The Working Girls’ Guide to Staying Warm (And Looking Chic) At The Office

Baby, it’s cold inside… or at least in my office. Since space heaters are illegal, I’ll be keeping a cardigan at my desk to keep from turning into an icicle. But after carefully plotting my outfits, I’m not about to toss on just any old thing to ward off the drafts. The trick is to look pulled together – not sloppy – and as if the whole look was planned.

This buckle-front cardigan ($89.50) from MICHAEL Michael Kors has a laid back feel that’s perfect for tossing over the back of your chair. The built-in buckle makes it look instantly pulled together.

A little dressier thanks to a concealed, snap-button placket, this cardigan ($68) poses as a jacket, and will blend perfectly with your 9-to-5 attire.

This long, drapey cardigan ($181) from Smitten, at Piperlime with a touch of cashmere is perfect and with short sleeves, you won’t get too warm. Throw it over a dress during the workday, or wear it with jeans and a belt on weekends.
