As much as we live for fall clothes, it definitely can be a challenge to make classic staples like cozy flannels, giant sweaters, and easy denim work at the office.
To help you get a handle on dressing for work when the weather starts to cool down, we’ve built out a week’s worth of looks to wear to the office from Monday through Friday—from an oversized knit and sharp culottes to start the week, and a perfect pair of flared jeans to end it.
Play with proportion by pairing an oversized sweater with cropped wide pants or culottes. Add black heels to make it office-ready.
