Gunn Laws: Office Chic in Cold Conditions

You don't have to sacrifice style for warmth.

"My office is freezing in the winter. What are some good pieces to add to my wardrobe to stay warm without resorting to bulky, unflattering sweaters and turtlenecks?"

I agree that bulky sweaters can be unflattering, but turtlenecks? I don't think so. If it's layering that you're after, then the turtleneck would be a piece to layer over. I have three suggestions: a chic, polished shrunken cardigan; a blazer, the style of which is up to you and your taste and lifestyle (cropped, unstructured, and classic are examples); and scarves, which can be draped, wrapped, or tied in a myriad of ways. If done correctly, an oversize scarf can be terribly chic—Parisian women are born with the talent to make this work. But think about the colors and textiles that would work best with your wardrobe. I lean more toward black and navy, but it's so much easier for men! With women's scarves, you can go wild with patterns.
