Winter Wardrobe Essentials

“The” Winter Coat – The first and most important priority is to invest in a good Winter coat. Additional Necessities : Gloves – black leather winter gloves with cashmere lining for extra warmth.  There are also some great microfiber options that look like leather, but are less expensive. Black Skinny Pants or even consider black skinny jeans (depending on the office dress code) – skinny pants hug your body and keep you warm.  You can also add tights or even long johns under them for an extra layer of warmth. Boots that can last the elements or swap out your winter boots for office heels when you get to your desk. Note – Invest in a couple pairs of sleek, not hefty, dress boots that can be worn out in the elements and at the office Even better: Buy a large workbag that you can put your heels in, then switch them out at the office. Cashmere Sweater – nothing can replace the warmth of a 100% cashmere sweater.  It’s worth the investment. Long Johns – In the coldest of winter days add a pair of tight (form fitting) long johns that you can wear under your skinny pants.  They will added a wonderful extra layer of warmth and no one will ever know you’re wearing them Cashmere Scarf – scarves keep your neck warm and they also add a little color to your otherwise toned down winter wardrobe.  Use the scarf for both warm and color. Wool Socks – buys a couple pairs of fun wool socks.  They’ll keep your toes warm and give you a smile at the end of the long day We’ll also show you some of our favorite coats – pea coats and synched waste coats that will make you look great on your way to the office in the fall and winter months.
