While Corpcore May Be A Niche Trend, It Borrows Inspiration From A Myriad Of Styles. From Its Fellow ‘Librariancore’ To Preppy Vintage, Below Are Different Ways To Nail The Corporate Chic Aesthetic, On And Off The Workspace. Dive In To Suit Up!


Over the past year, the reiteration of microtrends being labelled as a variety of ‘core’s–think balletcore, cottagecore, and most recently, coquette core– have been hot pockets of discourse in the fashion scene, with no visible signs of slowing down. The latest to arrive at the party? Corpcore.

It’s a fresh take on your typical 9 to 5 dress code. A move away from the ‘clean girl’ and ‘quiet luxury’ ethos, corpcore takes reference from office attire in the ’90s, exploring classic workwear in a slightly grungier and streamlined manner. Think It-girl librarian-esque outfits in the form of striped button downs, plaid skirts and prescription glasses or brief appearance.

Corpcore also takes notes from the runway, with designers across the board reinventing traditional executive dressing through exaggerated volume, asymmetrical detail and deconstructed pieces. For corporate chic – tailored suits, sleek pencil skirts and the classic shirt and tie combination are ruling for sure.
