Thus far, New York Fashion Week has been full of really elegant fashion-forward styles. But we can’t help but notice a recurring trend among many of the fashion icons attending the various events: businesswear is in.

Though the term typically calls to mind stiff pantsuits and pencil skirts, the streetwear and high-fashion styles that we’ve seen throughout the past week are not strictly office attire. Rather, the looks take typical officewear as their inspiration, blending it with glamorous high-fashion styles for a chic take on business sharp.

Aside from the glamorous tweed sets displayed at the Sept. 6 Coco Chanel retro diner party—which constituted your more typical business-chic wear—our favorite business-inspired outfit has to be Lucy Hale’s evening wear look from the minimalist brand Rokh.

The actress shared a handful of photos featuring the deconstructed wool coat outfit to her Instagram on Sept. 7, as she posed on the streets of New York. The set included a thin-strapped gray bralette top and a matching high-waisted, belted wool skirt with black button detailing. Hale paired the chic business-inspired set with a dainty black handbag and a sleek gold watch. She sported a slicked-back hairstyle and a red lip for the occasion.

Hale’s look had a minimalist touch to it, characteristic of typical businesswear and recent business-inspired styles. She took the glamorous look out on the town, proving that office-inspired garb is certainly high-fashion, and a trend to keep your eye on.
