Workwear for Creatives

Standard

Work look

Working at a digital marketing firm, dressing appropriately doesn’t mean wearing a suit and tie. Now, even though a suit is great, my type of dressing up doesn’t alway fit that standard. I enjoy wearing a nice pair of slim fit khakis with the cuffs rolled up and some funky socks. It’s great that I can rock this look majority of the time. Sure, when you’re meeting with clients it’s a requirement to wear business attire. However, on the days you have no meetings, try something similar to the outfit I wore this past week.

Gingham

I paired my khakis and socks with a lightweight gingham button down shirt, a timeless pattern that’s perfect for summer. With the summer heat just getting started, it’s best to stick to lighter colors and lightweight fabrics. Adult jobs usually don’t allow you to wear shorts to work, so this is a great way to keep cool.

Messenger Bag

I finished my workwear off with leather, lots of leather! My asos suede shoes and an awesome leather laptop bag from Aldo. Note, a nice bag leather bag gives you a “ready to kick butt at work” look.

If you get a chance, try loosen up your workwear. If you can’t, try this look on casual Friday or even during the weekend.

For the working man that’s in the office 9 to 5, there isn’t a big change in the wardrobe for Spring. Sure you lose the long pea coat, gloves, and scarf, but you still have to look presentable. Well here are some tips on how to Spring into the workplace in style.

Spring means warmer days, so switch the nice tailored dress shirt for a sports shirt. A sports shirt comes in a variety of fabrics: linen, chambray, oxford, or denim. The plus side on wearing one of these is that they aren’t perfectly tailored to your body, so you won’t feel uncomfortable in the heat. DKNY offers sports shirts in a variety of fabric and prints for their Spring collection.

Instead of topping off your sports shirt with a blazer, go with a lightweight linen sweater. Banana Republic has a variety of sweaters that can help dress up your sports shirt.

Most of us can’t get away with using shorts in the workplace, so what’s an alternative to dress pants? One word, chinos! Chinos are lightweight and made of twill fabric that are perfect for the warmer days. Topman offers a variety of colors, giving you more options for your wardrobe.

Finally, when it comes to the oxfords, monks, or cap toes you used for Fall and Winter they can usually transition into your Spring wardrobe. Instead of pairing them with long dress socks, lose them, roll up your chinos, and show some ankle.

If you haven’t added any Spring-worthy pieces to your wardrobe, be sure to check out the links I provided. Remember, it’s okay to add prints and patterns to your wardrobe, it is Spring after all.
