Everything You Need to Update Your Fall Work Wardrobe

Sometime between last week and today, fall began. Temperatures drastically dropped (thank goodness—that humidity was killing us), sweaters started popping up on civilians, and grand plans for pumpkin carving and apple picking began. Though we’re thrilled to greet autumn, it’s always a bit tricky to transition into the next season when it comes to office attire. The workplace naturally goes a bit lax during summer, but now it’s time to polish things up a bit—and we’re here to help.

Our collection at Target is chock-full of pieces like crewneck sweaters and tailored trousers that will make getting dressed in the morning much less stressful. What’s also less stressful? Spending less money. Thankfully all of our items are under $50, so you can still indulge with a pumpkin spice latte, should your heart desire it.

Scroll down to see our back-to-work shopping list, and be sure to check out all of our new arrivals for the season.
