Corporate goth (or Corp Goth) is an aesthetic of alternative office fashion that is not only popular for people who work in an office environment, but also as a gothic sub-culture on its own. It's a perfect look for people who love the dark romantic aspects of goth style, but also want to look professional or not too out there. Corp Goth is a great way to integrate more alternative clothing or accessory items into a mainstream wardrobe or to mix and match between two types of wardrobe.
How to dress corporate goth
If you want to integrate goth fashion into your everyday wardrobe at work, start small and see how your colleagues react. Accessorise your regular outfits and then move on to bigger pieces. Get creative but avoid a quick and stark change if you aren't sure about what is and isn't allowed in your office.
Some good upper pieces to start with would be a blouse, vest or blazer. Tops with collars allow you to accessorise with unique ties or brooches if you're not able to wear anything too bold. Keep it black or choose something with some more subtle patterns like baroque or filigree. You could even sneak in some skull cufflinks! Restyle has the best stylish corpgoth coats and blouses to keep you looking chic.
Pencil skirts are super flattering and chic while still looking professional. Pieces with subtle corset detailing and pinstripe fabric will jive well with most standard workplaces. Check out Killstar and Punk Rave for the best Corpgoth options.
A sleek pair of high heels are a staple for working professionals so we recommend the DOLLY-50 series by Demonia: these come in matte and patent finishes and are a classic Mary Jane style that incorporates a curved heel and platform that's just different enough to set you apart from your coworkers but not rocking the boat too hard.
