When it comes to clothes, “creative professional” can feel like an oxymoron. “Creatives” are supposed to be free-spirited, experimental, and wild. “Professionals” are supposed to be posed and polished. When you look in your closet, how do you balance those styles?

I’m blogging for people like me, creatives in industries where a suit and tie is too stuffy but you still want to wear something that commands respect. This isn’t about looking modest or polished or posed – though those traits are great if they’re important to you! It’s about being thoughtful in what you wear, and making sure that the image you’re conveying shows your personality in the way you want it to.
