As we slowly wave goodbye to our sun-kissed Summer, Fall has finally arrived. Fall is an exciting time where pastels, frozen yogurt, summery dresses and sandals turn into rich colors like burgundy, Pumpkin Spice Latté, cozy coats and boots... However, it is also a time where we struggle to look stylish and warm while avoiding to look bulky.
So, how can I keep stylish and warm in the office? You might ask. To help inspire, here are some tips on how to keep stylish and warm for your officewear this fall/winter.
Hedy Reversible Knit Jacket - A Perfect Alternative to Your Chanel Jacket
1. Layer a Turtleneck
The best thing about Fall and Winter is that you can layer almost anything (even in the office). Try layering a thin turtleneck under your blazer, blouse or even a dress to boost up coziness while staying in style. Here are some inspirations:
Tip: Try to stick with turtlenecks that are made with thinner fabrics like wool or jersey to prevent bulkiness.
Layer under a blazer, a dress, or a blouse
2. Stylish Stockings
As seen in Chanel's Pre-Fall 2016 collection. Worn under a fitted pencil skirt, lace stockings (or collants) add just enough spice to your Fall office look. However, if your office is a bit more conservative, plain black or dark colored ones will work just fine. Check out the following looks and comment your favorite.
Tip: When choosing a pencil skirt, you want to make sure the length and fit are just right. Office-appropriate, but not too baggy.
The GLENDA reversible pencil skirt is an excellent choice. It is the perfect length that hits right above your knees and you can even reverse it and rock 2 different looks on the same day. For example, the black side for during the day and the red for a romantic evening! (Click here to learn more about Glenda).
3. Stylish & Versatile Scarf
Scarfs are great because they come in so many different sizes and patterns. No matter what you are wearing, a great scarf always adds a nice touch to your outfit. It is definitely a must-have item to keep stylish and cozy in the office. Here are some inspirations we got from a cool scarf company that shows how versatile a scarf can be.
