Winter style with layering, skirt and short jacket | linkup

#streetstyle over 50 fashion blogger Nicole in winter outerwear suitable for going to work in winter

November outfits for frigid weather

There is this weather that I call “winter in Germany”, i.e. high relative humidity, windy and temperatures just below the freezing point. Gray sky, deep hanging clouds. Depressing. Creepy. It gets to the bones.

If I had the choice between weather like that and 20 below (-28.9C), low relative humidity with clear blues skies, I would chose the latter over the former any time. Sounds weird for everyone who hadn’t been in the latter weather – yet or who is a beach gal. I know, I know.

Pattern mix diamonds with glen check winter work outfit

Midi skirt, tights, over-the-knee boots, sweater at the office and an old diamond leopard print jacket as outerwear to stay comfortable. Can you believe I have this jacket since I was a teenager?

Winter office look with sheath

I have a knack for sheath dresses. They are easy to style up and down depending on whether I meet with students, the Dean or Director, or have a meeting or to give a talk. They are very, very versatile, nearly chameleons in the closet. Do I have to say also that they are a classic that never goes out of style? It’s just how you style it to not look like a leftover statist from the Mad Man TV series. The same outfit idea just in another color gives you already a new office look – like one dress two ways.

Every woman should own at least one sheath dress. #agelessstyle Click To Tweet

Casual posh layering

Casual Friday doesn’t just mean jeans and T-shirt. Take a look of what weekend clothes you have in your closet and combine them for new looks for Friday at work.

Style tip: When layering make sure to accentuate your waist to not look frumpy.

  1. Even though you live in a super cold place you always look amazing, Nicole. Love all these looks. Great fur coats and I love those burgundy boots so much!

    Happy December! Welcome by and join my linkup this week and every Thursday. Thanks, Ada. =)

  2. I just love the diamond pattern on this jacket, it is so unique yet looks so sophisticated!

  3. Hi, Nicole
    Your jacket from high school looks like it’s still in perfect shape! You must have taken such good care of it. And I love those Vince Camuto chain-detail boots and that green outfit!
    Thanks for showing us how you do it!
    Angie

  4. The diamond leopard print jacket is fabulous, and so unusual! I prefer cold crisp days to grey and miserable weather. It’s been horrible here in the UK, so grey and raining non stop. I want to see the sun again!

  5. Georgeous Outfit, dear Nicole! Love the combi of the jacket and the midi-skirt. You look very pretty 🙂
    I like the burgundy sheath dress and the casual friday look with the BR skirt very much too.

    Lots of love,
    Nadine

  6. I always enjoy your fashion mixes, Nicole. I cannot believe you can still ear something from HS, that ship has sailed for me-LOL! I really love the CK burgundy dress and boots combo and would wear it in a hot second. Have a great week! P.S. Thanks for the feature!

  7. These outfits are perfect for our cold weather. You rocked these coats with your outfit like no other. They look chic and warm at the same time. And I would never guess that the jacket is from your teenage time. WOW it looks amazing on you and you elevated it beautifully.

    Thank you for featuring me today. I am honored.

  8. Ha, I’m definitely one who can’t even imagine 20 below. I break out the parka at 30 degrees. That diamond jacket is great.
    x, Julie

  9. Nicole, I am loving your coats and boots! All great outfits made even more spectacular by the boots and coats! That first coat has me dying over here!
