Incorporating Boots in Your Winter Work Wardrobe
Sometimes it’s just too cold to brave the elements with tights and heels. But aren’t boots too informal for the workplace? Not anymore.
And with much of the nation battling rain, sleet, snow, and ice, it’s not only professional to wear boots to work, it’s practical too. Here are some great ways to incorporate boots into your work wardrobe, while still looking put- together and professional.
Pair knee high boots with tights, skirt, and blazer
Boots paired with a skirt and blazer make for a modern twist on the traditional business suit. In addition to bucking tradition in favor of trendy, you’ll also stay nice and toasty! Even Duchess Kate can rock this look. If it’s good enough for the Duchess, it’s good enough for your office.
Pair knee high boots with tights, a dress, and your favorite winter coat
It’s classic, on-point, and feminine, and a great way to keep snug in the freezing temperatures. Add chic patterned tights, and it becomes a great day-to-night outfit!
Pair a long skirt with a casual tee, and tie the look together with knee high boots.
For a more casual day at the office, try a full, knee-grazing skirt with neutral pantyhose and a casual, striped, long-sleeve top. It’s professional, comfortable, and has a stylish continental twist. Add a bold statement necklace for an extra element.
Try ankle booties with tights and a dress
Ankle booties are versatile. They provide a bit more warmth than pumps, and can be easily paired with a pair of tights and a dress for a polished work image. I love the look of this Nanette Lepore dress with ankle booties.
Pair ankle booties with jeans, a button-down, and cardigan for a casual day at the office.
Take the opportunity to showcase your unique sense of style for workplace casual days by pairing ankle booties with your favorite jeans, a crisp button-down and cozy cardigan.
These days, boots are no longer relegated to weekend wear, though it is important to make sure the completed outfit is representative of you and your company brand. Be selective in how you mix and match boots with your work wardrobe, but don’t be afraid to try out one of these looks.
