Winter Layering: Dress smart for office

January 20, 2011

Everyone complains that layering during winter can be tough. And when you’re headed to work, layering is all the more tricky. Layer too casually, and you can look sloppy. Layer too formally, and your colleagues may think you’re snooty. And you don’t want to look bulky or resemble a fashion victim.

Speaking Chic has put together some key looks for office. So bundle up just right for work, and let your clothes speak for themselves.

Look 1: Sophisticated

Rock the next big meeting or sales pitch with an uber-sophisticated approach to winter dressing. The key is to opt for neutral outerwear with minimal, yet eye-catching detailing. The faux fur on the belted camel coat and the metallic buttons of the knit cardigan will add a dash of refinement to your office look.

Winter layering office: coat, cardigan, gloves, shirt

Shopping Guide:

Camel coat from French Connection

Deconstructed knits cardigan from French Connection

Studded gloves from S.Oliver

White shirt from S. Oliver

    Hey! Nice article – I enjoyed reading it.

    Just a suggestion/request: could you do a similar layering option for those who have to wear Kurta – Churdiars to work? Some offices are slightly tradional & western wear is a little out of place there. I personally find it easy to layer western wear but have a tough time layering Indian outfits..

      @Tanveer– Thanks for the feedback. 🙂 Layering with Indian wear… good idea, will see what I can do!
