Happy Friday! It was a short week for the worker bees since Monday was Labor Day. What did you all do last weekend? I went to a barbecue, met up with some old friends, and caught up with new friends! 
For this week’s Friday Favorites, we’re bringing you 3 Fall Office Trends & How To Wear Them! Read on to find out what they are and how you can rock them this season.

1- Sleeveless Blazers

So we’ve seen the sleeveless blazer for the summer, but what about transitioning it through the seasons? There’s plenty of ways to do this, but this version has all of my favorite pieces; a mock neck sweater, a midi skirt, and suede heels! To pull off a sleeveless blazer for the office during the fall season, simply layer a short-sleeve or long-sleeve sweater beneath it. I love how it looks with a mock neck or turtleneck! 

 

 2- Printed Ankle Pants

I’m not much of a pants girl- I definitely favor skirts and dresses- but I’ve been crazy about these slim fit ankle pants! Now for the fall season, I’m seeing these everywhere in bold colors and prints. My inner prepster cannot resist this plaid pair! So, how can we wear these? It’s simple! Keep the rest of your look pretty basic with solid colors. You can pull colors out of the pattern for your look like I did here or just go with safe neutrals. The choice is yours to make!

 3- Midi Slit Pencil Skirts

I’ve really been loving these midi pencil skirts and now for this season, I’ve been seeing them with slits. Typically a slit sounds a little too ‘sexy’ for the office but because of the length, this trend gets my stamp of approval! This is a fabulous trend, especially for a tall and slim figure. I decided to play with proportions by pairing it with a fitted turtleneck and a loose cape coat. 

What do you think of sleeveless blazers, printed ankle pants, and midi slit pencil skirts for the office this fall? How would you style them?
