Changing out of denim and a t-shirt can sometimes feel daunting when it comes to putting together an outfit for work. There is a reason people dress the part, because I think our clothes can outwardly portray how we view ourselves. A suit can make you feel powerful, confident and put together. I wore this bright purple suit while I was in New York, and it was a fun different take on just neutrals for a suit.
Especially with Fall clothes it’s a great time to experiment with different layers and textures. I pulled together some pieces for different tops, bottoms, accessories and jackets that would be perfect to elevate your work wear attire.
For tops, I love adding a turtleneck to layer under jackets, sweaters and even blouses. It is a way to make more modern and really ideal if you live in a cold region. Pretty obsessed with this turtleneck sweater from Isabel Marant
Here are some other options for different price points, one under $150 and one under $25
For bottoms I have been loving the trouser look but for a more fashion forward look maybe try a wide leg trouser pant. I love the look of these Anna Quan pants:

For some other similar pants at other price points I found some similar one for $300 and one under $30.
| Anna Quan Blazer |
Would be so cute to pair any of those pants with a blazer and the Anna Quan pant has a beautiful coat to pair with it. The fit and button closure is unique and a modern approach to a suit and pant look.
Blazers are a go to for making a look feel fresh and fashionable for work but have been loving the look of adding a trench jacket over an outfit. This one from the Row is so stunning and looks so pretty over a dress or skirt.

It is a pretty penny so here are some other options with different price points. One for under $300 and another under $90.
A great addition to a work appropriate look is to have a fashionable bag when entering a meeting that you can easily fit a laptop, or notepad. This purse is stunning with the leather and resin handles. It has a unique shape to purse but it is deep enough to fit all the things.
Here are a couple other stunning handbags that would be perfect for work.
