Fall Office Wardrobe Essentials

As fall is slowly taking the seasons’ stage, Carolina and I cannot seem to wonder why we always have a hard time letting go of summer outfits and still trying to use as many of our summer items in various fall outfits. We might just be melancholic about the fact that summer is over and our tanned skin is still showing, and we think might not be the only ones!

Whether we’ve been layering summer pieces in various mixes and creating versatile transition fall looks, by just adding a coat or jacket for extra warmth, sometimes I think we have to just accept that an fall overhaul is needed, and we need to step into a new season!

We also know that perfectly pulled together combos might not always be the easiest to achieve when you are rushing for work early in the morning, so in order to keep it focused and organized, we’ve broken down the most important items you need this fall!

Here are our Fall Office Wardrobe essentials getting inspired by NIC+ZOE!

These pieces will help you quickly create go-to-work outfits for fall by simplifying your fall office wardrobe. Most of the items can be paired together and can be dressed up or down, depending on the nature of your office space. Mine is rather casual, but Carolina has to wear smart-casual outfits, so these are the 7 pieces we decided on to best represent us both!

Comfort X Style – Suede Moto Jacket

As I grew older and matured my style and shopping habits, I learned that there is one thing I should always take into consideration when dressing up: Comfort. I no longer buy pants too tight that I cannot seat comfortably in or shoes a size smaller just because they didn’t have my actual number (I’ve done it more times than I like to admit).  I also brought this concept of feeling comfortable to other aspects of my style. I don’t feel like I need killer heels to feel chic and empowered as I did in my early 20’s, I’m perfectly happy and confident with my sneakers and slouchy pants combo! Finally, I found the perfect trick to win the duel Comfort x Style is to add a statement item to the battle, in this case the Suede Moto Jacket.

This jacket was such a great investment as it instantly elevates any look,  I have no doubts I’ll be living on it this season!  I can see so many cute fall outfits already : casual with sneakers, cozy with boots and a blanket scarf and of course with killer heels for a night out!! Here is how I wore my Suede Moto Jacket for a Sunday afternoon stroll with Liza that ended up in drinks at the sunset. 🙂

Get The Look – French Girl Style

As Fall is slowly pulling us in with pumpkin flavored lattes, new collections everywhere in stores, and Fashion Weeks in full bloom, we instantly get into the mood to hunt down amazing street style looks to apply for the upcoming season.

I have always loved the effortless chic French girl style around Fashion Week. With inspiration from Clemence Poesy, Isabel Marant, Jeanne Damas or the ultimate Emmanuelle Alt, this season I think I am very much into applying some French “bonheur” to my outfits too!

After a little bit of research, I’ve shortlisted some of the best pieces to create the prefect Fall French girl outfits – yes, even if you’re not living there! 🙂

8 Tips to Steal the French Girl Style

  1. Be friends with all hats
  2. Kill those black thighs or skinny jeans
  3. Pastel, buttoned-up or silky feminine dresses are your first choice
  4. Go for simple hairstyles even on fancy occasions
  5. Stock up on boyfriend blazers
  6. Flats and brogues are your go-to yet statement shoes
  7. Never leave the house without big black classic sunglasses
  8. Last but not least, always look innocent, but not quite… 🙂

Fall Capsule Wardrobe

Following the success of our Spring Capsule , we decided to use the same model for the upcoming season. Planning ahead the items that are a good investment and creating a list of go to pieces sure helps us focus on exactly what to buy and what to wear. After some research on favourite brands, fashion blogs and our own inspirations for the season, we came up with a list of 9 items for our Fall Capsule Wardrobe.

We plan to start wearing it now and all the way through winter (until the temperature allows us). Since Vancouver is famous for not having a severe weather in the winter, these would fit perfectly into our planned outfits. Mix them together or combine with a few other items you already own and you’ll have a  world of possibilities to get a practical and stylish outfit


  1. Turtleneck – Fall is all about layering and a light turtleneck can be your best ally, go for a striped version for a bit more fun.
  2. Wool Hat – It’s finally hat season again! I cannot come up with any reason why you shouldn’t be wearing it all the time!
  3. Slouchy Pants – Chic and comfortable – We’ll be living in these pants this fall, pairing with loafers for the office or sneakers for the weekend.
  4. Suede Dress – we’ve been loving suede for a while as seen here, but the chiller temperatures suits even better this thicker type of fabric! How awesome is this straight line dress? I really want to try it layered with a turtleneck! )
  5. Choker Necklace – while we don’t have to wrap ourselves in heavy scarfs just yet, let’s take advantage of this necklace trend! A choker will bring a light touch of edginess to any look.
  6. Floral Blouse – Although summer is gone bohemian is still hot for fall! Go with floral, darker prints and embroidery.
  7. Pleated skirt -An incredibly stylish way to dress feminine and classic, the midi length is perfect as we transition from a season to the other.
  8. Loafers – This  shoe trend is stronger than ever and these pointed-toe beauties are a must-have. So versatile, they can be paired with any of the pieces from our capsule!
  9. Camel Coat – A classic wardrobe staple, a  fitted wool coat will come handy on those crispy fall days. I think that camel suits this season’s palette o well that I couldn’t choose any other colour.
