Business Casual Winter Capsule

Create a winter capsule wardrobe that will make you excited to get dressed for work.

Posted in: Style & Wardrobe • November 30, 2018

The Dani pinafore, the Jill coat, the Delavan blazer, the Rachel shirt, the Channing pants, the Nora sweater, the Neenah top, scarf, booties, tights, loafers, and earrings.

We have all been there. It is the dead of winter, you're cold, and you're bored with everything in your closet. You have fallen into a weekday dressing rut. So you pull on your trusty sweater—you know the one you bought at the Gap in seven colors—put on your wool coat, and call it good.

There is nothing wrong with this outfit. It's warm and comfortable, and probably pretty cute, but sometimes it is good for your soul and your creative juices to put on something that reflects your creativity, especially in an office setting where it can be really easy to get into a funk.

That is why we put together this winter capsule perfect for the office—to help inspire you to wear your creativity on your sleeve. Literally.

Keep it Cozy with These Fabrics

  • Sweater knits are perfect for creating beautiful sweaters and dresses with that hand-knit look.

  • Give even the most basic knit top the royal treatment by using merino jersey. Wool has the magic ability to keep you well insulated while also providing wicking and antimicrobial properties.

  • Adding a lining or an underlining is a great way to add extra warmth to a garment.
