• Simple Fall Fashion For the Office

    Oct 03, 2019

    It's inevitable -- as the seasons change, so does your wardrobe. Instead of spending a fortune on new clothes, invest in just a few key pieces that you can rely on as fashion staples. Here are four items that are must-haves for the office this fall.

    Black Blazer

    A fitted blazer is probably one of the most versatile items you could own. You can use it to dress up even the most casual outfit, like a dress or even a pair of jeans. For a super chic look, try a well-cut blazer with blue jeans or dress pants and a crisp white t-shirt. It will look great with flats or a pair of high heels. If you prefer a different blazer style, look for an oversized blazer or a long-line blazer.

    Statement Bag

    If you’re going to invest in one item this fall, it should be a statement bag. Adding a cool purse to your wardrobe is a great way to make even the simplest outfit look chic. Whether you’re wearing an all-black suit or dress pants and a t-shirt, a statement bag will really take your outfit to the next level. Keep in mind that you don’t necessarily need to go for a bright or loud colour. Instead, focus on interesting shapes and patterns. Hudson’s Bay and H&M have great bag selections.

    Long-Sleeved Dress

    A long-sleeved dress is the perfect fall outfit and a great look for the office. It’s also the ideal outfit to transition from summer to fall. There are so many styles and fabrics to choose from this season. A-line dresses with collars are very comfortable and look sophisticated. A pencil dress with flared sleeves is stylish and warm. A midi dress is versatile and looks good on everyone. Whatever your taste, you can’t go wrong with a long-sleeved dress.

    Kitten Heels

    Kitten heels are great for a few reasons -- they’re comfortable, chic and remind us of the ‘90s. But seriously, if you want versatility, this is one shoe style you need to own. They look great with a slip dress, jeans and a trench coat, and pretty much any dress style you can think of.

    With these four staple items, you’ll be ready to conquer fall fashion and impress everyone at the office. Happy shopping from Timbercreek

    Billowy Blouses

    White is in, light, reflective, and airy, white helps hide sweat, and keep you cool. Billowy blouses with puff-sleeve trim are a hip and practical option, while classic button downs are cooling and look killer. Going big helps allow for plenty of airflow on humid summer days. Learn more.

    Wide Leg Pants

    Cropped wide-leg pants are an easy, trendy, and practical answer to both looking sophisticated and professional in summer. Go for whites, tans, and neutrals to stave off sun and heat. Read more.

    Pastels and Neutrals

    Short Sleeves

    For men a women alike, short sleeve button ups are priceless in summer. Both patterned and plain variants are popular, and offer much needed cooling qualities in the heat of summer at work. See more.
