The winter breeze is not like the summer breeze, it’s harsh, cold and dry. And in the name of fashion, we are left with the inevitable choice between fashion and functionality. Luckily enough for us, the gap between the two has been bridged quite efficiently. Be it turtle necks or trench coats, winter fashion has given us so much to be thankful for. Hence, we have compiled a list of some staple pieces that will help you create a work wardrobe that is just as trendy as its practical.
Plaid is literally a fashion symbolisation for the fall season. Whether it’s a blazer or a pair of pants, plaid is always the safest option. You can always change up the colours of the plaid to make it look trendier. Moreover, they are also the most versatile print and has swiftly become sort of a classic.
CRISP SOLID BLAZERS:
Now that the blazer is not just a formal wear option, you can play around with the silhouettes and utilise it even outside of your work. Owning a couple of solid blazers in the generic autumn colours will help you achieve a statement style.
Turtlenecks are a great way to make your effortless outfit look more put together. In case you are not a big fan of turtle necks, you can get basic sweaters or pullovers. Getting solids is the obvious choice when you are trying to build a whole new wardrobe, however, you can buy prints too. Prints like argyle, paisley, stripes, floral for the season, work throughout the year and will give your outfit an edge.
Skirts are always better when shorter. There is a reason why hobble skirts or any skirt before the 60's is not making a come-back. Shop any silhouette or pattern as you like, just try to stick the length in between the knees and mid-calf for a more fashionable look.
Right on trend, you can play around with your choice of trousers. From cigarette pants to palazzos, the market is flooded with so many different varieties and lucky for us, they are all trending simultaneously. Stick to the colours that you absolutely love for this one, as you will probably have to wear trousers almost every day. Let them be a part of your basics.
