Outfit of the Week: Polished Layers

When your rotation of workday outfits starts to feel boring, it's time to play with textures and colors. Begin with an ice-blue nubby turtleneck that feels extra soft against the skin. This one is cut away from the body, offering ample room for layering up on those extra cold days. Then add a patterned skirt — the cool hue on top picks up the grayish-blues on bottom, tying the two together.

A navy coat keeps up the color scheme. This one looks far more expensive than it is, thanks to its sleek design and little details like the hit of cobalt blue under the collar. Finish off with tights and ankle boots, and you're ready to face the day.
