The key to successfully building a fall wardrobe is investing in a well-rounded assortment of staples that can be styled a multitude of ways. From tailored separates to super-chic dresses, having a slew of fashion-forward essentials in your arsenal is your best defense against rushed mornings with no sartorial plan. Whether you’re commuting to an office or answering emails from home, there are plenty of fresh fall outfit ideas for work just ahead.
When you think of fall dressing it’s likely that textured fabrics and warm color palettes spring to mind. And though chunky cardigans and insulating turtlenecks are absolute musts, you’ll need to account for layering pieces too. Be sure to add a few lighter options into the mix, like Sleeper‘s printed pajama set. The chic satin pieces can be both pared back with slides for those working from home and dressed up with boots and a classic trench coat for in-person meetings.
Regardless of where you’ll be physically, the style set is serving up a wide range of professional looks that are worth re-creating for fall. Ahead are the key pieces you need for the new season.
