Fall Clothing and Accessories Every Working Woman Will Benefit From
Now that the leaves are changing and the weather is cooling, it’s time to begin thinking about your fall wardrobe. As more and more women are going back to the office, it’s time to add some fall essentials to your closet, alongside your womens briefcase.
Here are some fall clothing choices perfect for the working woman...
Trench coats in a neutral color, such as navy, black, or khaki, are a great fall essential. You can wear the trench coat on those breezy fall days or when the weather is drizzly and wet. However, you can also wear the trench coat when the weather is perfect as an alternative to a blazer. When paired with a patterned blouse and solid pants, a trenchcoat can help you pull the look together.
Boots are another necessary fall essential for a working woman’s wardrobe. Boots not only look great with pants and leggings but pair nicely with dresses and skirts as well. If you don’t want to wear long boots all the time, consider getting a pair of short ankle boots to pair with jeans or pants.
Glasses that Look Professional
While you may be tempted to choose whimsical patterned glasses for the fall season, such as leaves or turkeys, you should choose professional glasses in a solid color instead. That way, your patterns aren’t clashing. Also, whimsical patterns may look cute on a Zoom call, but office settings require a more professional wardrobe. Popular color choices for this fall season include copper, orange, brown, red, and mustard yellow.
Fall isn’t fall without a gorgeous, warm sweater to snuggle up in at the office. If you’re wearing those sweaters to the office, you may want to opt for a long cardigan to wear over leggings or pants. Another fall option is a patterned solid sweater that is cropped at the waist. You also can’t go wrong with a sweater dress. Sweater dresses are back in this fall with a vengeance. Choose a hunter or forest green sweater dress, and you can extend the wear through the holiday season. You could also find sweater dresses in neutral colors, such as gray and navy.
White shirts are the perfect staple for any fall wardrobe, especially if you opt for patterned pants or a patterned sweater. Even though white button-up shirts are a business staple, they don’t have to be boring. Instead, you can choose one of the latest styles, such as a white shirt with ruching at the collar area or on the sleeves. Large sleeves are in this year, especially if they gather at the wrists. Ruffles, a nod to femininity, are also back this season. You can find ruffles at the collar, sleeves, and even down the front of the shirt. You are sure to find a statement shirt that can be a staple in your fall wardrobe moving forward.
One of the fashion trends as fall settles in is wide-leg trousers. While wide-leg trousers have been a summer staple for the past couple of years, designers have pushed the envelope and changed the trouser fabrics to fall. When paired with boots, wide-leg trousers are a great way to welcome fall into the workplace. Look for a wide-leg pattern that will complement your boot choices, such as a brown tweed or a black herringbone.
Depending on where you live, your fall may be long and warm or short and cool, but you can still enjoy fall through your wardrobe choices. With hints of fall leaves in your color choices and some good basic wardrobe staples, you’ll be ready for all the best fall has to offer.
