What to Wear to Work this Fall

September 27, 2016

How often do wake up and ask yourself, “What am I going to wear to work?” Having a closet filled with a great 9-to-5 wardrobe makes those early mornings so much easier. Whether you spend your day in a creative environment or a corporate office, the right work clothes can make you even more inspired to get the job done. And shopping for your workday clothes at Style Encore really shows your business sense. Why? Because you pay 70% less than the original retail prices.

With autumn quickly approaching, now is the perfect time to refresh your closet with a stellar selection of affordable, gently used clothes and accessories. Here are a few key pieces we think can really enhance your career look for fall:

A-Line Dress

An A-line dress is a work essential. This fuss-free silhouette is so effortless, we wouldn’t be surprised if it becomes the most-reached-for item in your closet. Designed with long sleeves, short sleeves or somewhere in between, this office-appropriate dress works beautifully with a feminine sweater or blazer. What you wear underneath depends on your office environment, and the weather. Opaque hosiery, printed tights, or bare legs are all fashion-savvy options.

Flared-Leg Pants

Flared-leg pants are flattering, comfortable and appropriate for most work environments. Opting for black is anything but boring as it instantly pairs with blazers, blouses and sweaters of any color. And let’s not forget about what to wear below your ankles. Flared-leg pants partner well with pumps, booties and flats. Easy-to-wear and versatile, these hard-working pants look great for after- office outings, too!


A polished work wardrobe always includes a blazer. Fashion-forward and feminine, today’s blazers have experienced a style evolution that no longer makes them seem so stuffy. These versatile toppers tie together any workday look, whether you choose jeans and a tee for a casual environment, or trousers and a blouse in a more formal setting. Blazers can also double as outerwear for chilly fall commutes to and from the office.  


Without a doubt, we put blouses in the category of workwear essentials. With an amazing array of designs, colors and fabrics, selecting a super-versatile blouse is an absolute no-brainer as you refresh your fall wardrobe. If your business plan includes layering, the tried-and-true blouse is up for the job. The perfect partner to blazers, sweaters, and scarves, a blouse can stand alone or work well with others.


The right coat does more than keep you warm and cozy. It ties your entire look together flawlessly. The most wearable option for your work wardrobe is a long and lean belted number or a 3/4-length silhouette. These go-with-everything coats are sure to make great business partners.

Refreshing your work wardrobe for fall doesn’t mean you have to spend an entire month’s salary. At least, not when you shop at Style Encore. Stop in to a Style Encore store near you and discover an amazing selection of work-ready options waiting for you!
