fashion, public relations} reject that entire notion. This not only leaves room for, but also quite often creates an expectation of, trendy outfits. Now, while it may be tempting to go all out at your laid-back office, always remember it’s still a place of business!

In this week’s Cubicle Chic, check out three looks that work well at a creative office. It’s easier than you think to combine trendy, affordable style with a few classic pieces.

The Trendy Skort

While the thought of a skort may have us reminiscing about our youth, this season’s take on the trend is far from childish. This BooHoo asymmetrical skort is perfect for the creative office. The black balances out the silhouette and length, while the neon piping gives it a fun twist. Pair the skirt with a simple top and statement necklace that pops. Add an element of surprise with this versatile Aldo bag that doubles as both a backpack and top handled purse and black cage wedges finish the look.

The Funky Classic

Creatives do their fair share of pitching ideas and understand their look is a crucial part of any formal presentation. Instead of reaching for a matching black suit {leave that to corporate}, try a printed blazer with a Topshop skater skirt for a more polished look. This blazer punches up an otherwise plain black and white outfit and the skirts silhouette is more playful than a traditional suit.

The Minimalist

Rather than focusing on bright colors and intricate prints, why not create an outfit that focuses on cut, fabric and details? If you are the minimalist type of creative, this outfit is for you! Start with a luxe pair of satin trousers and a breezy organza top. Dorothy Perkins snakeskin heels are neutral but add some texture. Finally, break up the monochromatic look with a quilted, jewel toned Deux Lux bag. The look still clearly indicates you put some thought into your outfit, without having too many bells and whistles.

What do you wear to your creative workplace? Are you more into bold statements or do you go minimalistic chic?
