The Anatomy of a Stylish Outfit: Fall Work Wear

Hey Fashionista!  Welcome back to The Anatomy of a Stylish Outfit series!  If you missed the first post: The Anatomy of a Stylish Outfit: Fall Casual Weekend you can read it now before continuing on.  If you're ready for this week's The Anatomy of a Stylish Outfit: Fall Work Wear dive right in!  I've got your style formula (that can be mixed and matched - of course!) for the perfect fall work wear in addition to photo inspiration.  Read on to get the full scoop on this week's post!

First Layer // The Foundation & Basics
Top: Camisole, Short-Sleeve Blouse, Tee (V-Neck, Square-Neck, Boat-Neck, Round-Neck) -- Fall Trend Top: Peplum Top
Bottoms: Pencil Skirt, Trousers/ Slacks, Capri Pants, Straight Leg Pants
Dresses: Shift Dress & A-Line Dresses
Second Layer // Stylish Clothing Add-Ons
Top: Cardigan (<--good opp for bold color or fun pattern!) Blazers, Collared Tops and Sweaters
Third Layer // Accessory Overlay
Jewelry: Necklace, Earrings, Watch (always best to keep these simple)
Accessories: Belt, Scarf (This one is perfect for fun color combinations and patterns!)
Shoes: Flats (These look great in a pop of color or fun pattern)
Boots (camel brown is always a classic choice)
Pumps (Classic Black or a Fun Pattern or Color works well here)

------- Outfit Inspiration for Fall Work Wear -------
Outfit #1: Cable Knit Sweater + Pencil Skirt + Colorful Belt + Colorful Peep Toe Pumps
Outfit #2: Blazer + Stripe Shift Dress + Colorful Pumps
Outfit #3: Cropped Blazer + Blouse + Straight Leg Pants + Pattern Pumps
Outfit #4: Traditional Blazer + Blouse + Straight Leg Pants + Classic Brown Pumps
Peplum Top + Belt + Pencil Skirt + Handbag + Studded Earrings
Psst...Peplum Tops are super trendy for fall.  If you take a trendy piece like this top and neutralize it with a color like gray, and pair it with a pencil skirt, you are up-to-date with fashion while looking professional- a total win!
Blazer + Flow-y Pattern Dress + Handbag + Pumps + Bangle Bracelets + Sunglasses
 Psst....This ensemble balances print, pattern and color with professionalism very well!
Pumps are always a MUST.
Classic colors like black, brown and beige are perfect. 
Don't forget to introduce color too!
Cardigan + Lace Tee + Trousers + Belt + Pumps + Handbag + Bracelets + Earrings
Mustard is the quintessential color of Fall. Use it often - the upside? It pairs well with gray too!
The Classic Black Pump!
Layering necklaces in a subtle way creates an interesting and fashionable take for work wear. Clean-cut clothing can be extremely boring if you don't have a little variation in accessories to liven it up.
The Scarf.  It's like a necklace in terms of bringing style. It's a chance to make a statement to your dashing fall work wear.  To polish off your professional look, throw on a colorful scarf to complete your style.
If you ever get stuck in a style rut while you're getting ready for work, you can always refer to this blog post to get your ideas flowing again. As you can see there are endless ways to create a stylish outfit for fall work wear. Mix and match colors, patterns and pieces - these style formulas are meant to be remixed!
