5 Key Staples to Refresh Your Work-to-Weekend Wardrobe

One of the ways I like to maximize my wardrobe is shopping for pieces that can pull double duty. That usually calls for blazers that can be styled for work and play, boots that go from the desk to drinks, and denim you can wear for any occasion. I tend to focus my fall spending on these pieces since I’ll often wear them repeatedly and thus want them to hold up through multiple washes and wears. It’s no secret that Saks Fifth Avenue is one of my favorite luxury retailers to score premium looks that last. I’m excited to share that you have yet another opportunity to shop and save these next few days with the Saks Fall Gift Card event taking place. The savings are even bigger this time around since you can earn up to a $900 gift card (that’s $200 more than past events). It’s seriously the best time refresh your fall work-to-weekend wardrobe. Keep scrolling for the items to get you started.

1. Plaid Blazer

I practically live in cozy sweaters and comfy tees during fall. These pieces can tend to look overly casual, so I love having an enduring blazer on hand to instantly dress things up. This Theory plaid blazer is quickly becoming my go-to when I’m stuck at my desk working on deadlines or off to a conference call. The sophisticated silhouette also acts as a chic layer when you’re going out at night.

2. Cutout Sweater

I’ve mentioned my love for cutout sweaters before and it’s no coincidence that you shop some of the best styles during the Saks Gift Card event. You can wear a cutout sweater with a pencil skirt for that boss lady effect on the weekdays – or wear it half-tucked into jeans on the weekends. The deep shoulder cut on this one looks so alluring.

3. Structured Knee-High Boots

Structured knee-high boots are everything right now – and I don’t think a more perfect fall shoe has ever existed. Your styling possibilities are endless… You can wear them under midi skirts, on top of jeans or leggings, and even use them to balance out a thigh-grazing hemline. These Schutz boots have that high-end look that’s actually affordable. They’re so easy to slip on and off – but best of all, the flared heel makes them easy on the feet.

4. Puffer Bag

There’s a point in the season when staples can start to feel a little boring no matter how classic they are. That’s where the right handbag comes into play. I find that puffy, pillowy bags in any texture breath life into an outfit. Saint Laurent has the best of puffer bags and you’re in luck if they’re on your wish list since they’re part of the gift card event!

5. Do-All Denim

A good pair of jeans will take you to work, date night, casual gathering, and the airport. My top pick that toes the line of professional and stylish is coated jeans. These Frame jeans are particularly comfortable for any occasion. I love how it hugs the waist and cuts off at the ankle, making them a perfect match for flats. The irresistible color also looks dressier than your basic blue jeans.
