Corporate, But Make It Cool

GEOMETRIC DECOR SQUARE TOE MULES

When it comes to your in-office look, footwear can make all the difference. A square-toe mule carries just the right amount of interest, particularly when paired with an office-approved kitten heel height. Style with jeans and a lightweight sweater if you’re in a casual environment or a pencil skirt and blouse if you need your business best.

Open Floorplan Optics

SILK SHIRT DRESS

If you’re heading in to one of those mid-size ad agencies with lots of group brainstorming spots, an open floor plan, and exposed pipes, think out side the box when it comes to your wardrobe. Update your basic button-up or shirt dress with an inspo-worthy print such as this Hannah Broger-inspired option from the MOTF x Art silk Collection. She’s polished and cool but not afraid to color outside the lines.

Summer-Suitable Trousers

LINEN FLIPPED WAIST PANTS

A high-waisted and wide-leg silhouette will carry you straight through the season. Tuck in a puff-sleeved blouse and pull on pumps to keep it formal, or wear platform sneaks and a tee for a more dressed-down environment.

Love for Linen

LINEN CROPPED BLOUSE

You can never go wrong with linen for summer. A loose-fitted blouse works well dressed up or down, while bold earth tones are eternally stylish. Pair it with matching trousers or a boho-inspired skirt for easy breezy go-to looks you’ll reach for on the regular.

Startup Savvy

SILK OMBRE WRAP SKIRT

If your 9-to-5 home is a true startup—complete with a shared workspace and perhaps a foosball table—take the opportunity to make a real fashion statement with statement print in a lightweight and breathable silk. This Kandinsky-inspired number from the MOTF x Art Silk Collection effortlessly channels that boss energy, but pair it with a low block heel and to stay true to your down-to-earth vision.

The Modern Pencil

FITTED SHOULDER PAD DRESS

Whether you’re an associate at a law firm or modeling excel sheets at a financial megahouse, a pencil dress will never lead you astray. Look for design details that channel your personal style — shoulder pads are totally of-the-moment, and a gathered waistline is *always* flattering.

Fiercely Fashion Forward

TAILORED BLAZER & SHORTS SET

Work in fashion, but still want to respect the corporate confines? An updated set, complete with cropped jacket and to-the-knee shorts that are both appropriate and chic, hits the mark.

On-the-Go Ease

OIL PAINTING PRINT SQUARE BAG

If you’re client-facing, you’ll likely have to run around from here to there to meetings, coffees, lunches, and more. The key, then, is an easy-breezy bag that can be dressed up and down while playing nicely with the rest of your wardrobe. Grab this chic lil Van Gogh-inspired mini bag from the MOTF x Art Silk Collection that you can toss over your shoulder or covert to a crossbody for those effortless vibes.
