How To Layer Fall Fashion For The Office

While we all know that layering is the key to dressing warm for fall, it may be a bit difficult to pull it off with your office fashion. After all, most professional pieces are crisp and tailored for a professional look and layering them may make you look more like a snowman than a fashionista. But we’ve got a few tips that will help you layer warmly and still look fashionable for the office.

First Layer

Start off with a great base and the rest of your look will fall into place. A sleeveless, tailored dress is the perfect basic for any time of the year and is easy to layer with just about anything. You can even re-use your summer maxi dresses to great effect. Elementz B-Slim Sleeveless Dress, $13

Second layer
The second layer is all about warmth. This is where you put all the fabulous knits that are trending this season. A v-neck cardigan can be worn over anything and adds a professional touch. You can also try a vest worn over your base that will give you a particularly cozy feel. Trina Turk Kaiya Crop Knit Sweater Vest, $173

Third Layer

Mixing and matching lengths is important if you want your layers to look chic. Use your top layer to give you another dimension in your office fashion. A longer blazer adds length in all the right places and makes your layered office look complete. BCX Cuffed Boyfriend Blazer, $40
