D.C. blogger “E” may have grown up in the city but she still loves playing tourist around town. On her lifestyle blog, “District of Chic,” she shares her tailored-yet-trendy looks as well as her adventures to museums and new restaurants and step-by-step recipes.

An expert at mixing luxe with accessible pieces, September Guest Scouter “E” singles out her favorite of-the-moment looks for fall suitable for the work place. Think metallic loafers and just-below-the-knee skirts.

“E” says…D.C. can be tricky when it comes to defining what’s appropriate for work. Some offices specify skirt length, heel height, and even earring size, while others are much more relaxed. But that doesn’t mean you can’t have a little fun.

All Business

Lady-like heels and longer skirt lengths are on trend for fall, which is perfect for more conservative offices that discourage high heels and short skirts. An updated 50s-style ensemble like this one is both elegant and appropriate. Our picks:

  • sweater

    Milly sweater with attached collar

  • watch

    Kate Spade watch

  • studs

    Zoe & Morgan studs

  • notebook

    Smythson leather notebook

  • ring

    Banana Republic cocktail ring

  • bag

    Alexander Wang tri-fold shoulder bag

  • pumps

    ASOS pumps

  • skirt

    Halston Heritage skirt

Business Casual

If you work in a more casual environment, pick up a fun pair of loafers! There are tons to choose from this season and they’ll pair equally well with your more polished pants as they will with your weekend jeans. Play around with statement earrings, too for an added sparkle to any office outfit. Our picks:

  • Reiss button-down

  • Vita Fede bracelet

  • Baublebar earrings

  • Equipment sweater

  • Zara bag

  • J. Crew pants
