When it comes to dressing for the office in the winter, it can be a challenge. You don’t want to step outside and freeze, and yet, you also don’t want to show up to the office wearing thousands of layers.
Today we’re going to share with you some of our favorite office-ready outfits that you can rock with confidence this winter. You ready?
1) Try a leather midi skirt
A leather skirt? To the office?
We know what you’re thinking, but trust us, when paired with a classic blouse, a leather midi skirt can the perfect touch of edge to an otherwise standard outfit.
Plus hey, leather is way too uncomfortable to wear in the summer, so take advantage now while you still can.
2) Ribbed turtlenecks work perfectly with trousers and skirts
While we love a good blouse, if you’re looking for a new wardrobe staple that’s perfectly winter appropriate, you’re going to love adding some ribbed turtlenecks into your wardrobe.
We suggest going for a form-fitted ribbed knit, so you can easily tuck the piece into your skirt or pants for a polished and professional look.
3) Now is the time to embrace statement blazers
While a blazer is a staple all season long, we love trying out statement blazers in the winter months.
Not only can you get away with thicker materials, you can also go for those oversized fits and not feel like you’re dressed too heavily for the warmer months.
In particular, if you want to try out a current trend, go for a blazer that has some ‘80 flair to it, or opt for a heritage style done in plaid to keep with the winter theme.
4) What about an oversized knit cardigan?
We get it, sometimes you’re heading to the office, and all you want to do is sit at home in your coziest pajamas. And while you certainly aren’t going to want to show up to the office in your pjs, you can try out the next best option.
A cozy knit cardigan can be paired with some pleated black trousers for a classic style, or even some faux leather leggings if you work in a more relaxed environment. Either way, this is going to become your go-to staple for winter officewear.
5) Another option? Try a slouchy crewneck sweater + a midi skirt
While a slouchy crewneck sweater might not sound very office appropriate, if you dress it up with a fancy skirt, heels, and lipstick, you can easily get away with your favorite crewneck sweater. Just be sure to keep the rest of your outfit a little more polished.
No doubt about it: Temperatures might be dropping, but that doesn’t mean your sense of style has to. Try out some of these office outfits from above, and you’ll have your most trendy winter yet. Guaranteed.
