3 Trendy Ways to Wake Up Your Winter Work Wardrobe

When it’s cold and snowy, it hard to feel motivated to go to work, let alone know what to wear. If you’ve been feeling a bit blah, then incorporating something new and trendy can be a great pick me up in the middle of winter.

Here are three new fashion trends to perk up your work wardrobe this winter.

Print dress for work

 

Wear a Classic Dress in a Modern Print

If you like to stay modern and staying current at the office, but worry about getting a trend wrong and looking like mutton dressed as lamb, don’t fear!  This first look is the easiest, way to rock a trend. All you need to do is look for a classic piece in a modern print.

I love this waist-whittling dress with faux wrap middle. It would be lovely in a solid but in this modern print, it is absolutely wow! You can wear it with simple pumps or, for extra warmth in the winter, go with knee-high boots.

 

Violet blouse

 

Add an On-Trend Spring Color Before it Hits the Stores Big-Time

Pantone’s 2018 Color of the Year is Ultra Violet followed closely by this color, pink lavendar. Any shade of purple such as this communicates originality, ingenuity and visionary thinking, and that’s what it will say about you if you wear it now, instead of waiting until everyone else has gotten on the bandwagon.

I love it in this delicate figure-flattering blouse with the corset style lace-up waistline. This color is so pretty that you’ll want to keep the rest of your outfit simple and low-key to let it take center stage.

 

White booties with plaid skirt

 

Wear Classic Booties in Trendy White

This last look featuring trendy white booties is definitely the most fashion-forward of the bunch and probably best suited for more women in more creative professions like interior design, fashion or public relations, for example, or for women who work in casual offices and prefer a bolder fashion aesthetic.

But before the rest of you dismiss them out of hand, you should know that white footwear is a huge trend for 2018. We’re already starting to see white slides, flats and loafers pop up and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Given that, I suspect you’ll get a lot more wear out of these cute booties than you think. Pair them with this plaid tie-front skirt for an incredible head-turning outfit.

Do you love trends? How do you find the sweet-spot between being on-trend without being too trendy?

  1. I love the outfits and the ideas you present and I appreciate your help and expertise! I use your advice often and access the website weekly for color and coordination ideas. I own some of the pieces from Nordstrom and Macy’s that you recommended. However as I head into retirement with a more limited income, I was wondering if you might also think about the idea of presenting a less expensive option as a comparison point. The outfits presented are $500 – $1000 per outfit. Totally gorgeous mind you, but maybe for the main item is there a comparative option that you would recommend at a lower price point, for example show the $350 dress and also show an alternative at 150-200 price ?
