4 Layered Workwear Looks For Fall
While most of us may live our best freelance lives in our favorite pair of leggings, every now and then a client wants you in-office for a brainstorming session or a networking event you can’t miss comes to town. As freelancers, your style is a direct representation of your personal brand, and every year when fall rolls around I overhear the same question: “How do I still look stylish for work when it’s cooler outside?”
Picking out my look for work during the fall months is an art. It’s so fun to concoct endless outfit combinations by simply swapping out one or two pieces. So when the temperatures start to drop, that’s when the real fun begins. Who doesn’t feel like an absolute boss when they slip on a leather jacket? Or feel like they can conquer any client meeting in a structured blazer?
I’m giving you the keys to layering success that will take you through the fall season. The best part? Each of these styles can be taken from the office right to happy hour.
Cue the Cardigan
Is there any situation where a cozy cardigan won’t make things better? Whether you’re traveling for work or headed to a lunch meeting, a cardigan is an easy layer for cooler days. Stick to a neutral palette with a pop of color in your accessories, or go bold while mixing patterns like leopard print and plaid.
On those mornings when you just need a little extra warmth, a trench coat never fails. I suggest investing in a great wool solid that you can play mix and match with. Playing with different shades of one color instantly creates glam factor. Try pairing your trench with a curve-hugging dress and over-the-knee boots for evening cocktails.

If you’re looking for a little more structure, the versatility of a good blazer can’t be beat. Whether it’s a classic solid or print, you can layer them over t-shirts, button down shirts, sweaters and more. Get inspired with pattern play - perfect over a tee or satin blouse for a night out!
