Wear to Work Styles

Getting work style that’s both fresh and profesh can be a challenge, but our favorite bloggers make the task seem effortless, and a few put together stellar looks using some of our hottest pieces for fall. Business types, take note.

The Trend: Pop Color Suiting

Already a sucker for well-tailored suit separates, blogger Annabelle Fleur also loves how easily this lipstick red jacket and pant transition from afternoon meetings to dinner. We love her touch of chevron-patterned shoes and jewelry.

The Trend: Casual Work Looks For Guys

Want to make the most of a loose dress code without looking sloppy? Follow the cues of Moti Ankari of The Metro Man. Start with an all-purpose blazer and button-up, then keep the jeans dark and the silhouette slim. Got it? Now try his advanced styling move of coordinating the tie with the sneakers.

As Saucy Glossie’s Lindsey Calla found, pairing our windowpane Columnist pant with an upscale moto jacket gives you office-friendly style that’s unexpected and more personal. With sneakers, the look also touches on the tomboy trend.

I Am Galla

The Trend: The Investment Suit

In his razor-sharp Photographer suit, blogger Adam Gallagher proves that it’s smart to spend a little more on something that’ll look good for years, and even little touches can keep investment buys up-to-date. Check out his patterned socks as Exhibit A.

Damsel In Dior

The Trend: Full Skirts For Work

On first impression, this retro-inspired skirt might seem too poufy for today’s power brokers. Jacey Duprie’s look shows how confident and sophisticated it can be with totally modern mules and the menswear influence of windowpane pattern and a tux jacket.
