Fall fashion. It summons thoughts of denim jackets, oversized sweaters and leather booties. And it's all right around the corner.
But what's in your fall work wardrobe? Perhaps it's time to hit the shops or dig deep into the depths of your closet to prepare yourself for the cooler months ahead. Here are nine fall fashion staples that every working woman needs in her wardrobe.
1. Denim Jacket
A denim jacket is a staple for any fall wardrobe. You can wear it over almost any outfit, especially in a casual workplace.
2. Oversized Cardigan
An oversized cardigan is a good piece to have in your work wardrobe, especially for offices that are always a little too cold.
3. Leather Booties
Leather booties are a comfortable alternative to high heels. You can pair them with a skirt or dress to dress them up, or with a pair of jeans in a more casual office.
4. Leather Jacket
A leather jacket is a staple. It's perfect for the workplace, too, because you can dress it up or down.
5. Sheer Scarf
A sheer scarf is a great accessory to have in the fall because you can wear it around your neck to keep you warm or tie it up in your hair to make a fashion statement.
6. Corduroy Pants
Corduroy pants are a fun addition to your fall wardrobe that you can only really wear in, well, fall.
7. Simple Turtle Neck
A simple turtle neck is a great underlayer that can be paired with slacks or jeans and topped with a cardigan or jacket.
8. High-Wasted Jeans
High-wasted jeans are casual, but in the right work environment, you can pair them with a blouse and sweater or jacket for a casual office look.
9. Blanket Scarf
A blanket scarf might not be necessary indoors, but if you work in an office where the air conditioning is constantly blasting, you'll be happy you have one.
