Office-Friendly Fall Outfit Ideas

See how to take some of fall’s best trends from your closet to your office!

When a new season rolls in and you can’t wait to get your hands on all the latest trends, it can be tricky to figure out which ones you can wear into your workplace. The great thing about fall is that a lot of the season staples are perfectly office-friendly, and can also be easily transitioned from the 9 to 5 hours to happy hour (more on that soon!).

To get you started on making your favorite fall trends your go-to for your workplace wardrobe, we have a few looks to get you inspired! Take a peek…

As we get reacquainted with midi-skirts, we remember just how much we love them – not only for their feminine charm, but for their versatility throughout the seasons! Pair your pleated midi skirt with a button up shirt or your favorite blouse, and when the temps cool down throw on a turtleneck or sweater with a pair of tights and your favorite booties for a classic and chic look.

If you consider yourself fashion-forward, or are willing to step into some of fall’s best trends, then tie-waist pants (also called paper bag waist pants – for reasons we’re still unsure of) should be your go-to this season! They pair well with tucked in tops and blouses and many different styles of jackets, which means you’ll get a lot of versatility with them!

You may think that leopard print is the last thing to wear to the office, but it can actually be styled in a tasteful and classic way. We love this leopard vest paired with a sweater and leather leggings (or your favorite skinny black pants). Throw on a pair of booties or heels and you have yourself a trendy outfit perfect for work.

We’ve talked about how versatile a button up dress can be, which is why it should be on the top of your must-have list for fall! This is just one of the many ways it can be worn for work this fall. We also love styling it completely open like a cardigan with a tank and your favorite pair of pants!

If you can go a little more casual for the workplace, we love this bomber-jogger combo. Bomber jackets are the layering piece of the season, and can be easily worn to the office with the many different color and print options they’re coming in this fall. Jogger pants are also the new “it” pant for the office. We particularly love these ones because the style and material make them look like an updated dress pant.
