In my book, “Manic Monday Makeover” I share tips on dressing for your particular industry.  If there are suggested rules for your particular industry, then it is wise to study the culture of your workplace and adapt to the best of your ability.  Remember: The first impression is everything and you represent your company.  Think of your workplace wardrobe as the unofficial uniform. Here are a few tips for the creative professional.  “You have a really creative job and you get paid to show it.  In fact, your job depends on it.  I know that when I am looking for an Ad agency or PR professional, I look at the personality of the people who work there – do they show their personality and creativity in their look? This tells me that creativity is not just a job, it’s a lifestyle.  It might not be as easy for some creative people, but push the envelope and do the best that you can.  Try wearing a great pair of dark denim jeans with pops of color in your shoes and accessories, and pull it all together with a great boyfriend blazer.  If you’re an executive in the creative arena, then think suits with an edge like an asymmetrical neckline and suits with great color and fun patterns.” (excerpt from “Manic Monday Makeover: How to Plan a Stylish Workweek“)

PLAY WITH PRINTS AND COLOR

Aren’t we lucky?! We get to have a creative job AND dress for it! Bold shirts, pants and skirts are great but pair them with a neutral solid color and classic silhouette to make the look interesting and not messy.

TRY UNIQUE ACCESSORIES

Much like a striking pop of color to a classic suit try adding unique accessories when you wear muted colors or classic career wear to add a little pizzaz!

HAVE FUN WITH DETAILS

Meeting with a client for the first time? Try wearing something that shows a fun detail like a punchy color handbag, or quirky brooch. Having fun with details is a way to bring attention to your creativity and it’s a fun conversation piece!
