What to wear to work: A lesson in layering for fall

www.thatworkinglife.com

Welcome to that awkward time of the year where it's not warm enough to saunter around town in just a shift dress, but also not cold enough for a full on coat. 

The solution? 
Layers. 

But just how do you layer fashionably and appropriately for work? 


The one rule of thumb I stick with to avoid looking like a walking sack (save the hobo chic look for the weekend please) is to choose pieces with either (1) a similar color scheme or (2) similar textures or patterns. Here I chose to ground the outfit with a common (and seasonally appropriate) texture - tweed.

For the colder months, simply add tights, swap out the grey crew neck for a cashmere sweater, and heels for boots.
