After needing to dress up for an event the other day, I realized I seriously need a better professional wardrobe. So, help me out!

I'm looking primarily for things that will keep me warm in <30° weather.

I like comfy clothes. My primary wardrobe is jeans and a long sleeve shirt or sweater. I think I'll want mostly slacks, sweaters, maybe a few leggings and skirts and boots. I refuse to wear leggings by themselves.

I'm 5'4", not too curvy, have small breasts, prefer non-heeled shoes, weigh 115 lbs.

Photos of clothes will be helpful!

I've included a photo of my current style to help you visualize. Suggestions of stores to shop at will be very helpful! I'm on the east coast.

The red in the tomato highlights the red in my hair, it's true.

I'm wearing a pink onesie with gray polkadots and a butt flap. Consider this a bump.

Thanks, mama. I got some great suggestions in my thread the other day and I think I have a pretty good idea of what's currently trending, but I thought this might be a good way to get a better idea of different outfits. I don't want to be limited to what's currently trending and would like to try to bring some of my own style to the table.

Judging by what many women in this group deem acceptable professional attire I'm sure your post will be riddled with nonsense.

There is a blog I love outfitposts.com where she shares her professional style. I tend to get inspiration for outfits from her.

I did giggle out loud. I wonder how a onesie would look over a taco suit.
