News & Opinion
Dressing professionally for the office during frigid winter months presents some unique challenges.
While the impulse may be to bundle up in oversized jumpers and parkas, maintaining a polished, put-together look is still important in the workplace. Finding attire that keeps you warm and defended against the elements while also appearing smart and presentable can seem difficult. However, with some strategic layering techniques and key investments in quality cold-weather essentials, assembling chic work-appropriate outfits for winter is very achievable.
The key is opting for pieces in refined fabrics like merino wool and cashmere that provide insulation without bulky embellishments. Tailored wool coats, sleek knit layers, opaque tights and polished leather shoes can all help you effortlessly achieve a warm and stylish look at the office as temperatures drop. With a little preparation and the right winter workwear staples, you can maintain your professional style with cozy flair.
Invest in Quality Coats
A warm, weatherproof overcoat is a winter necessity. Look for wool blends or down materials with a tailored, professional silhouette. Aim for neutral colours like black, grey or navy for versatility.
Try Merino Wool Jumpers
Merino wool jumpers are perfect under blazers or on their own. The soft, breathable fabric keeps you warm without bulk. Look for fine merino knits in crew, v-neck or cardigan styles.
Wear Dress Trousers
Swap summer-weight trousers for ones made of warmer blended fabrics like wool and polyester. Go for suits pants or smart trousers in darker shades that pair well with jumpers and button-ups.
Don Opaque Tights
Dresses and skirts can still work for winter with thick opaque tights and leggings underneath. Opt for black or neutral tights that blend seamlessly under your hemlines.
Keep Leather Shoes
Your favourite oxfords and loafers are great in cold weather too. Consider waterproofing sprays to prevent salt stains and water marks.
The key to stylish warmth is layering thinner pieces rather than bulky ones. Try base layers under shirts, cardigans over blouses and slim scarves under coats.
With some cold weather-conscious additions to your office wardrobe, you can look pulled together while staying comfortable when temps drop. Focus on quality fabrics, versatile essentials and subtle layering techniques.
