Winter Workwear & Work Outfits to Boss in 21/22

With the start of a new season, it’s time to get a little inspired with some ideas for winter workwear. Trust us, we know it can be a minefield when shopping for winter work outfits when the cooler weather hits.

Our top tips? Choose classic pieces like tailoring and luxe knitwear and select items that can be easily mixed and matched. This means you can wear each piece time and time again throughout the season, while still mixing up your looks.

So, for winter 21/22, we’re all about pairing timeless pieces with a few bold pops of colour and print. Keep reading for five winter office outfits that will have your confidence skyrocketing at your next meeting.

A leopard print midi dress is the perfect winter work dress

Choose colours or prints to make outfits pop

Who said work dresses have to be dull? Not us! Mix up your winter work outfits and stay away from plain black by adding some personality to your office wear with vibrant colours and prints. Choose both of these with this stunning leopard midi dress with on-trend exaggerated puff sleeves.

Give your dress a winter feel by adding a pair of sleek black ankle boots and finish the look with a structured work bag for professional chic.

Other work dress looks for winter might include a classic shirt dress or even a mini (if you’re feeling daring!), styled with tights and boots. Just remember, this season it’s all about being bold with your prints and injecting some colour into your outfits.

Patterned trousers give your smart work trousers a whole new look

Smarten up with tailored trousers

Another key piece for a winter work wardrobe is a great pair of smart trousers. But there’s no need to keep things too simple here. You can have fun with your smart style and still keep it professional by choosing a chic patterned pair of trousers for the perfect smart, yet statement look.

Or choose a new shape and opt for flares or bootleg trousers to mix up your silhouette for the new season. If skinny is your go-to trouser look, change it up with a pair of on-trend stirrup leggings to add a touch of high-fashion detail to your outfit.

Pair your statement trousers with a sleek polo neck and oversized gold hoop earrings and add your classic blazer for a completely modern winter look. Don’t forget a pair of sunnies for an all-star entrance to the office!

Dress up a comfortable sweater dress for warmth and style this winter

Layer a comfortable sweater dress

Comfort meets style with the perfect sweater dress. A great idea for winter office wear, a sweater dress that might seem casual at first can be layered into a chic work look with just a couple of added details. Try this stunning statement leopard sweater dress from our latest collection or opt for simple black if you prefer a more neutral look.

Layer your sweater dress with a shirt and pop the collar over the neckline to create a more office-friendly take, ideal for work. Try this ribbed shirt from the collection and choose white for a contrast or black to keep things minimal.

Simply add a tonal waist belt for more shape and why not finish with this season’s must-have footwear, a pair of fabulous western boots? For another sweater dress look, try a button-up cardigan dress with extra-long boots.

Choose elevated knitwear and mix textures for a chic winter office outfit

Choose statement knitwear with mixed textures

When it comes to winter workwear, being warm and cosy is just as important as being smart. You can’t be productive if you’re at your desk with a chill! So, it’s a good idea to add a couple of key knitwear pieces to your collection of winter work clothes.

The trick? Choosing luxe knitwear that feels expensive – even if it’s super affordable. An oversized fit in a luxurious neutral colour palette is a great basic that you’ll wear time and time again with a mixture of looks. This slouchy crew neck jumper is perfect.

You can also create this look by choosing bold statement pieces, like this stunning zebra jumper or even some sparkle with sequins – sure to turn heads in the office!

Pair your luxe knitwear with different textures to create a chic, modern look. Try a pair of on-trend leather-look leggings or trousers, or mix it up with a silky, flowing midi skirt and long boots.

A must-have blazer

Number one on our winter workwear list has to be the perfect must-have blazer. A classic tailored blazer will go with pretty much everything in your wardrobe. Whether you’re wearing smart trousers, a flowing maxi dress or anything in-between, this jacket adds a smart, sophisticated and on-trend edge to any winter work outfit.

Create a sleeker and more modern look with your blazer by ditching a traditional shirt and styling it with a simple t-shirt. For more fun, try a statement slogan t-shirt for a discreet splash of colour.

When it comes to styling yourself through the colder months, the key is to try and choose pieces you can mix and match together to create lots of winter workwear options. Layering is a chic way to ensure you’re always warm enough and key pieces like a statement blazer or the perfect knitwear are a great way to achieve work-friendly layering.
