- Make your creative office looks professional, yet trendy and modern.
Creative workplaces like a fashion industry office, advertising, media, and such don’t demand business suits and uniforms, so you can be creative and trendy as long as you know how to keep your looks polished. Like Camille, you may sport some chic shorts to the office, but limit it to the Bermuda style that falls on your knees and pair it with a chic top and blazer. Think of trading those classic straight-leg pants with a pair of printed pants in a classic pattern or a pair of boxy culottes that looks structured. This way, you can keep your style trendy without compromising your professional image.
- Dress up your casual items with more sophisticated pieces.
Though it might be easy to slip on a pair of jeans and a graphic tee, looking more dressed up by wearing your casual pieces with more sophisticated items look more interesting. Like Camille, dress up your casual walking shorts with a chic white blouse, or add some trendy flair to your basic tee by wearing it with a dress. This way, you’ll look more creative and fashionable without exerting too much effort.
- Go for a casual yet chic weekend looks.
Denim may be the most comfortable fabric you may go for, but going for chicer versions won’t hurt. Like Camille, you may opt for a shirtdress and tie a denim jacket around your waist to keep your effortlessly cool vibe. Or, dress down your classic black jumpsuit with a pair of canvas sneakers that look cool and sporty. Also, wearing skirts and blouses on your weekend looks will add some flair to your street style. Just keep them neutral to avoid looking trying too hard on your outfits like Camille did.
