With our summer vacays now behind us, you might find yourself in need of some new office-appropriate outfits. Whether you’ve just started a new job or just want a few new pieces to add to your capsule wardrobe, TikTok is a treasure trove of inspo. From comfortable trousers to chic vests, here are some of the best TikTok workwear outfits for fall…
When it comes to a day in the office, there are a few things we need to consider. The first is, of course, the weather—will you need to layer your top with a shirt or need to dig out your fall coats? The second is comfort—will you be sitting at your laptop for most of the day? And the third is what’s deemed appropriate for your work setting.
Thankfully most workplaces don’t have any kind of dress code—and we’re no longer in an era of shoulder-padded pantsuits and long pencil skirts. But still, many of us probably still like to create a divide between our off-the-clock fits and our work attire—though that doesn’t mean your outfits need to be dull!

Wardrobe staples for TikTok-approved fall office outfits
TikTok really has become our go-to for all things fashion trends—whether it’s debuting the latest must-have clothing item (like the Birkenstock Bostons) or showing us how to get the ‘Clean girl aesthetic’.
And now the app never fails us is coming to our style rescue once again with these office fits that work all year round.

The general consensus in the world of TikTok is that loose, suit-style pants are the ultimate office IT-girl piece—they go with everything, from shirts to bodysuits, and are effortlessly chic.
They can be paired with a matching blazer, a cute knit and even a baggy shirt—for those scandi, Djerf Avenue vibes. And will always make you look like you’ve got your life together (even if you don’t).

We recommend investing in a few pairs in black, grey and cream—so you can mix and match with all your fave tops and blouses.
To make your trouser shop even easier, right now these pleated trousers from Uniqlo are going viral on the app and will pair perfectly with the Uniqlo shoulder bag, which is also a great work staple!
A blouse is also a must for a cute office fit.
If you're wearing a plain pair of trousers, you can go wild with your top. Whether that means ruffled sleeves or satin—the options are pretty much limitless!

ASOS DESIGN sleeveless blouse with high neck & tie back in white
This cute number features a high neck and tie detail at the back and can be layered under a knit cardigan or blazer for a smart-casual look.
It's also got short sleeves which also makes it perfect for Spring/Summer.
H&M Broderie anglaise frill-trimmed blouse
This blouse features a broderie design and frilly sleeves (similar to one of user @autumn_gruber's outfits in the above TikTok video) and is so cute for a more dressy day in the office.
Pair with your pleated trousers and some loafers and you've got an easy, smart look with no fuss!
A white T-shirt
Next up is the essential white-t. It’s basic but sometimes basics are the best.
A nice white T can be paired with your smart trousers, worn alone with some gold jewelry, or worn under a sweater vest or chunky knit as we transition into the colder months.

Shirts are also a recurring fave, for fall we recommend a white, blue, or black shirt over a white t-shirt or vest.
ZARA Oxford Shirt
We can't get enough of oxford shirts—especially when they're blue and white pinstripe.
This one is giving office meets coastal grandmother (opens in new tab) vibes and we're here for it!
Weekday Perfect oversized poplin shirt in white
You can never go wrong with a white shirt.
When paired with smart trousers and a white tee or worn under a sweater, you'll instantly have a smart 'clean-girl (opens in new tab)' look.
If you want to add a pop of color to your outfit, a bright shirt is definitely the way to go. If you’re feeling brave, try one in hot pink—which is super trendy right now!
New Look Deep Pink Long Puff Sleeve Shirt
RRP: £22.99 (UK only)
This pink shirt will no doubt bring the drama and put you in a good mood for work!
It will add a pop of color to your look and shows you're in the know when it comes to high fashion—as it's Valentino's go-to color this season!

When the days get cooler and it starts getting dark at 4 pm *cry* a nice chunky knit jumper or cardigan is definitely a must.
Opt for neutral shades to match all your other pieces—roll necks are also very sophisticated.
And nothing really says fall like a v-neck sweater vest!
If you really want to look like you mean business, a blazer is always a win. They're having a real moment right now and for good reason.
They can work with a pair of matching pants for an elevated suit look, to dress up a pair of jeans—or even as a light jacket for those mild autumn days!
We recommend picking one up in either black, or a color matching your trousers—so you can pull out a matching set moment.
