Office style and fashion were two interests that didn’t fit together in a long time. However, modern women are now allowed to look stylish and professional at the same time. Mind behind the Stiletto Meets Espresso blog, Lara Caspari is a style blogger originally from Germany but now living in Switzerland, known for her stylish and professional office looks. If you’re looking for some inspiration to your office looks stylish and functional this fall season, keep on reading to scoop some of her tricks.
Trade your classic skirts and trousers with leather versions.
To keep your looks office-appropriate, avoid making your work outfits edgy and urban-inspired as it’s an indication of a too comfortable style that may be season-inspired yet not professional. Like Lara, think of trading your classic pencil skirt with a leather version with the same style and design, except for the fabric to make sure it looks professional for the office. You may create modern business suits out of your leather trousers and chic leather joggers providing that they look sleek, crisp, and smart, while keeping the rest of your pieces corporate-looking, including the bag, pumps, and blazer.
Trade your classic pumps into a pair of tall boots.
Take advantage of the fall season to wear your tall boots in the office. However, tall boots can only look flattering in shorter dresses, miniskirts, and skinny trousers, so think of wearing them in the office without looking provocative and sexy. The key is to look for a hemline that falls closely to the shaft of your boots so it’ll cover your skin looking demure in a shorter dress. If you wish to keep your looks safe in a longer hemline, resort to full skirts over pencil styles to avoid unwanted bulges from your boots.
Bring some flair to your office style with printed and bold-colored accessories.
If you’re working in a creative office, you can go for bold colors and artistic prints. But to keep everything professional and sleek, bring it on with printed or bold-colored accessories. Like Lara, think of wearing a pair of pink sandals with your olive green blouse and white skirt, or a printed clutch with your leather joggers and white button-down shirt.
Layer like a pro.
Fall season typically feels colder as the winter approaches, so it’s time to master the layering tricks. Like Lara, you may simply slip on a brown leather jacket as an alternative to your classic blazer, or opt for a fur vest that will add some glam to your office looks. Also, wearing your dresses with your button-down shirts looks trendy and modern so be creative tweaking your office style to make them look stylish and functional this fall season.
