Fall Work Wardrobe Essentials
I’ve been shopping for fall clothes all summer and I’m really looking forward to cooler temperatures. As a wardrobe stylist, I’m always asked what to look for when thrifting for work pieces. Here are some tips as you build your corporate fall wardrobe:
- Look for slacks in a variety of colors (as seen on the right). They can be paired with a solid button-up shirt for a formal look, or a funky pattern for a fun, more casual look.
- Cardigans can be layered and played up with a skinny belt.
- Scarves are this season’s hottest accessory. They can tied in a variety of ways and can put a new twist on a previously worn look. Men, look for chunky scarves to complement a wool blazer.
- Blazers are a must! Look for different textures, colors and fits. Worn with slacks, skirts or denim, a well-fitting blazer polishes any look.
Thrifting can be overwhelming if you don’t have a game plan, so always have an idea of what pieces you are looking for. The payoff is worth it! Stay tuned for my next post where I’ll showcase a look straight from a fashion magazine — found at a local Goodwill store!
