Summer is winding down, and whether you’re preparing for your last big vacation before the fall or starting a brand new job after your summer internship, you’re probably thinking about adding a few new pieces to your workwear wardrobe for next season. Luckily, the brains at Pinterest analyzed the business attire trends that are piquing the interest of pinners everywhere, and pulled together this list that might help you make some shopping decisions.
Whether it’s a new sweater to keep on your chair at work (why are office buildings always so GD cold?!) or the perfect pair of comfy-chic slacks to wear all season long, the trends below are flexible enough to be adapted for any work environment — and to suit your personal style.
