Wardrobe basics like dressed-up tees, cable knit sweaters and slim-fit jeans are go-to items for fall that are as equally chic as they are casual. This Colorblock Top in Fuschia Stripe that we spotted over at jcrew.com is perfect for layering no matter if it’s a work or weekend look.
For the office, try it on with a button-down blouse in a shade similar to one of the colored stripes (like pink or black), a camel-colored pencil skirt and loafer-inspired heels. It’s stylish and professional. For the weekend, pair the top with a fitted blazer in a bolder hue like mustard yellow or Kelly green, dark denim skinny jeans and nude shoe booties. You’ll looked pull-together, but not over-done.
