It is post Labor Day weekend, and the summer months are officially drawing to a close. Fall is upon us and with the new season comes a few of our favorite things; colorful leaves, pumpkin spice, and FASHION WEEK! Fall is truly a time for change, so why not start at home with a few changes in your closet?
If you’re like most of us and you won’t be in attendance for New York, London, Milan, or Paris’ Fashion Weeks, do not worry. MAU is here to bring you a month’s worth of work place fashion faux pas, style guides, and much more! Join us as we take you on a virtual cat-walk the entire month of September. Let’s get this fashion-show on the road with four ways to incorporate your everyday clothes in your work wardrobe!
The start of a new season doesn’t mean you have to update your entire closet. There are ways to incorporate the pieces you wear every day and still manage to be “work-ready." Take a look at these awesome style tips and see if they would work at your workplace!
1. Leather Jackets
Gone are the days of leather jackets only being worn by bikers and rock stars. A leather jacket is a timeless piece worn by many these days. Yes, a leather jacket is always a great option for a weekend/casual look, but it can also be worn in the office. Pairing your leather jacket with a white button down shirt or a pencil skirt can take an ordinarily regular work outfit and give you an instant edge.
I know what you’re thinking, “There’s no way I could wear a t-shirt at work!” While this look may not work for every work setting, it is a nice change of pace to the standard business casual office wear. Try pairing a simple t-shirt with a blazer for a look that says casual and chic. If you’re more daring, or your workplace is more flexible, try this look with a graphic tee!
Whether your workplace is totally casual or strictly business there’s always a way to wear your denim pieces to work! Denim is such a versatile piece that just about everyone owns it. However, there is a right and wrong way to wear denim at work. (We’ll give you all the denim know how in next week’s blog!) Go ahead, give denim a try! With so many styles, colors, and cuts, the possibilities are endless.
4. Scarfs & Watches
Is it possible to usher in the Fall without the classic, seasonal scarf look? It’s finally time to pull the beloved accessory out of storage. By pairing your scarf with a watch you can pull of very chic look that translates well in or out of office. There are no limits to your self-expression. Scarfs and watches come in a variety of colors, patterns, and textures that allow you to express your personality while remaining in office guidelines.
