And It Only Cost Me: 10 Fall Workwear Staples Under $100

  • Copy by: Jennifer Lake

Why does finding work appropriate attire feel like a full-time job in and of itself? Some pieces feel too casual while others are best suited for a dinner date. There has to be a better way!

No matter what your career, everyone deserves to feel their best from 9-5. Here are 10 pieces to take you from desk-to-dinner without getting a call from HR (or the fashion police, for that matter).


Pointed Lace-Up Ballerinas: $49.99

Lace-up flats are one of the hottest shoe trends for fall. This option comes in a neutral color making them versatile for work. Pair these with a shift dress, button-down blouse and skirt, or jeans.


Colorful Planner: $36.95

Organization is key in any job, so why not pick a planner that keeps your schedule looking good? This planner includes yearly, weekly, and monthly views, as well as a space for notes and special dates.

Reversible Faux Leather Tote & Wristlet: $48

A carryall tote bag is a great investment for work, and I love this faux leather, reversible version, which fits all of the essentials (i.e. laptop, notepad and pen, phone, etc.) while also leaving room for your personal goodies (i.e. gym clothes, comfy shoes, etc.). It’s like two bags in one!


Leather Watch: $45

Watches are fashionable and functional. Sure, your phone can tell you what time it is but why not keep track of your day in style? This versatile watch is easy to dress up or dress down.


Soft Drape Wide Leg Pants: $98

Fall is all about embracing the wide leg pant. Pair these with a tucked-in silk shirt, chambray button-down, and a statement necklace for sleek and sophisticated look.


Asymmetrical Stripe Top: $59.95

The colorblock stripes on this shirt break up your outfit in a simple yet stylish way. Wear it with skinny black pants to balance your look!


Bold Striped Midi: $44.97

Bold stripes add instant edge to any outfit. This midi version is polished, and allows you to make a statement in a professional way!

Lottie Sleeveless Side Split Textured Duster: $40

This duster style jacket or vest is a hot trend for cooler months. They’re a perfect layering piece to any outfit! Opt for a neutral color like ivory, tan, black, navy, or gray to maximize the amount of times that you wear them.


Long Sleeve Shift: $30 


A charming shift dress is an easy staple for your work wardrobe. Add a blazer and accessories to complete the look or wear it over a sleek turtleneck on a chilly day.


Playful Button-Down: $42.42

I love that this shirt is work appropriate, but has some playful details like the pleated belted sleeves. Button-down shirts don’t need to be mundane! Shop for items that have unique details—embellishments on the pockets, sleeves, or a unique color!
