When it comes to work, I always find fall the most difficult time of the year to dress for. For starters, I work in a casual environment and if I’m not careful, I fall into a never-ending cycle of only wearing t-shirts and sneakers to work. And there is the itch to wear cozy chunky sweaters but sweating my ass off on my commute. Too few layers, I freeze during the day. The struggle, right?!

But alas, I have found an outfit that is the perfect balance of casual, comfortable, and work appropriate.

By mixing these office-approved SPANX with a short-sleeve top (the longer sleeves are game-changing!) and my favorite wear-everywhere sneakers, I feel like I have my shit together while still not looking too “dressed up” at the office. If you work in an office that sneakers aren’t acceptable, I highly recommend swapping out your trusting Converse for this pair of pumps – perfect for work and so comfortable!

What to Keep In Mind

When dressing casually for work, whether you’re in a casual environment or a corporate office, keep your company culture in mind. Can you get away with wearing bright prints or are solid, neutral colors more appropriate? If you need to pick up a few new pieces, always play with the basics. Your favorite structured tee can easily be dressed up with a great blazer, a pair of slacks, and a fun slingback. If your office allows jeans, pair your favorite pair of denim with a classic button-up (or blouse!) and loafers for a polished but casual look.
