The 5 Key Workwear Trends for Fall 2019


Now that we’re well into fall, if you haven’t already made some updates to your closet, you’re probably ready to! While not all fall trends are appropriate for work, we’ve rounded up a few that you can easily incorporate into any work environment. Here’s our top 5 workwear trends for Fall 2019.

Workwear Trend No. 1: Dark Florals

Unlike pastel florals, which are perfect for spring and summer, dark florals are a bit moodier and perfect for fall and winter. There’s a lot of great dark florals showing up this season, especially in dresses.
