Whether you like it or not we are very much heading into Autumn, we can no longer rely on sandals and a dress for work, as the days get shorter and the nights chiller. We need to begin planning for the season ahead.

Whenever we need practical solutions to our sartorial requirements, we head to Marks and Spencer who have bang on trend pieces at prices our bank accounts appreciate! Keep reading to find 3 Autumn easy work outfits at M&S.

The Suit

First up us probably the most predictable and universal for all work places. However, you should never underestimate the power of a truly great suit. Tailoring has proved popular season after season, so you will never look out of style.

If you want a dose of autumnal style then we suggest you pick a fabric that will speak of warmer tones, and cooler nights. We turn to Marks and Spencer who year after year, manage to produce some of the best fitting suits on the high street. We love this checked two piece that we know we love season after season!

If your office is more casual, then we suggest you pair your fave suit with some trainers. This casual end accessory will make your suit more everyday and keep you comfy. Have you got dinner plans later? Stow some heels in your tote and take your suite from day to night.

The Midi Dress

This 70s trend item of late summer has crossed the border and is now well and truly installed as an autumn winter trend. The midi dress is effortless, comfortable and instantly makes you look boardroom ready.

This dress is perfect now, and if we have a warmer period in late autumn, will be perfect then too. For winter; layer roll necks under, or chuck a thick knit over the top in complementary colours.

The perfect combo for the effortless work outfit is mid calf boots, worn with mid denier tights, you will be good to go all day. This is a very on trend look, and is probably not everybody’s taste, but for those who are tempted to try it, you will not be disappointed!

The Statement skirt

This trend has been around a couple of seasons, but really comes into its own this season. Bold florals rub shoulders with statement metallics. Skirts are super easy to wear, require very little effort when paired with tights, and make you feel incredibly put together for work.

This season the style is very much a midi length, can be paired either with the calf length boots from the midi dress look, or trainers from the suit for an easy day look for the office!

The perfect minimal accompaniment to these bold skirts, thin knitwear of course! Yes an easy layer of knit finished off these skirts, without being too fussy or over complicated. We love bold colours to pick out the pattern or clash with it all together in a bold animal print.
