Greetings, friends! Welcome back to 26 Days of Fall Fashion. Today I’m tackling a workwear look.
This is more of a formula than an outfit because a lot of these pieces have sold out. I used to stress out about that, but I’ve decided to just go with it and link to similar pieces. Fortunately in this case, you can recreate this look in a myriad of ways with a few wardrobe basics.
This look was inspired by the colors in this gorgeous scarf. I really wish it were still in stock because it’s a beautiful piece to add to your fall wardrobe. From there, the rest of outfit pretty much fell together — white cami, taupe pants, burgundy sweater, and grey pumps.
I like the color of this cardigan, but I don’t love the styling, to be honest. It’s kind of bulky, and I feel like it makes me look top heavy. This is the medium, and I styled the same one in grey last week in a small, which I think fits better. At any rate, they appear to be sold out this morning. When I put this post together, there were a few left.
A burgundy cardigan is a great piece to have in your fall wardrobe, so here are a few more I like. For a high quality piece, this Halogen wool & cashmere cardigan is gorgeous but spendy. Nordstrom seems to be running low on burgundy cardigans and I didn’t find any at LOFT, but Macy’s has a few. This ruffle sleeve cardigan is really cute, and I love this cashmere one, but again with the spendy. This ribbed duster looks nice but the one review isn’t so stellar. Honestly I’m not coming up with a whole lot of great options. Hopefully as fall gets into full swing, there will be more.
These pants are from Gap. They’re the bi-stretch skinny ankle pants, and they come in a ton of colors. This is brindle, which is a great neutral taupe. It leans beige or grey, depending on what else you’re wearing. They’re a nice workwear piece — flattering and comfortable. Also, you can get 40% off with code HAPPY!
For size reference, I’m wearing the 6, and they fit a lot better 5-8 pounds ago. I could barely get them buttoned to take these pictures. Ooops! (I put on some weight over the summer.) All that to say, they’re pretty much true to size, or if you’re in between, size up.
Let’s discuss these shoes. The nice thing about shoes is, they still fit even when you gain 5 pounds.
These pumps were sent to me from ECCO Shoes, and I cannot recommend them highly enough if you’re in need of practical, comfortable pumps. They are AMAZINGLY comfortable, plus they look great on. If you have finicky feet or are in need of comfortable pumps for fall, you need to try these. I also love this versatile color. You can also find these shoes at 6pm.com (on sale!) and at The Walking Company.
Finally, I carried a taupe crossbody to blend in with the look. I snagged mine on a clearance sale, but this crossbody is the same mushroom color with gold hardware; the only difference is the tassel and the suede accents.
I love the size of this bag for when I don’t need to carry everything. It just fits my full-size wallet, lipstick, face powder, Kleenex purse pack, iPhone 7 Plus, and sunglasses. It’s nice for going out to dinner and church on Sundays.
I feel like this look would be suitable for a lot of office environments. If the scarf is too bulky or impractical to wear all day, you can always wear a long necklace underneath and take the scarf off when you’re indoors. You can also swap out the pumps for ballet flats or loafers if that better suits your needs. In fact, ECCO has a nice selection of comfortable flats as well.
Be sure to visit Cyndi and see the fall outfit she’s styling today.
