Bringing personal style to the workplace while maintaining a polished, professional look can often feel like a tricky balance to strike without the right wardrobe staples. If you’ve ever felt stuck trying to put together the perfect business professional or business casual look, you’re in luck! Today I wanted to share a mini Fall & Winter Lookbook to give you some ideas on how to style blazers and suits, and how to layer for the upcoming season. Read on for the style inspiration you’ve been looking for!
Edgy, But Not Too Edgy
You may have noticed that 90’s grunge, punk-band-chic fashion has made a comeback in the last few months. A great way to bring a little attitude to your outfit without sacrificing the classy, office-friendly look is to incorporate subtle leather and silver accents. As you’ll see in the outfit below, I’ve styled the Madison / Savile Shawl Collared Boyfriend Blazer in Black with a pair of black faux leather pants, a chunky silver link band for your Apple watch, black and silver heels, and a matching black leather clutch.
Neutrals With a Touch of Old Money
Looking to put together an outfit with shades of old money, earth tones, and Hailey Bieber-cool? Try pairing a full beige suit like this Shawl Collared Boyfriend Blazer in Camel and the matching Stretch Tailored Ankle Pant. Business professional stealth wealth looks like minimal jewelry with a pair of small gold hoop earrings, and a thin gold watch. Keep things casual with clean, white leather sneakers and a modern spin on a classic briefcase.
Who doesn’t love a good matching set? Grey is a beautiful Winter color that evokes feelings of seriousness and softness, professionalism, and maturity. Try pairing a darker grey set with a light grey blazer like this Shawl Collared Boyfriend Blazer in Grey Mini Check, a bright white purse, and light grey pointed toe slingback heels to bring head-to-toe balance to your outfit.
