While perusing Instagram and various websites, I came across a few great finds in fabulous fall colors. These gems can be worn to the office but are versatile enough to be worn to weekend brunch or your kids’ soccer game.
I often get asked, how can I wear “this” sweater? It’s viewed as being too big or bulky for the office, essentially too casual. I say, you can dress anything up to make it office appropriate (unless it’s a backless sweater that exposes just a bit too much to be considered office appropriate…in which case…that one’s reserved for after hours).
These sweaters are relatively inexpensive (under $100) and offer versatility. Wear them with trousers or a skirt (long or short…doesn’t matter) and turn these seemingly “casual” sweaters into a very cute, work appropriate look.
Below I've provided two looks for each sweater - office chic and polished casual!
Ribbed boat neck sweater $19.90
Knit Off-the-shoulder sweater $20.61 (no longer available)
Not into the sweaters above...or they're sold out? No worries, I have a few other options that may tickle your fancy.
These are just a few alternatives or suggestions but...there is a plethora of other options that will match your budget that are at your fingertips with a simple Google search. What did we do before Google?
All of these sweaters can be dressed up to create a business chic look and then easily transition to after hours drinks with the girls or whatever fun fall adventure you are embarking on (which may or may not include a Starbucks PSL...).
I hope these simple ideas will give you inspiration to transform your ordinary casual sweater to be an office chic look.
