winter work outfit to commute - Lynn Mikolajczak - LM Fashion Agency

Winter work outfit

During winter, you want to maintain your professional image while keeping it warm. Pants are the most favourite work wardrobe item during winter, but also skirts can be worn when it’s cold outside. Thanks to turtlenecks and tights, you will be able to create (warm) options with your skirts. Here is a winter work outfit formula that keeps you warm yet professional.


Knitwear is mostly related to casual dressing. Although, it can look professional and work-appropriate if you opt for the right knitwear. Turtlenecks are one of those. First of all, they keep your warm and it’s a great layering item. Perfect when the temperatures inside in the office vary a lot from the temperatures outside. Secondly, they are not too oversized compared to other knitwear sweaters. So they don’t look bulky under a coat and can be worn under a blazer or a dress. Finally, the covering turtleneck creates a great balance with shorter skirts and dresses to still maintain a professional look.

The outerwear

Investing in warm yet professional-looking outerwear is a must this season. Especially when you have difficulties with finding the right fit or you love layering and don’t want to look puffy, the cape coat is your outerwear.  The cape is a fall-winter trend but also looks very polished, feminine and professional. You definitely make a statement with it when you enter the room. Also, when you are a lot on the road, for examples to visit, it’s easy to throw on for your little commute outside between the car and your clients’ office. No more wrinkled coats.

My Most-Worn Boots

Ankle boots can be worn with many work wardrobe staples. They fit perfectly with pants, skirts and dresses. Choose ankle boots in neutral colours, such as brown or black, so they will last you for many years. 


Do you not want to spend a fortune on tights you can only wear once or twice – if you are lucky? FALKE is the brand you are looking for. Already since 1895, they provide fashionable legwear made of high-quality materials. And I can guarantee you, they feel like a second skin – a warm and shaping one. For this outfit, I am wearing the Pure Matt 50 DEN semi-opaque black tights. They have a comfort waistband and extra-soft toe seams what makes them really comfortable to wear. 


Although tights are a lifesaver during your commute in winter, it remains a difficult topic for the workplace. There is no clearness about what’s appropriate or not. In some industries, tights are obligated. if that’s the case you cannot do wrong with wearing nude tights. When it comes to coloured tight, you need to be aware that they make your look more informal. Also, black tights aren’t always a good option for work. When you wear black or dark tights in general, make sure to combine them with a dark outfit. A monochrome outfit looks very put-together, polished and professional.
