Today, fashion has left the comfortable era of simple dresses and clean shoes. Your sense of fashion is a primary informant of the basic and most important things in your life, a description of your essence, amongst other things. If you are a software engineer, you might just be in a t-shirt and jeans still, but freelancers, consultants, and other creatives might feel differently about fashion.
The suit and tie corproate look is no longer the norm as more people are gravitating towards the coworking space, which translates to "no dress codes." There is no need to have a wardrobe of professional business-like outfits it you have transitioned to the coworking environment, which revolves around dressing for yourself.
Coworking and fashion are not the most common words put together in a sentence. In fact, this blog post is a little bit weird, but we are exhausted on a Thursday and just decided to write whatever might be fun for us. A coworking spaces are the trickiest place to keep up a fashion style, seeing as there are no rules.
So who says you can't wear joggers to work? If that is how you feel, then, own it.
Coworking space, unlike a home office, gives you an excuse to wear pants during your work day. Working from a home office can sometimes be difficult to be motivated to try to look good or wear pants as even when you are on a video conference call, they do not see your lower body.
Here are a few more reasons we think the coworking space is a perfect fit for your fashion sense;
IT ALLOWS FOR EXPRESSION
The coworking facility allows you to express yourself and not have to wear a tie when you feel like wearing denim. In a traditional office, there are rules and dress codes that have to be strictly followed, but with a coworking space, no one makes the rules, so there is less to worry about.
Coworking spaces, alongside the freedom of creative ingenuity, also affords everyone the luxury of looking elegant, relaxed, or world class, as often as you please. It embraces the mystery of the new age's view of professionalism, as each person as a unique means of embracing and representing his or her style, which is one that trumps every form of routine or stereotype.
If you are into arts or culture, working from a coworking space affords you the luxury of putting on your handmade clothes to work everyday if you so desire.
YOU CAN DRESS WITH YOUR BUSINESS IN MIND
In the 21st century, where everyone is trying to make a statement with their brand and personal identity, every opportunity to present your business is like a goldmine.
The success of a business meeting or a happy hour networking session depends strongly on the first impression, the majority of which involved a sense of fashin that is quickly noticed. It makes passing the message of your brand across easier because whoever meets you can already begin to form an impression about you. Ideas are not the only things shared in a coworking space, and because there is freedom to be yourself, you might as well pass off a strong first impression with your outfit. For example, if Hugh Hefner wears pajamas for his brand and could get away with it most of the time because it is his branding!
YOU CALL THE SHOTS
Unlike traditional offices where someone else decides what to wear Monday through Friday, at a coworking facility, you call the shots. You make the rules; you decide what you wear, The possibilities are so limitless when you are working from a coworking space, seeing as you are completely in charge.
