Finding dressy, work-appropriate clothes for winter is often a challenge. You want to look great while staying warm and comfortable. Easier said than done. Most warm, comfortable clothing isn’t very dressy, work-appropriate clothes aren’t always very warm, and dressy clothing isn’t always work-appropriate. More generally, most winter work inspiration shots seem to be geared toward 40s/50s temperatures. In the midwest and many other parts of the country, winter weather tends to be much colder. While the winter business casual fashion inspiration I’m sharing may not cover you for -1o wind chills, it will cover you for freezing and slightly below freezing temperatures.
My one complaint about the favorite winter business casual fashion inspiration images I collected is that there isn’t enough color. Why are so many people afraid to wear color? I understand not being drawn toward neon yellow or magenta. But there’s nothing wrong with a pop of bright green or blue, especially on a dreary winter day. Adding a colorful pair of shoes or a bold accessory goes a long way. I’ve tried to include a mix of neutral and colorful items in my retail picks at the end of the post.
