9 to 5 Style: 12 Easy Winter Outfits for Work

Hello winter! It’s here on the calendar, mildly present in temperatures for us. It’s also the day that I share 9 to 5 style. This month’s theme is winter. You still want to look polished during the winter for work, not puffed like the Michelin man. Here are 12 easy winter outfits for work that include some key pieces for surviving winter at work.

12 easy winter outfits for work

The best way to approach winter work wear is to layer. Layers are easy to remove when you have to adjust from the temps outside to the heat inside. Think sweaters, scarves and warm blazers. If your climate is super cold, invest in a thermal under shirt to wear under your blouses and sweaters.

1 Button up shirt+ sweater +blazer+pants

Our winters are fairly mild, so I can get away with baring my ankles.

Opt for a wool orbright outfit for work

3 Button up shirt+ Blazer + plaid pants

A wool blend blazer is also a great winter essential.

4 Blazer + sweater + trousers

I have lots of lightweight sweaters that layer well under blazers. Smooth knit, lighter sweaters are more polished and office appropriated than oversized, chunky sweaters.

The top half of this outfit is pretty neutral and can be paired with any color pants- burgundy, red, or teal work really well. And you can most certainly wear your ankle boots to the office. Ankle boots work well with trouser leg pants.

Just a note- this is the last 9 to 5 style for the year and I’m ending the series here.

Jenny has not participated in several months, and while I will certainly still be sharing 9 to 5 work style, I think it’s time to work on a new format and have some flexibility for other ideas and series. I hope you have enjoyed this series through the years. If any of my other blogger friends want to collaborate on a new series or post, feel free to reach out.

Yes, this post is also a day late. Tis the season. It was a super busy weekend and an exhausting Monday so the post just didn’t make it out yesterday. I’m likely to be late for Christmas this week, lol.
