No one wants to freeze to death at work, and having the chills can seriously affect your productivity! So aside from functional and dress code-friendly winter work looks, you also need pieces to help you stay warm and toasty. Seems like a lot of think about? I’ve got your back. Read on for 7 winter work looks you don’t have to stress over!
No-Fuss Winter Work Looks For The Whole Week
While work dress codes may not change with the seasons, your outfit needs sure do! When looking for winter work looks, keep comfort and practicality at the top of your list. You’re a working girl, so you need your outfits to work just as hard as you do! I’ll be sharing with you some of my own go-to winter work looks—they’re so easy to put together, and they’re even easier to mix and match! With a bit of creativity and a touch of your personal style, these 7 outfits can spawn a whole season’s worth of new winter work looks. So read up and get ready to shop for all the pieces you need!
1. Tweed Dresses
One of my favorite things about winter work looks is how I can wear so many different fabrics! Go for thicker materials like tweed: it’s a closet staple for working girls, whether or not you’re in the corporate world!
2. Turtleneck Dresses
Another staple dress for winter work looks: the turtleneck. It serves its function to keep you warm, but it’s also basic enough to mix and match with other pieces! Layer it under a vest or crop blazer for a polished look.
3. Winter Whites
White pieces make for really crisp winter work looks. A white sheath dress (in a thicker fabric, of course!) under a cozy white or nude coat is a combo even the laziest or busiest girls can get behind. Accessorize with a classic handbag and your favorite pearl earrings for extra style.
4. Camel Coats
Camel coats are my favorite transitional pieces. Wear them in the fall, then throw them over your winter work looks and you’ll be out the door and off to work in no time! They pair perfectly with black, white, and every color in between. I love wearing my camel coats with navy blue power suits!
5. Double-Breasted Coats
If you need to dress up this season but also need to battle the cold weather, a double-breasted coat will do everything for you, and more. It’s ultra chic, timeless, and so functional. I love the double-breasted coats with faux fur lining around the neck—so warm and comfy!
6. Turtleneck Sweaters
For winter work outfits, you can never have enough turtleneck tops. They’re like the silk blouses of warmer months. Tuck a turtleneck into a longer pencil skirt, wear it with culottes or classic cigarette pants, then just pair with your best winter coat!
7. Sweater Vests
Sweater vests are also transitional pieces you can wear with winter work looks. Layer them over your basic button-downs, turtlenecks, or even your dresses if you’re feeling girly!
