Rock Cosy, Corporate-Chic Work Wear this Winter with Miss Ruby Legwear
It’s that time of year again –there’s a chill in the air and everyone in the office is clutching their piping hot coffee that bit tighter. But winter’s not all about freezing mornings and gloomy afternoons – it’s also a great chance to switch up your wardrobe and put together some fab new seasonal outfits.
Of course, combining comfort, style and professionalism isn’t always easy. That’s why, at Miss Ruby Legwear, we’ve rounded up some of our favourite chic clothing combos from the Australia’s hottest retailers to keep you warm this winter.
Today’s post is going to help you achieve a classic, corporate-chic look that combines professionalism with just a touch of European charm.
Let’s get started!
To create a fashionable, winter work outfit, we started with a simple but elegant black jumper. Choose a long-sleeved, straight hemmed knit, like the Alexander Wang T Fine Knit Sweater (Farfetch – $89.63). The important thing is to ensure that your jumper is form-fitting enough to tuck into your skirt and keep with your professional look.
Next, sticking to winter’s gorgeous, moody colour palette, pair your jumper with a charcoal or slate grey pencil skirt. The stylish, slim-cut Mikala Tweed Suit Skirt (The Iconic – $49.95) is a great option. Hitting just above the knee, it offers a sophisticated twist on a timeless office fashion staple.
Winter is the perfect time of year to rock a pair of dark, heeled ankle boots. The BiLLiNi Eden Boots (The Iconic – $89.95) are gloriously on trend, sporting a generous heel to elongate your legs and a charming rose-gold buckle to provide a hint of edge. If you’re over blacks and greys, add some colour by opting for chocolate or taupe boots instead.
Now we’ve got the basics down, it’s time to infuse this corporate ensemble with some European flair, starting with a patterned scarf. While loud prints don’t scream workplace friendly, a well-placed pattern against an otherwise sombre backdrop can add an appropriate but playful touch to jazz up any outfit. Try the OXFORD Dionne Print Scarf (Oxford – $17.25), in cheeky leopard print.
To truly complete your Parisian look, you’ll need a pair of opaque pantyhose. Hosiery is a great way to easily add extra professionalism to your look and keep your legs cosy at the same time. We love the Pretty Polly Black Opaque Tights (Miss Ruby Legwear – $22). Their silky smooth finish lends a whisper of sex appeal to an otherwise corporate outfit while their durability promises to stop us worrying about any embarrassing splits or runs while on the job.
Finish your winter work outfit with a trendy, belted trench coat, like the military-inspired ASOS Classic Mac (ASOS – $83.01). Worn open, it’ll keep you warm on the coffee run while adding an extra element of interest to your ensemble.
And there you have it, ladies – a simple, winter work outfit that effortlessly combines professionalism, sophistication and comfort. If that’s not something to smile about this winter, we don’t know what is!
