Guide to Easy Winter Dressing for the Workplace

Getting out of your bed during chilly mornings is hard enough, and then comes the added responsibility of dressing appropriately for a long day at work. You’re constantly perplexed by the dilemma of whether it’s appropriate to wear fur-lined boots to work, or a chunky knit co-ord, or a puffer jacket as fluffy as your weighted blanket. After a whirlwind of this, that, what ifs and I wish, you sadly settle on a toned-down, muted outfit that is perfectly in tune with the gloom in the air, only hoping that your clothes would’ve been warmer and a whole lot cuter (and maybe even a tad bit brighter).

While routine is great, some patterns are meant to be broken. Like this gruesome process of winter dressing for work. Stay with us to find five winter tops for women that make dressing for the chills an absolute breeze and a lot more fun.
