I’m partnering with Ann Taylor today to share some of my favorites pieces for fall that look great in the office, on a date or on the weekend. This past weekend was gorgeous here in Minnesota. It might be the last warm weekend we have which was great for the Ryder Cup. I’m not a big sports person, but I do like to watch golf. It was so cool to have the tournament here in our state…and even better that the US won! It’s Monday today which means back to reality. I don’t share too many work-appropriate outfits because I’m not in the traditional office setting anymore, but I love pieces that can easily transition from the office (or more likely a meeting for me) to the weekend.
Here are my 5 fall must-haves for building a fall work wardrobe that can easily transition to the weekend too:
- A pencil skirt: I love this leather skirt which comes in this gorgeous fall emerald color.
- An oversized turtleneck: I paired this one with this pencil skirt, but it would look great with jeans or leggings on a casual fall day too. I love how soft it is and I always buy an ivory turtleneck every fall/winter.
- A moto jacket: Moto jackets look great paired with a casual outfit or a dress. I love them with long dresses and full skirts. I got this one in the gray color, but I think I want it in green too!
- Leather skinnies: Depending on how conservative your workplace is, you could get away with wearing these to work. I’d pair them with an oversized sweater and a long blazer. The cropped style would look great with pumps and the slim, but not too tight fit is just right.
- A lightweight sweater: Layering pieces are some of the best investments for your fall wardrobe. I love lightweight sweater to layer under jackets. This cowl neck version works great paired with a skirt for work and you can style it off-the-shoulder for the weekend.
