Ah, fall—warm drinks cupped between cold hands, apple picking with the entire fam, changing leaves and the holidays to come. But there’s one element of this yearly transition that never gets quite enough attention, and that’s back to work. There’s something about the crispness of fall that makes us perk up and work a little harder in ways we might not do over the summer.
It’s got a little to do with the weather, and a lot to do with the clothes. Fresh fall styles and layers that are so different from summer’s simplicity. We instantly look a little more put together…ready to conquer the world. This fall, the ensembles we’re most excited about are business casual outfits, which get a huge boost from two categories of simply exceptional pieces: suits and jeans! From the sharp lines of the Agency to the bold checks of the Connery, this season’s suits are statement-making stunners you’ll want to wear every day. The good news? With a diverse new denim lineup in shades from light blue to must-have smolder, we’ve got just the jeans to pair back to your new suits for casual Friday looks that get the job done while still having fun. Check out the looks below, and get ready to fall for your new fall work wardrobe!
Checks are all the rage this quarter, which is why we’re signing off on the vintage navy plaid Connery for a head-to-toe look guaranteed to strike it big this fall. Balance your look with the striped and floral print of the Scroll Top for a feminine touch, then finish it off with a little pattern-clashing glen plaid bootie.
Featured Items: Connery Jacket, Connery Trouser, Scroll Top, Landmark Locket, Dandy Boot
Break up your plaids for a low-key look that goes from work to play in a snap! Start with the High Skinny, which adds length and shape to the cropped, borrowed-from-the-boys cut of the Connery Jacket. Keep the tones muted and reach for the Roll-Up Tee in dark charcoal, then lighten up with touch-of-gold accessories.

This fall, shatter those glass ceilings with an ensemble as elegant as it is daring: The Boss! Embrace the long lines of the Boss Jacket, which nips in at the waist and ends above the knee, perfect for drawing attention to the slim-fitting pencil silhouette of the Boss Skirt in matching currant. For a touch of girlish charm, add the Pinstripe Cami—floral, gauzy, and fabulous!

We love making casual Fridays an excuse for testing out new statement pieces. Before going head-to-toe with our head-turning Boss suit, pair just the jacket back to a High Straight in our to-die-for washed black colorway: smolder. Add the bright colors and bold patterns of the Good Luck Blouse for a playful take, then tie on a scarf and go!
Featured Items: Boss Jacket, Smolder High Straight, Good Luck Blouse, Leopard Scarf
Flex those creative muscles with a contemporary, chic suit that begs to be embellished. The asymmetrical, fold-over collar of the Agency Jacket finishes in a perfect peplum for a structured look with a lot of interest that simply bursts to life paired back to a floral blouse. Complete your look by balancing modern and classic with some vintage gold jewelry—love!

Turn casual Friday into casually chic with the sharp lines of the Agency Jacket! Go for a little color clash and pair this jet black jacket back to a classic blue jean. Reach for a bold pop of red in the Devoted Blouse—roll up the sleeves of your jacket and let the bell sleeves of this bohemian stunner pop out for added style points.

The ’50s are having a moment this fall, and we’re totally on board!

Double down on vintage style by reaching for details like lace overlay and velvet on everything from tops to accessories.
