The term corporate goth is not one that most people are familiar with. The one great thing about being a modern goth is that it doesn’t just mean one thing. In some ways “corporate goth clothing” is a little like the old-school mullet… business in the front, party in the back.

In other words, corporate goth clothing combines traditional business attire with a punk rock, goth sensibility.

What Does it Mean to be Corporate Goth?

To be corporate goth and have the fashion and style of someone who considers themselves that is interesting and diverse.

The term “corporate goth” has been used for decades to describe someone who works in a corporate setting but has a more alternative or dark style. It’s also been used to describe someone who is just generally fascinated by all things dark, morbid, or macabre. You can call them professional goth. That is, someone who isn’t PAID to be goth… they are a professional, and they are goth.

In other words, it’s a person who likes darkness but also likes to go to work in the morning. Many of these people are artists or musicians whose work is influenced by dark themes, so they may have tattoos with those kinds of images or they may wear clothing that reflects their interests.

Many people have tattoos with skulls, crosses, or other symbols associated with death and religion (depending on their religious views). Some people like to wear black nail polish on their fingers and toes as well as dark eyeliner and mascara. They may wear earrings as well as necklaces with skulls or crosses on them.

Women often wear fishnets under their clothes because they like the look of them without showing them off too much (or because they think they’re sexy). Others may wear thigh-high stockings rather than pantyhose when they go.

The overall look of a corporate goth can vary depending on the individual, but there are some commonalities. Corporate goths tend to dress in black or dark colors that can range from deep purple to gray.

If you’re looking to build your wardrobe, it’s easy to find pieces that fit into the corporate goth style. You can’t go wrong with a simple black dress shirt or pants; this is a great way to start building your wardrobe and incorporating more gothic elements into your look.

For women, there are plenty of options when it comes to footwear, including heels or wedges. For men, boots are a great option because they help complete the look without being too over-the-top.

There are also plenty of accessories that work well with the corporate goth style, including necklaces and bracelets. You can get even more creative by adding jewelry like cufflinks or ties that have skulls on them!
