Fashion5 Transitional Outfit Ideas to Try This Fall

Transitioning your look from summer to fall isn’t the easiest feat to master: but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible. It’s a matter of learning how to layer properly, mix lighter fabrics with richer textures, and think about your favorite warm weather pieces in a new way. In fact, when you get it right, working your summertime staples into your autumn rotation pays off like woah — and we don’t even mean just wallet-wise either (though there is plenty to be said for shopping your closet). Think about it: You’re starting off the season in pieces you already know you love. What’s better than that?

To get you started on the road to reinventing your look, we’ve put together 5 outfits that crush the in-between season. Check ’em out below!

Take your graphic tee and give it the preppy treatment by adding this season’s street style MVP outerwear piece, the menswear blazer. Finish it all off with loafers, a structured mini bag, distressed denim (to keep the cool factor), and clear aviators for a look that’s 100% blogger babe worthy.

You know that off-the-shoulder button down you can’t get enough of? Oh, it’s still very much in play. Luxe it up for Fall with a burgundy vegan leather mini and leopard block heels. A rich brown croc bag, delicate necklace, and glam cat-eyes seal the deal.

Your spaghetti strap plaid mini dress is made for layering. Instead of a tee or turtleneck, try a lacy bell-sleeve blouse. The mix of vibes and textures makes for the perfect mashup. Just add sleek accessories and you’re good to go!

Cropped overalls don’t have to go bye-bye when temperatures start to drop. Toss them over a pretty knit and add ankle boots for more coverage, then throw on a bomber jacket for when the weather really gets cool. (Pro tip: army green is basically a neutral — and plays really well with blush tones.) Keep it all sleek and chic with a slick clutch and mirrored aviators. Hi, day date outfit.

There’s no denying the power of a sexy slip dress and a crushed velvet option is ideal for Fall wedding season. But if you want to get some more mileage out of your jewel-toned beauty (yes), give it a go for daytime with a cheeky tee and a denim jacket. OTK boots keep it sassy and on trend, and a backpack plays off that 90’s vibe perfectly.

Fashion5 Ways to Update Your Office Wardrobe

The idea of an office wardrobe may seem limiting, but it doesn’t have to be! Get ready to refresh your dress code with new smart and chic pieces while still keeping it office appropriate. Don’t sacrifice your style with the same old, instead let it shine through just by incorporating a few new pieces.

It’s time to workshop your new wardrobe–here are five ways you can update your office wardrobe to give it (and you!) that well-deserved promotion.

Office Dresses

1. Accent Your Dress
Keep your dresses on rotation with new pieces that can spruce up any office outfit. On-trend accents and prints are a great way to update any office wardrobe to keep it looking current and fresh. Our Say So Lace-Up Bodycon Dress is a classic midi-length bodycon dress, but features a chic, detailed lace-up belt. Prints are also a great way to refresh that wardrobe. Our Save and Spot Polka Dot Long Sleeve Midi Dress is a fresh new way to do polka dots and also features a tying neckline.

Blazers

2. Go Bold in Blazers
Blazers are making the biggest comeback in and out of the office this year. Gone are the days of old shoulder pads–the new millennium is giving this bold silhouette a new and even bolder look. Seasonal prints and patterned blazers like our Amuse Society Blazin Black and White Striped Long Sleeve Dress and luxe blazers such as our Black Swan Juliette Black Velvet Blazer will make you the office It Girl. Want to wear a blazer and a dress? You can do that! Our Executive Move Black Long Sleeve Blazer Dress is just what you need to look chic at the office and during after hours.

Loafers

3. Start Loafing Around
The easiest and most comfortable office appropriate shoe may just have to be the loafer. Backed, backless, or slingback, the loafer offers a sleek and professional look while still feeling comfy and casual. Depending on your office dress code, you can shine bright and bold in our Chicago Gold Loafers or keep it classic in our Kelsey Dagger Corduroy Loafers. There are so many styles to choose from mules, slides, and loafers you’re bound to find your very own.

Carry It All

4. Carry It All
You can definitely have it all when you’ve got a workbag that can carry all of your personal essentials, plus your workload. Our Wing Woman Handbag is your have-it-all bag and owes its name to the chic wing-style shape. It is a must-have piece to carry from your commute to the office. And don’t worry if you just want to carry your essentials and nothing more–our Melie Bianco Cameron Handbag is a sleek and chic rounded bag and has a roomy interior for everything you’ll need.

Office Supplies

5. Request: Office Supplies
Go above and beyond the new you by updating your workspace with new supplies. Why not pair your newly updated office wardrobe with new phone cases? Choose from luxe marble, to bold embroidery, and fresh fauna. Don’t forget your office supplies–nothing gets the creative juices flowing with fresh, new ideas more than a cute new notebook. Whether you’re a goal digger or a sucker for succulents these chic Denik notebooks will jazz up your workspace and add fresh new pairings for your outfits.

Don’t hit snooze on your office wardrobe–let us know in the comments how you’ll be updating the new professional you! You can also find all of your office essentials by shopping our office chic collection.
