Opt for a printed scarf that will spice up your fall office outfits.
Whether you’re working in a conservative, creative, or casual workplace, a printed scarf can add some flair to your fall office looks. Like Jacey, you may simply opt for a striped shawl that can look more appropriate with suits, blazers, and straight leg pants over plaid print ones that look a bit relaxed and casual. However, a shorter dress can be appropriate in the office only if you wear them with black opaque tights, worn with a blanket scarf that will add you some cover.
Go for an office-appropriate dress that will make your fall style creative and feminine.
Wearing dresses can be acceptable in creative and casual workplaces, but be sure you keep your office looks appropriate for the fall season by wearing your dress with toppers, or even a blouse that will keep you warm in the colder months. Like Jacey, think of wearing your checkered vintage dress with a pussy bow blouse that look romantic and chic at the same time. Or, opt for long-sleeved style of dresses that will make your office outfit more modest and season-appropriate.
Resort to heavier and sturdier fabric to keep you warm this fall season.
If you’re working in a fashion-related office, going for outfits with asymmetric hemlines and embellishments can look creative and season-appropriate at the same time. However, if you’re in a more conservative office, go for ensembles with heavier and sturdier fabrics like neoprene, leather, wool, tweed, knit and such to keep you warm in the colder months. Like Jacey, you may also trade your chiffon blouses with a chic sweater that will go well with your office skirts and classic pumps.
Layer like a pro.
Going for layered look is a means of looking stylish and functional on your fall looks. Like Jacey, you may simply opt for a sailor blazer that will look chic with your striped blouse and skinny pants. Or, opt for a black coat that will look professional in creative offices especially on tweed blouses and skirts that usually look casual in a more formal environment. When the fall season gets colder, going for tall boots, wool coats, and scarves can be great to make your sheer dresses appropriate for the workplace. Indeed, dressing for a creative workplace this fall is just easy and effortless if you heed these tricks from Jacey.
