~ 7 Tips for dressing up for work this Winter!!

I haven’t done a fashion post in a while!!! Sorry about that. Lifestyle, recipe and travels along with maternity related stuff has kept the blog busy, but for those readers who have been requesting more fashion related content, this post is for y’all!!

Dressing up for work in winter can be a challenge, it’s cold and gloomy and all we want to do is wear comfy pjs and sip on hot coffee all day long. LOL!! Well that would be the scenario in my ideal world, unfortunately work is work, so today, I thought of sharing some tips on how to dress up for work this winter, read along…

1) Little Black Dress

Till very recently, I didn’t have a LBD in my wardrobe and often didn’t understand the whole hype about one. But since I have owned a pair, I totally see how a LBD is a must for any wardrobe!! It’s such a versatile piece. Aim to get a classic chic black dress which isn’t too fancy. Not only will it provide you countless options for layering, accessorizing, dressing up or down, it will also provide you numerous outfit options!! And don’t forget that it will come in handy when laundry hasn’t been done, thanks to it’s versatility!

2) Statement Color

If you are like me and love colors, wear it! It’s 2018 and the rules for office attire are changing and colors are more widely accepted now. The key here is choose classic colors and keeping the hot pinks, blood reds and mints for the weekend. A pop of color with neutral goes a long way but definitely do not don’t overdo it.

You could also do a pop of color via your lipstick to spice up a neutral outfit. Or accessorize a neutral outfit with colors!! The options are endless!

3) Legging-Like Pants

I live in leggings, have been and will continue. No shame there! Haha!! I own a lot of pairs, from jeggings to yoga style ones… I even have a couple of work approved leggings, that are basically skinny legged work pants and are as comfy as leggings but look formal. Not only are they comfy but they work well with boots and look super chic with heels or flat ballerinas!!

4) Neutral Sweater

I always have a classic sweater on the back of my desk chair for easy access during the day because offices are always chilly. Choose a neutral color that will go with anything. Not only is it the the perfect defense against over-air-conditioned offices, but it will help you transition between seasons. If you have the liberty to, keep a couple of pieces for being more stylish.

5) Modern Blazer

I believe in less is more and quality over quantity. I used to be a quantity kinda chic earlier but then I realized that if you buy versatile good quality pieces, you can make more from less!! Invest in pieces that go from work to weekend with the change of accessories and you have won the style battle! And not to mention your wallet will be happy too!!

A modern blazer will definitely do just that – be versatile. You can choose to play with colors or keep it black, simple but always a winner!

6) Scarves

Like necklaces and earrings are a staple in my spring and summer wardrobe, scarves are a must in my fall and winter wardrobe. I have way too many scarves to even count, but believe it or not I actually wear them all. I have also shared a post on scarf styling for both men and women.

7) Your Personal Style

Don’t let your office dress code take away your spark!! The most important thing is to always embrace your personal style and wear clothes that make you feel your best and that you are comfortable be. Don’t follow trends blindly, always go accordingly to your taste and body type. When you are confident in your outfit, you will shine with confidence in everything you do. So go ahead and embrace your personal style.

Packing tips:

Winter can be brutally cold in Tahoe, so the key is to dress in layers so you can be warm while outside and shed layers when you step indoors to be comfortable. 

Thermal inner wear is a must if you are planning to go skiing, snowboarding or doing any other snow activities. Your local sports stores also have hand and foot warmer that you will be thankful for when it’s freezing and you are cold. I know for me, these are a life saver.

Definitely pack:

– Hoodies / Vests / Jackets: Key is to layer!

– Scarves: Your neck will thank you, trust me πŸ˜†

– Beanie: Ohhh yes!! An absolute must!

– Gloves: To keep those hands warm, ensure they are water resistant as that’s a key to keeping warm when doing activities in the snow.

– The outer most layer (especially when doing activities in the snow) should preferablly not be fleece, as when you play in the snow, fleece holds on to moisture and you’ll get wet and feel more cold.

– Donot carry overly large purses, and ensure your purse has a zip!!

Overall stay warm and have fun! Don’t forget to pack your adventurous side for some extra dose of fun πŸ˜‰

Hope you enjoyed my post… Until next time, stay stylish!!
