Getting dressed for work can sometimes be such a struggle. You want to be put together, but comfortable, and also try out some of those new fashion trends. It can be a difficult balance at times.
I always worked in a fairly business casual environment meaning I could style up my jeans. Always a plus! But all of these ideas can easily be swapped with a slim work trouser (these are a favorite) for a similar look and feel.
Fall Office Outfit Tips
A few easy to recreate fall office outfits always include a few things. A great third piece and that can be a jacket or a cardigan.
They’re perfect for fall. Long boyfriend cardigans are always popular this time of year, but you can always opt for a great blazer, or a knitted moto jacket. A third piece like this completes any look even when you’re wearing jeans.

Fall office outfits should also lean into fall colors! Think jewel tones, and darker pants and heavier fabrics. And when it comes to your shoes, opt for closed toe and something in suede! Leave those peep toe heels and sandals in your closet until spring!
How To Dress Up Your Jeans For The Office
Start With Good Jeans
One of my go to tricks anytime I have to be put together for a meeting or presentation but I don’t have to wear a suit, is to dress up my jeans. I personally love to grab my darkest jeans, solid indigo and dark blue, or black or grey. You definitely want to stay away from anything distressed or ripped.
I really love Ann Taylor for good work jeans. They usually keep in mind that people shopping at their store are looking for business casual outfits. Their denim is never ripped, usually always has a hem and come in lots of different darker washes for the office.
Add A Great Blazer
The best trick to even updating jeans a tee and sneakers, is to add a great blazer. A good fitting blazer will pull any look together in a pinch. Whether you prefer a longer blazer, or a more traditional one that hits at the hip, choose what you like and just make sure it fits well.
Throw On A Pump
Adding a pretty pump will make your jeans look professional instantly. I personally love these baby blue suede ones from Taryn Rose and they’re insanely comfortable. It’s also a fun way to add some color to your outfit as well.
But having a good pair of nude or black pumps in your wardrobe is essential. And if you do want something a little more fun and exciting, a leopard print is always stylish but still a great neutral and won’t be too distracting for a business casual outfit.
