5 Pieces to Take Your Fall Work Wear Up a Notch

Ashley-Stewart-Faux-Suede-Foil-Moto-JacketA lot of changes have been going on around them and one of them (a new job) required a wardrobe upgrade. Trading in the daily jeans for work wear trousers wasn’t enough though. I still wanted to show off my fashionista persona within an office setting and if you’re like me, here’s what you need to look for:

Classic pieces with a little flare – from a bold color or print to a edgy detail or cut.

Check these babies out and you’ll see what I mean.

Trade in the blazer for this faux leather moto jacket. The cool thing about this one is it looks like a funky cardigan than a leather jacket, making it perfect for the office. $102, ashleystewart.com

But for those of you who are already feeling the chilled temps, there’s no reason why you can’t look cute and stay warm.

Trendy Office Wear You Need In Your Life

Over the past few weeks, my freelancing life has taken me out of my home office (and stretchy pants) and into a creative, office environment. The awesome part is that I get to do the writing I love to do but I have to admit was a bit of an adjustment. Besides having to leave the house everyday, my work wardrobe has drastically changed. The stuffy trousers and blazers I used to wear before just doesn’t have a place in my work life anymore. And I would get some strange looks if I rolled up in shorts and a tee.

So I had to do a major wardrobe overhaul and get some trendy, yet office appropriate clothes into my life. This fashion project is off to a fantastic start but the shopping itch is in full effect around here!

Just look at the fashion awesomeness I found!
