7 Smart Casual Outfits You Can Wear To Work While Waiting For Fall


7 Smart Casual Outfits You Can Wear To Work While Waiting For Fall

As Fall fast approaches, our urge to start wearing fall clothes grows stronger. Mine definitely did this week. But at the same time, its still not that cold to start wearing sweaters and layers. Specially together. 

Sharing 7 easy to put together fall inspired layered outfits that you can wear to work now while you wait for fall to arrive. These business casual outfits are easy to layer on and layer off when it gets too hot during the day or gets cooler as you head back home. 

So, lets get started.

What I am covering in this post:

Classic Blazer + Colored Pants

This is a failproof fall outfit formula that you can never go wrong with. Black blazer is a staple is most of our closet. But if you don’t own one, checkout the link below where I have a great relaxed fit one that will work for you for years.

Just swapping your blue jeans or any other work pants with a fall specific colored bottoms would instantly transform the outfit for fall!

These pants are more like cigarette pants, so they are great for staying comfortable all day but at the same time with a fall specific color, you can instantly feel fall ready.

Burnt Orange Slim Pants

Perfect color for fall that will go with any darker tone as well as white sweaters and tops.

Midi Skirt + Plaid Blazer

Longer skirts tend to give us more of the cooler weather vibe. And a good satin skirt in a fall color like this one which is in wine color looks completely fall ready.

I love the simple solid style but what is so flattering about this skirt is that its flared style, so you can also wear sweaters with it when it actually gets cooler.

A good plaid blazer always brings in the fall vibes and also some texture and personality to this fall business casual outfit. And a gray color is really versatile and will go with everything.

Satin Flare Skirt

Looks so fall ready and versatile for any special occasion as well as for everyday as well.

Leather Pants + Loafer Mules

If you like classic outfits and button down shirts, switching your tailored pants with leather pants also creates a great fall look for work. 

I know they can be intimidating, but faux leather pants have come a long way. A good quality one will not only look good, but they also will last you a long time. 

The one I am wearing are more than a year old. And with loafer mules this outfit looks more sophisticated and elevated. 

Faux Leather pants

Adds a luxurious touch to any basic outfit and will keep you warm from fall to winter

Midi Skirt + Plaid Blazer

Striped T shirt and pleated skirt is a summer outfit formula that looks good and also great look for work. This is also a summer outfit that you can easily transition to fall by wearing a simple lightweight fall coat. 

Its a coincidence that I also have a pumpkin colored coat, but that’s not required. A good light weight wool coat that looks structured.

While this outfit might have looked more casual, the coat made it more work appropriate and the ankle boots complete this fall look.

Structured Wool Coat

Not only adds style but much needed fall color to any outfit. And this also becomes a great statement coat that you will love for years. 

Midi Skirt + Plaid Blazer

The plaid blazer in this outfit is transforming this simple white T shirt and leather pants outfit to a more elevated and work appropriate look that you can literally wear with different colors of T shirt and create brand new outfits. 

The pattern on the blazer also balances out the leather material and tones it down to create a sophisticated and elevated look. 

And with loafer mules you add more work appropriate detail to your outfit. And honestly this pair of footwear is so versatile that you will never stop wearing them.

Plaid Blazer

Relaxed fit so it can easily be worn on top of sweaters as well. The detailed plaid pattern adds fall vibes to any outfit you wear it with.

Midi Skirt + Plaid Blazer

A lightweight cardigan and specially a V neck one will look great as a top itself and paired with tailored joggers makes for a great business casual work outfit.

Cardigans are great for layering, but if you have a lightweight one, you can easily wear them with any bottoms to create a fall appropriate outfit which will not be too hot. 

And I added a pair of slingback pumps that are more comfortable  than regular pumps, and add a bit of work structure to this complete look.

You can also create the same outfit with black ankle pants.

V Neck Cardigan

Lightweight which can be worn by itself as a top or as a light layer when you want to feel cozy.

Midi Skirt + Plaid Blazer

If you still like to wear your jeans and t shirt outfit even in fall, the by adding this really casual yet structured piece as your third layer will complete this fall smart casual work look.

Shirt jackets have gained so much popularity that you can literally find them in every budget. 

But this piece of olive green one looks perfect for fall and also has a belt that you can cinch in your waist to add more structure.

I added white leather sneakers that look casual but also more elevated. White footwear are a great way to elevate your fall dark tone outfits.

Shirt Jacket

Perfect fall casual layer that looks sophisticated yet cozy. And elevates any casual outfit with its collar detail.

Are you working from home or headed back to office. What is your work dress code like now post pandemic? And hope this post helped to come up with some easy fall transitional looks.
