Winter wardrobes can be tricky. You want to look stylish, but also want to stay warm. With winter trends, you can do both. Below are five ideas for professional winter work outfits that will keep you warm and also make you stand out as an office trendsetter.
Winter brings jackets and parkas, but if you find a stylish alternative, you will be an office trendsetter. Fitted pea coats or wool jackets are a great way to look classy while keeping you warm. Another way to stand out is a fashionable cape.
Boots are the perfect winter alternative to the summer sandal. Purchase a pair of classic neutral colored boots that you can wear every day. Higher boots will keep you warmer, but ankle boots are a stylish look that you can wear with multiple outfits. Keeping your feet warm in style is key to winter fashion. You can also continue wearing skirts and dresses, but stay warm with boots. Pair a mid length skirt with higher boots, or a dress with tights and boots or heels.
Adding winter weather alternatives to your typical office look is an easy way for your style to change seasons. This could be swapping your basic blazer for a warmer tweed. Another easy option is adding a chunky, long cardigan to a more fitted outfit underneath. Paired with skinny jeans, a tailored shirt and jeans, this look is sleek and stylish for more casual office environments.
Turtlenecks are a great, simple way to stay warm. Pair them with jeans and booties for a more relaxed office environment or wear one with a suit if you work somewhere that requires more professional attire. Layering is another great way to keep warm. Add a sweater over a button down, and create a classy and stylish look.
In addition to swapping out your summer clothes for your winter ones, it is the perfect time to bring out winter accessories. As an example, this could be scarves, gloves, beanies or earmuffs. Finally, check out some high tech winter accessories that are sure to keep you all bundled up.
