5 OFfice must-haves to always keep handy in your closet
There are many reasons to love the fall season. The nature is turning into magical colours, nights are getting darker while we’re getting cosier at home, and it’s also Halloween a.k.a. pumpkin season. What we fear, though, is having to wake up every morning from the warmth of our bed and decide what to wear when mornings are freezing and the autumn sun warms up in the afternoon. Office-friendly outfits give real headaches when all we would like is to snuggle in a big jumper and comfy trousers.
However, there are simple and versatile items that are needed in every wardrobe to make our life way easier. It’s quite challenging to find an appropriate outfit for every day of the week but once you find the basic stapes that are both comfortable and stylish, you won’t want to dress in any other way. Here we give you 5 items to wear from Monday to Friday, and that you can mix and match the following weeks to save you time when getting ready.
Monday: Blazer + Straight jeans
Face the cold windy mornings with a thick wool blazer that can be layered and buttoned up over a light silk blouse or cover your shoulders once you reach the office. A classic dark wash denim gives a laid back style to the outfit and will feel like a second skin when you’ve just came out of a relaxing weekend. And those cowboy boots are definitely made for walking!
Tuesday: Wrap coat + Printed dress
Step up the autumn wardrobe with a long camel coat when it starts to get really cold. It looks chic with everything you wear and it's the most effortless office staple to slip on before you leave the house. Wear over a maxi dress to add a feminine touch and finish the look off with a pair of high-top sneakers or knee-high boots. If you need to go out for a last minute lunch, grab a mini shoulder bag that is both practical to fit your essentials and seriously on-trend – the smaller, the better!
Wednesday: Pencil skirt + Trench coat
For an important meeting, turn your outfit into something a bit more chic with a long-length pencil skirt that will see you through a long day at work. Choose a shirt to tuck into the skirt or wear it loose if it’s a cropped peplum top, and pair with some kitten heels to stay comfortable yet elegant. And a trench coat is the timeless staple everyone should have in their wardrobe for rainy days to protect your outfit until you reach the office.
Thursday: White shirt + Slim black pants
A clean white shirt always looks professional paired with fitted black pants and it’s a classic staple you’ll never get tired of. This chic-but-cool look will also bring you from the office to afterwork drinks without having to change anything. Just add a pair of leather loafers to wear during the day and carry with you a tote bag big enough so that you can change for high heels in the evening.
Friday: Shirt dress + Corduroy pants
For dressier office environments, a black shirt dress always does the trick matched with a pair of pumps. If you’re dressing for a casual Friday, wear it as a jacket over a sleeveless top for a versatile and fashion-forward look. We’re in love with everything corduroy this season so adding a trendy ribbed trousers will make your outfit ready to step into the weekend. Add some height with chunky heel mules or keep it low with a pair of sneakers, TGIF after all!
