Go Bold with Prints
Prints are huge for winter this year and there’s no need to be afraid to experiment with them for your workwear wardrobe. If you’re opting for animal print, choose deep hues and opt for chic shirt dresses with a bit of length to make sure it’s still office-appropriate.
This Banana Republic dress is sophisticated and classic yet hits the season’s trends to perfection.
Possibly the dream boots? We’re obsessed with these slouchy black knee-highs which are a staple for the whole of fall and winter and so easy to style.
If the Aquazzura boots are a little out of your price range, these Chinese Laundry ones are very similar and a little easier on the wallet!
Mix Up Your Color Palette
It can be tempting to opt for black, brown and classic navy for work. While this is always chic, it doesn’t have to be your go-to. Color can be super fun for work and especially through winter, it can be a great way to spice up your look. We love this bright and bold suit paired with contrasting colors and adding a pop of green nails hits this season’s trends to perfection (plus – it’s going to be HUGE for spring so it’s a great look to get now and wear next year too!).
This single-breasted suit jacket from GRLFRND is EVERYTHING. And recreates the look perfectly.
Team it up with this bright statement green shirt for a fashion-forward contrast.
Add a coordinating green bag to pull the whole look together.
Double Up On Satin
Thought satin wasn’t for work? It can be! Double up with a shirt and a slinky satin pencil skirt for a chic look. If a head to toe monochromatic look feels too statement for the office, take two tones of the same color to break up the look but keep it cohesive. Styled with pointed pumps and a chic tote, simply layer with your seasonal tailored coat and you’re ready to keep making boss moves at work.
Boss lady Bethenny Frankel shows us exactly how to rock winter whites for work and we’re LOVING this look! Layer up thicker white dresses with some serious structure and pair it with tailored smart coats for a look that’s undeniably office-appropriate.
This Max Mara dress is chic and smart and perfect for this look.
Alternatively, try a sweater dress but keep it smart with a knee-length hemline and chunky fabric.
Style with a luxurious and super-smart tailored coat like this one from Veronica Beard.
Make Leather Work
Leather at the office can work. For most! You know your office dress code better than we do! The best ways to work it? Layer leather or coated trousers with a smart but effortlessly on-trend, utility-style shirt.
These chic leather pants from DKNY are perfect for work and don’t look too like black jeans, which some leather pants do! This gives them a more formal and dressy feel which works for the office better.

Brighten up the look with some winter white classic pointed pumps.
Keep it Leather
Another way to do leather pants for work is to pair it up with a simple crisp white shirt. Opt for tailored but looser fit pants and choose high waist styles to keep a structured shape to your look.
This cropped pair from Nanushka fit to perfection and offer a totally different look to the last pair we picked out.
Keep it simple with a classic white button-down or opt for something like this Jonathan Simkhai shirt with chic eyelet details.

Make Black Extra
If you’re going to opt for black this winter, why not make it extra? Instead of simple black classics, opt for bold silhouettes, interesting lines, and some seriously cool details.
This Alice + Olivia puff sleeve sweater embraces the puff shoulder trend and makes a black knit something a little more special.
Pair it up with some dramatic wide-leg pants that add some serious dimension to a chic winter work look.
Back to Print
Lastly, we’re heading back to prints because they’re so big when it comes to trends this season. Don’t feel like doing head to toe prints are going too bold? Do with your boots. Pair a slouchy knit dress with some seriously statement snakeskin boots for an on-trend yet meeting-appropriate look.
We love this belted knit maxi dress and with long sleeves and a modest neckline, it can be styled both office-ready and more casually.
Add some knee-high snake print boots with similar tones for a bold look that just works. Style these boots on the weekend with anything from black skinny jeans to your go-to little black dress.
Add a sharp tote bag to give the slouchy outfit some structure.
