office chic

office chic what to wear to the office this fall wide leg pants, black turtleneck, celine box bag office chic with express clothing fall fashion for the office celine caty sunglasses

I have a soft spot for office chic. Perhaps it’s because I’ve never had a typical corporate job, but there’s something so stylish about professional attire.

My first retail job was at Banana Republic and I very clearly remember wearing wide leg pants, a white button up and a suit vest overtop with heels. I wished that I had the type of job to warrant that kind of attire on a daily basis. I’m sure those of you who are actual corporate/office goers are rolling your eyes, but let me tell you, the grass is always greener.

One of my favourite office trend this fall is the wide leg pant. These ones from Express literally feel like pyjamas (but certainly don’t look it) and make your legs look a mile long when worn with heels. Perfect.

How do you feel about office chic attire? Let me know on Instagram or in the comments ๐Ÿ™‚

    absolutely stunning, Jill! I’m a huge fan of classic wide leg trousers too. All black is always a fabulous idea. You look gorgeous.

    Office chic is my favourite type of clothing (by type of occasion i.e. casual, going out etc.) I wish I had more clothing items to wear office chic on a daily basis (dressed up or down depending) but my closet just isn’t equipped for it yet! Love the wide leg pant. I’m kind of hesitant about the wide leg because I fuller hips and butt on a petite frame so I worry I will just look extra wide lmao. You look amazing ๐Ÿ™‚ Love the whole thing. I don’t usually go all black – because I like contrasting light and dark as well as patterns vs no patterns – but I do love the turtleneck, bag, and shoes ๐Ÿ™‚ Turtlenecks are just so darn sophisticated for a sweater! Sleek bag? Can’t go wrong with black and gold hardware. As for the heel? Of course ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I am in love with this whole look! I would like to know where you bought the pieces you are wearing from. Jewelry, shoes, trousers, turtleneck. I can’t wait to share this with my daughter. She is new at the blogging thing. xonthechic. But I am a shopper when I see what I like. Very happy to come across you. Thanks.
