{Fashion Monday} Fall Work Outfit Ideas

Fall work outfit ideas is a post based on items I have recently purchased and been creating looks for.

I can’t believe today is the last Monday of the month, even though I have been away for two weeks. When you’re away on holiday, all of a sudden the month starts to move really quickly. I felt like just last Friday I was preparing for my holiday to Johannesburg and now I am already back. Time sure does fly fast when you’re having fun and fun I certainly had in South Africa.

Whilst in Johannesburg, I did make a number of purchases which led me to create these outfit ideas. Regular readers know how much I love putting outfits together even though fall is not my favourite season. I am one person who absolutely hates layering but have to because I would freeze to death otherwise. When I was thinking of how I would dress my new colourful trousers for work, I thought I share some of my fall work outfit ideas.

Fall Work Outfit Ideas

As mentioned, I made a couple of purchases whilst I was holidaying in South Africa and couldn’t wait to show them off at work. The first pair of trousers I bought was the pink trouser from unknown brand but regardless I loved how it looked when paired with a loose blue top. Since fall season is upon us I figured for work I would add ankle boots, a warm MAC coat and minimal accessories.

For the second outfit, it’s another light pink trouser which I felt paired with a simple long-sleeved shirt with strips would do the trick. As much as I love keeping my outfits simple, pairing this outfit is light pink heels was what came to mind and I love it.

The third outfit is totally out of my comfort zone, I hardly have this colour in my wardrobe. I do love yellow like the next person but hardly wear it. My auntie on the other had loves yellow and it was nice to see how she pairs it. I took inspiration and added a yellow pair of trouser. The long-sleeved blouse screamed to be paired with the yellow trouser outfit. I choose to be even more bold and added a pair of yellow heels and I think it works.

Though fall is so not my season, I have had fun creating these fall work outfit ideas. So far I have worn the first out twice, entering October I will be daring the yellow outfit.

What do you think of my fall work outfit ideas? Do you have such colours in your wardrobe? Do you ever go bold with your colours in fall?

  • Thanks, I too I am loving Autumn fashion

  • I love all the pastel shades you’ve gathered here! My favourite item is the nude coloured boots 🙂

    • Yea!!! Thanks Laura

  • Oooh the pink and blue combinations are gorgeous – wouldn’t have thought about pink trousers but they look lovely in both the outfits you’ve put together. Impressive.

    • Thanks, I was the same too until I tried them on in the shop and I knew I had to have them

  • Anthea

    Gorgeous clothes. I’m a big fan of all the pink hues (a new colour for me) they seem to go with everything and all seasons

    • Thanks Anthea, yes I am loving the pink hues too

  • Bethany Naismith

    I love the idea of dressing up for work but as I’m a chef and a freelance remote writer I never need to dress up!

    • Though this is more for work, I think anytime one has the chance to dress up they should

  • i love everything u picked. The colours are warm and perfect for autumn.

  • You’ve got a lovely selection of outfits here! I’m grateful that I just have to wear scrubs to work, I couldn’t handle picking out an outfit for work every morning!

    • Awww bless and thanks

  • Tanya Brannan

    I absolutely love that Balmain blue ruffled blouse. Unfortunately I have to wear uniform for work so don’t have to organise a fall wardrobe. The shoes are pretty fabulous too!

    • Thanks Tanya, I must admit I sometimes miss having a uniform for work but on the other hand I love being in control of my outfits

  • Kara

    I love the stripey blouse, sadly I don’t need to dress up for work

  • What a great selection! I love the pink trousers paired with those gorgeous boots!

    • I know right, its perfect lol.

  • Clairejustineo

    I love all your picks, especially both blue blouses and the pink heels 🙂

    • Thanks so much, I love them too

  • Hannah Heartss ❄️⛄️

    Love those pink heels, would brighten up any outfit!

    • Pink does theat in the right conditions

  • I’m confused, you’d work out in the clothes in the pic?

    • Hahaha no love, they are work clothes and these are my ideas of how I am wearing/styling them

  • WonderfullyBookish

    Those colours look so nice together! I’m lucky though that I work from home freelance so I can wear anything I want 😀

    • Thanks and yes that’s the beauty of WFH, I do it once/twice a week too but majority of the time I have to go into the office

  • I am so happy Autumn is here. I love Autumn fashion. The pieces here are so stylish.

    • Thanks Stella, I am more of a summer person

  • I pretty much wear black all the time so I definitely need to inject some colour like this into my wardrobe x

    • That is so me hence why I have been slowly but surely injecting colours in my wardrobe.

  • Kathryn

    I wish I worked somewhere where I could wear smart clothing as these are some gorgeous outfits xx

  • Beautyqueenuk

    I love the use of yellow within your collage, the pink bag however was the one to catch my eye x

    • Thanks Rachel, I loved playing around with these wardrobe pieces

  • Little Steps

    I do love your choices, especially the blues and creams 😉 Just shows I’m not a fan of bold colours, but it’s just a personal choice and I don’t see anything wrong if others want to go bold in Autumn 😉

    • Absolutely nothing wrong with bold colours in Autumn and thanks

  • everinmay

    I love that you have include colour, I just bought a periwinkle blue nail polish because I just love the icy tone of it for winter when everyone else is doing vampy nails! I love the bangles! xx

    • I bet the nail polish will look amazing, I too try to go bright than vampy look

  • Jenni Grainger

    I love these choices. The colours are beautiful x

  • I love your choices, I do try to go out of my comfort zone at times but the fall back to my normal safe clothes. I do love the boots and bags are my downfall these are gorgeous x

    • Thanks hun, I think its normal for out to venture out a bit but then return to our safe zone.

  • Good post this! I wish I was brave enough to try different things when it comes to clothes! It’s great to hear you went outside of your comfort zone and liked how it looked!

    • Thanks, I have been slowing working my way outside my comfort zone and most of the time its paying off
