So, when Target offered up the challenge of styling a few perfect looks for fall with their Merona Collection, I happily accepted. This is the first in a four-part weekly series, where we’ll talk basics to buy, mistakes to avoid, and rules to follow (or ignore) in building a well-balanced wardrobe.
Up first: Fall trends to wear to work this season. Here’s my top two picks:
- A stylish pencil skirt: This wardrobe staple is universally flattering with a cut that’s long-and-lean. Build your outfit around a bright or patterned skirt, layer on a blouse (tucked or untucked), jacket and jewelry. Create contrast with a wedged bootie or style it up with matching pumps.
- A tailored blazer: No news here — a fitted blazer is fall’s quintessential must-have. These pieces will take you from office sophisticate to city chic (and happy hour-ready) in a moment’s notice. Pair ‘em with ankle pants and nude pumps or color-block with a patterned blouse.
