Back To Work Fashion Ideas

This is a collection of back to work fashion ideas & the best work wear. Put your best foot forward and look more professional every day. Your (virtual) image consultant and personal stylist, aka me, will help you look polished and put together all week long!

There is something magical about autumn: The crisp morning air, darker nights, colorful foliage… and fashion. It’s my favorite time of the year and I always feel myself coming back to life after the long lazy summer days.

I love dressing myself darker shades because they look infinitely more chic than the juicy summer tones that often make people look like they are trying too hard or are simply living in a coconut scented fantasy.

Wrap me up in cool grey, stylish navy, earthy brown, buttery beige, powdery muted pastels and edgy black. I love these stylish work fashion ideas and I hope they inspire you to dress up to work, even if you are still working from home.

Best Elements Of Autumn Style

I am wild about combining different textures for interesting looks, for example crisp cotton with tweed or silk with leather, that are both my signature styles.

There is something very comforting about being more covered. This hasn’t got so much to do with age. I just find it more elegant and stylish.

I already fell hard for fall fashion when I was a teenager. Every September I am delighted to start wearing my black opaque tights again. I love to wrap up in cozy cardigans and chic ponchos.

Versatility Of Autumn Fashion

My unconditional love for autumn fashion reached it’s current height when I worked in retail. At the shops autumn is still a very important season.

We tend to invest more in our autumn wardrobes because it’s mostly work wear and has a longer life span than summer fashion has.

Also in the autumn we buy coats and boots that tend to be more expensive than summer sandals for example. When we are going to invest more we want to be sure that we are buying the right things.

This was, and still is, a wonderful challenge for me. Even now as my own boss when buying for summer I am already thinking how the item could translate into fall or even spring. This way my clients get more for their money and that is a wonderful thing!
