Weekday Wear Linkup! Sleeveless Tanks And Colourful Pants: Business Casual Autumn Style

The best thing about autumn weather finally arriving in Brisbane is the ability to unpack some things from their storage boxes in the wardrobe! Jeans! Scarves! It's nice to have them out again after them being hidden away during the heatwaves.

Colourful pants add a bit of fun to a business casual outfit for the office. And even though one of these pairs is jeans rather than pants, they easily pass as pants in the office (and if they didn't would fit right in to everyone else in my office wearing blue jeans)!

What I wore:

ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats (also available in silver)
BagBalenciaga part time in black 2010 with SGH

Why I wore it:

Totally stealing my boss's style here! This kind of outfit; skinny jeans, a nice top and a blazer, is one she wears frequently in the office in cooler weather. I love pairing neutral pieces with these olive pants so black was an easy choice, and this brown printed tank is an easy neutral to wear. I did feel the outfit was a little flat though so I wanted to add a necklace - decided to step out of my comfort zone a little more and try green with green again. I thought the darker green in this necklace worked well with the olive jeans.

Yes, these are the same jeans I wore last week! I've been thrilled to get them out again with the cooler weather.

Why I wore it:

It's not the first time I've worn this tank with burgundy, I layered it up with a burgundy scarf for winter before. I really like the way to pastels in the print work with the burgundy pants. I decided to try something a little different and add this pretty pastel shimmer scarf on top too. it matches the pretty but impossible to see on photos peach pastel leaf print in the tank. I really liked the scarf and tank together. I don't usually wear so many pastels but I thought it really worked here.

I just picked a grey blazer to throw on and cover my shoulders in the office.

Got quite a few compliments on this outfit too. Mainly on the scarf, a pretty gift from my mum.

How You Can Wear It:

Colourful pants are a nice alternative to classic black for the office, particularly if your office is business casual where you have more options with what you wear. If your office is really casual, you could even pass off colourful jeans as pants by dressing them up with a blazer.

  1. I do agree, coloured pants are a fun twist on the classical look. I really like your office looks. Skinny jeans and a sleeveless tank is a great combo. I like both outfits. The necklace in the first one really caught my eye. It matches the green jeans nicely. When it comes to the second outfit, I love how the colours are soft and romantic. Great outfits, both of them.

  2. I agree that it's so nice to be able to wear pants and jeans again, Mica!;) I love both of your outfits! Both pairs of pants are lovely colours and look great how you've styled them. That bag is such a classic too and looks great with everything! Hope you've had a lovely long weekend, Mica! ;) XXX

  4. I like pretty tanks and they are both beautiful but I am drawn to the colors on the second outfit! That's awesome that's it's Autumn there in Brisbane. It's feeling like Summer in my neck of the woods and I just want to hibernate! Yeah, no super thrilled it's been mid-80s around here already. I hope you had a good weekend and happy Monday!

  8. You almost make me wish for fall again and it is almost summer here! I do enjoy summer but it does get really hot and humid here in the South of the US... But I do try to enjoy each season while it is here!

  13. Love both of these! Colored pants (or jeans) area really a great way to avoid wearing regular jeans. I need to do that more often, haha. But I'm just so obsessed with regular jeans it's a hard habit to break.

  14. I've been gone from the blogosphere for a few weeks, so I'm seeing your cut for the first time and I absolutely love it on you! You look so sophisticated and polished in both these outfits. The skinny jeans are a great option for the office with either a nice top or blazer. Very chic. Thanks for sharing and I hope you have a great week ahead!

  15. Such nice looks, Mica. I'm appreciating seeing your green pants, as most of us have put ours away in the States. The chiffon scarf is so pretty and feminine <3!

  16. I'm loving the navy blazer and olive pants! I would totally wear a similar outfit to work. It's perfect!

  17. I feel the same way about colored pants. I even have my husband wear colored jeans to work now. I feel so much more dresser when I wear colored pants to work. I so need to wear my blazers more.

    I hope you had a great weekend. It rained all weeked here. So we worked on the house and ran a few errands.

    Have a great week.

  22. I love both outfits but I actually have a pair of moss green pants that look like the ones in the first picture. I'm getting used to the idea that olive is a great neutral and trying to be more bold about the combinations I wear. I added my latest post to the weekly linkup but screwed it up somehow so the picture area is totally blank :/

    I hope you have an awesome week!

  24. I love these outfits. I work in a University bookstore, so I can dress up or down, but I always try to look polished and professional even if I am wearing jeans. Wearing a blazer over a nice top or a tee with a scarf and jacket is a great way to take a jeans outfit up a notch. Love your style! - Amy

  26. My first thought when I saw that top picture was, "Mica looks like a boss!" Ha! It's a really good business casual outfit, and I think the necklace makes it.

    I struggle with some pastels like this scarf, as they disappear in photos, even though they look great in person. You are not alone!

    Have a great week, Mica!

  33. Unlike me, you do suit a pair of skinny trousers. Both tops are cute, but I especially love the first one, which has a bit of a retro vibe going on. xxx
