I don’t know about you, but I feel like this year, winter has been out for revenge! We’ve been having a few mild winters, last year I barely even noticed that it was winter and carried on wearing my normal clothes, with a jacket or a jersey on top. In fact, not one of my coats even came out to play last winter! This year however the winter has been so cold, that I have been dreaming about tropical getaways and sunshine! I can’t wait for spring to commence in the next month already. One thing that I really struggle with in winter is appropriate outfits for work. I really have to force myself to think out of the box otherwise I would just be wearing jeans every day to work, and this outfit has been one of my favourites this winter.
You can easily wear a summer dress in winter by adding some stockings and booties with it, but I feel like that trend died for me back in 2010. I’ve been trying to find winter dresses that I like, and when I found this one at Forever New, it was love at first sight. It has a tweed-like design, but it is a jersey dress so it is very warm and the material is very comfortable. This dress is currently on sale at Forever New, and they have a few other winter dresses that you can check out here. I love that’s its feminine and still sexy while looking professional and put-together.
One of my absolute favourite items in my closet is this leather jacket, I talk about it too much! I got it last year and I wear it every week! Paired with this dress it adds an edge to a professional look, which is fine at my job, but if your job doesn’t allow for that then pair the dress with a nice blazer like the one here. I finished off the look with these fabulous pearl earrings I bought on Superbalist, and my favourite thigh high boots. Again if you feel like the boots are too sexy then add a pair of stockings underneath them, or I also often wear this dress with these ankle boots that I bought on Superbalist too.
What do you think of this winter outfit? For some fun work wear inspiration also check our Leannes blog, she has a few nice winter outfit ideas! I love a nice winter floral dress like here, a warm jersey worn with a pair of black cigarette pants and of course a fabulous coat like the one over here.
