Trend We Love For Fall: Business Casual For Work and Play
ICYMI, early-2000s style has been having a major comeback in the past couple of years. Well, we're here to report that the latest — and unlikeliest — addition to the throwback trend is the revival of business-casual chic.
Work meets werk with flattering cropped trousers, curve-hugging sweater dresses, and stylish blazers. These are the kinds of transformable pieces that are designed to adapt to your on-the-go lifestyle, because who has the time to change clothes when your daily schedule includes work, a happy-hour drinks date, and dinner with your squad?
We rounded up some of our favorite business-casual pieces to shop this fall, along with some styling tips so you'll be the most stylish one in the room — whether you're at the office or the hottest restaurant in town.
Old Navy High-Waisted Pixie Straight Ankle Pants
Your search for work pants that check every box is over. The bestselling Old Navy High-Waisted Pixie Straight Ankle Pants ($45) are chic, comfortable, and flattering on every body type. Dress them up with heels, or opt for a funkier look with chunky loafers.
Old Navy High-Waisted Split-Front Pixie Skinny Pants
Add some flair to your office wear with the Old Navy High-Waisted Split-Front Pixie Skinny Pants ($45). These trousers are as versatile and wearable as your most basic black work pants, but the split hem lends them a high-fashion edge.
Reformation Tenore Cashmere Sweater Dress
Throw it back to the late '90s and early 2000s with a long-sleeved sweater midi dress, like the Reformation Tenore Cashmere Sweater Dress ($328) in Merlot. This piece is a perfect balance of sexy and sophisticated, especially when paired with knee-high heeled boots.
Old Navy Soft-Brushed Oversized Blazer
A boxy blazer, like the Old Navy Soft-Brushed Oversized Blazer ($80), is a business-casual essential. Wear this jacket to the office with crisp denim or for a Friday night out with a thrifted slip minidress and boots.
Vince Hand Knit Twisted Cable Shell Sweater
We love the mossy-brown color of the Vince Hand Knit Twisted Cable Shell Sweater ($365) for fall. Style it for the daytime with billowing trousers and patent-leather Mary Janes or a satin midi skirt and heels at night.
