WINTER LAYERING 101- OFFICE EDITION

What seems to be a long winter has actually been the longest and coldest winter in my thirteen years of living in the States. We've had days of constant rain, icy and snowy conditions with strong wind gusts and even no sun for weeks. As depressing as it might get, it is even more debilitating sartorially. Who likes to wear the same jeans, sweater, coat, scarf and boots uniform day in day out. Well, I don't and specially when wearing jeans to work is not an option. Hence I have found my own hacks for wearing the same number of layers but in a more eye-appealing, office-appropriate way.

THE INNER MOST LAYER- there are multiple options for the base layer. A knit camisole or bodysuit would be a good bet. I am wearing my classic slim-fit white button-front shirt under that blazer and it definitely makes for a good foundation for any office outfit, be it winter or summer.

SWEATER - look for a thinner and finer knit if you wish to wear them as is or layer underneath a dress. For instance a cashmere sweater makes for a good layering piece and is an investment too.

TURTLENECK- a turtleneck in an array of colors is a must-have in every closet. Wear it under a blouse, a dress or even under a blazer, it looks great with just about anything.

CARDIGANS- a cardigan is just as chic and feminine as it is functional and handy. Wear it over a dress or your favorite blouse, and remove it when it feels too warm indoors: easy-peasy !

BLAZER - a roomy blazer is just what I prefer for layering over sweaters. It looks chic, polished and pulls together any look. Think outside the box and go for a punch with bright blazers. I am always down for a yellow or even a red blazer for office any day. 

TIGHTS - tights are my favorite layering essential. Stock up in neutral colors like black, brown, grey and in fun patterns like chevron, stripes, dots and mesh, and if you are feeling extra adventurous then go for bright colors. Sweater tights can be worn independently and the sheer thin ones can be layered under a pair trousers or even skirts. 

PRINTED PANTS - office trousers have come a long way from being just limited to wide-leg straight trousers. They are more modern and available in trendy silhouettes and prints. I can totally see myself wearing these cropped bootleg pants as I am wearing today with plaid kitten heels or a pair of boots on a more cooler day. 

OVERCOAT- talk to me about overcoats. I am a coat-a-holic and have curated quite a collection over these years. I love the classic wool ones and have it in a few different colors. When in the market for an overcoat, look for one that has some room to accommodate all those layers.
