This is one of my favorite winter work looks. I love the popped collar - it allows me to throw my hair up in a bun and still look polished! I also cannot imagine heading to work in the winter without my tech gloves. I love being able to be on my phone without having my fingers freeze.

As i mentioned last week, I wanted to share some more tips with you on looking professional in your winter outerwear. If you missed my first post with tips, you can see it here.


More Tips for Professional Looking Winter Outerwear: 

1. If you are wearing a skirt or a dress, go for a longer coat
Where as last week I showed you an outfit featuring suit pants & a shorter peacoat, this week I wanted to show you winter outerwear over a dress. If I am wearing a dress or skirt I always wear a longer coat. This provides both a cleaner aesthetic and it keeps you warmer.

2. Wear Fleece Lined Tights 

When this product was first hitting the market a few years back I bought a pair and they were AWFUL. The fleece was so thick that the tights added some serious thickness to my legs.. not exactly something I wanted! I thus swore off these tights for years. Just recently though, I came across this brand with great reviews. I took the plunge and bought a pair, and now I practically live in these all winter. The fleece is subtle enough that the tights don't look thicker but they are so cozy and do keep you warmer.

3. Wear Tech Gloves 

As I mentioned above, I adore these gloves. We are all way to busy to not be able to be on our phones the entire time we are outside! There are SO many great options for tech gloves right now that I made a widget below of my favorites. Scroll through to see them all!

  9. These are great tips and I'm wondering why it's taken me so long to try fleece-lined tights. They sound so cozy. Also, tech gloves... I used to think they were ridiculous, until I had to take my freezing cold hands out of my gloves so that I could use my phone!!
