After a summer of automated out of office responses, the coming winter months brings an influx of appropriate cold weather workwear. Whatever your workplace’s dress code, it never goes unnoticed by clients, colleagues and your boss if you make an effort with your wardrobe.
Below is the pick of a failsafe winter business look which will allow you to express your individual style, look good and therefore feel good. The colour palette – burgundy, charcoal grey, burnished brown – is quite safe, but with a luxe feel.
Canali’s signature ‘Kei’ fit is a relaxed but refined single-breasted coat. Its soft charcoal hue and tactile herringbone wool make it a stylish and versatile piece to tackle the cold weather this winter.
Refined Italian label Ermengildo Zegna is renowned for luxurious tailoring, and this jacket is the perfect example as to why. Woven from a tactile mix of wool, silk and linen yarns, this lightweight blazer is cut for an easy and flattering fit with impeccable attention to detail. The burgundy tone is a great alternative to a classic navy or grey jacket.
A grey pair of trousers will become the bread and butter in a winter business wardrobe, and this option from Prada is distinctive, quirky yet wearable. Spun from virgin wool, these jersey trousers have a modern shape with pressed creases and cuffed hems. The clean lines and considered grey hue makes them a smart but comfortable choice for working days.
Edward Green’s dignified approach to craftsmanship ensures its shoes are made with the highest attention to detail. This pair of penny loafers have been designed exclusively for Mr Porter and are a timeless classic with their premium leather construction and handsome dark-brown hue.
