Best Fall Looks for the Office

This fall’s trends vary from sparkles to goth to fishnets—none of which are especially appropriate for the workplace. Now that we’ve covered what isn’t appropriate work attire this fall, let’s discuss what is. We saw a plethora of luxe layered looks, cozy sweater vests, and wide-leg trousers. Luckily, it’s entirely possible to be directional and still conservative at the office. It’s just a matter of knowing which trends work and which don’t. That’s what we’re here for!

Scroll through to view the best office-ready looks for fall.
