A week’s worth of perfectly styled winter work outfits can feel hard to imagine on a Monday. As temperatures drop, you may find yourself losing the motivation to get dressed. We get it: we experience this every winter, too. The cold weather can often feel like a challenge to our style standards, but luckily, this season’s slew of playful sweaters, refined knit dresses, and leather boots are proving to be the antidote.
Maybe you’re contemplating a return to the office in the new year, or you’ve already been going in a few days a week. However you work, wherever you work, there’s reason to update your previous rotation of sweatsuits and break out more polished combinations that make you feel energized in all the right ways. Of course, it would be a crime to abandon the sense of comfort we’ve cultivated while being productive from the couch, so we’ve gathered 20 ensembles that are guaranteed to keep you cozy and chic at the same time.
Ahead, we’re offering the perfect answers for what to wear with your satin slacks to make for a look that’s preppy and functional; suggesting creative ways to bring your silk slip out of the bedroom (yes, it’s doable, even for an important meeting); and curating a short list of basics that will help you achieve these polished silhouettes. Braving the cold in style has never been easier, so scroll on for the trusty ideas we swear by during these few frigid months.
