Lately, many you guys have been requesting more workwear outfits, so I wanted to round up a few options that are perfect for the winter time. Although I no longer work in an office setting, I remember how difficult it was to bundle up and still look chic for work during this time of the year. Most of the time, I would rely on really great basics and a tailored coat. The great thing about smart workwear staples is that you can always mix in trendier pieces for an outfit that feels stylish and professional when it’s chilly out. No matter what your office dress code is, here are the winter workwear outfits you can recreate this week.
Lovers + Friends Red Sweater (wearing an XXS) | Superdown Faux Leather Skirt (wearing an XXS) | Christian Louboutin So Kate Heels (better for budget here) | Gucci Velvet Marmont Bag (exact sold out, similar here) | Saint Laurent Sunglasses (better for budget here)
Cutout Sweater & Pencil Skirt
When I worked in corporate, I always stocked up on the basics – like pencil skirts, button-down tops, and trousers. These pieces are so easy to accessorize and you can always add in statement pieces like a bold cutout sweater.
Balmain Blazer (wearing an FR34, better for budget here) | Gucci Belt (wearing a size 70 – read my ‘Gucci Belt Sizing Guide’ HERE) | Black Sweater Dress (wearing a US 0) | Gucci Tights (wearing an S) | Givenchy Sunglasses | Chanel Bag | Similar Revolve Heels
Sweater Dress & Belted Blazer
One of my winter workwear must-haves is a sweater dress that goes from day to night. A sweater dress works for the office in the colder months because you can pair it with tights and booties or pumps. There are so many affordable styles from Asos, Nordstrom, and Revolve. I love throwing on a belted blazer to create a more put together look.
Express Chunky Sweater (sold out, similar here and here) | Express Faux Leather Leggings (wearing a 00P – size down, 50% off now!) | Revolve Booties (run TTS) | Bottega Veneta The Pouch (in Mist color) | Givenchy Sunglasses (better for budget here)
Sweater, Slim Pants, & Neutral Booties
Having a few pant options to wear in the winter are essential. I’ve always leaned towards a slimmer fit like leather leggings or ponte pants. You can balance out the tighter fit with a boxy sweater. Neutral sweaters are best because they always look expensive no matter the price point.
Wrap Coat, Tunic Sweater, & Knee High Boots
To maintain a polished form, skip the thick, bulky outerwear, which can end up looking frumpy. Instead, opt for light, tailored pieces that you can layer on and cinch at the waist. Look to trendier pieces, like knee-high boots, to tie the outfit together.
Chunky Sweater & Pencil Skirt
The pencil skirt can quickly be reinvented with a chunky sweater on top. It tones down the slimmer fit of a pencil skirt and looks amazing with a pair of sleek pumps. You can always add tights for extra warmth and coverage.
Louis Vuitton Multi Pochette | Louis Vuitton Bandouliere | Revolve Top (wearing an XXS) | Revolve White Pants (sold out, similar here) | Tom Ford Sunglasses (better for budget here) | Christian Louboutin White Heels (better for budget here)
Sequin Blouse & Flared Trousers
I’m loving the sequin trend right now, but if you’re not sure how to incorporate it into an office setting, keep in mind that it’s all about the silhouette. Long statement sleeves or a wrap silhouette feels conservative enough for work. Pair this top with neutral-colored trousers and you’ll have a super luxe workwear outfit.
Topshop Olive Boucle Coat (wearing an XS) | Frame Brown Coated Denim (wearing a 23) | Revolve Green Turtleneck Sweater (wearing an XS) | Christian Louboutin Heels (better for budget here) | Louis Vuitton Toiletry Pouch 26 | Louis Vuitton Shawl (preowned here and here) |Tom Ford Sunglasses (better for budget here)
Tailored Coat, Clean Denim, & Pumps
I always loved dressing down on Casual Fridays. One of my tricks to looking polished in jeans is wearing a tailored coat. As much as I love distressed jeans, a cleaner and fitted style works better for an office-ready look.
