The menswear look is trending huge for fall, and there's no more classic way to rock it in the workplace than with a rich tweed suit. There's no need to worry you'll look boyish in this nubby fabric - it's been a women's wardrobe staple for centuries.

Found more frequently as a suit pattern than an actual weave, herringbone puts the "power" in "power suit." Soften up the serious silhouette with silky print blouses, or modernize it with glossy patent handbags or chunky-heeled pumps.
Business Suits: Navy Skirt Suits

Cool charcoal re-emerges as a leading tint trend, and there's something about this understated neutral that's awesome for the office. Layer a jewel-toned (emerald, sapphire, ruby) blouse underneath to keep your look sophisticated, not sallow.

Fit-and-flare shapes bring a little Mad Men to your day, look great on every body, and are the most office-appropriate way to incorporate an uber-trendy look - this dress style is just made for mid-heel pumps and top-handle handbags.
Blouses, Shirts and Sweaters: Bow Blouses

This generation's version of the silky bow blouse is far from the oversized, poufy and starched wonder of the Working Girl '80s. Easy draping and longer ties that can be worn loosely gathered or undone help these career staples redefine soft sophistication.
Blouses, Shirts and Sweaters: Animal Print Blouses

If you sometimes feel it's a jungle out there, you're not wrong. Cheetah, leopard, zebra and reptile prints are everywhere this season, so throw one on under an otherwise sober business suit and get set to growl.
