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!

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).
