Hit snooze, peel yourself out of bed, stare into your closets for eons trying to figure out what to wear: Sound familiar? To make our lives (and yours) easier, we put together five fall-ready outfit formulas that help weekday mornings go a little smoother.
TURTLENECK + SLIP DRESS + STRAPPY PUMPS
The silk dress you bought for summer? Re purpose it for fall by layering a turtleneck underneath. Step into a pair of modest pumps (read: no towering stilettos) and you won’t even feel the need to kick them off under your desk.
PLAID SHIRT + TAILORED CORDUROYS
It just wouldn’t feel like fall if we didn’t work a plaid shirt into our weekday outfit rotation. The same goes for corduroy. Opt for high-waisted pants and French-tuck your shirt for a polished (not lumberjack-y) look.
PUFF-SLEEVE SWEATER + A-LINE SKIRT
The sweater silhouette of the season is hands-down the puff-sleeve. This one gets extra cool points for the bold, surprisingly flattering hue. Pair it with a sleek, black A-line skirt to balance the proportions and you’ll almost feel like you’re still in your PJs.
CREWNECK SWEATER + CULOTTES + SNAKESKIN BOOTIES
A cozy crewneck sweater, flattering culottes and comfy booties? What’s not to love. We’re upping the stylish factor for white-on-white, because we’re firm believers in breaking that “no white after Labor Day” rule.
MIDI DRESS + WHITE BOOTIES
A midi is always work appropriate, but a plaid pattern and on-trend white booties make it your go-to for fall. And it doesn’t even feel out of place for Friday happy hour.
