The winter season brings with itself fashion woes for daily office goers. Acing your style game in winter can be tricky, especially when it comes to work-wear. However, it does not mean you have to give up on your personal style to adjust to the temperamental climate and swap them for unappealing alternatives.

To clear the confusion, Ayushi Gudwani, Founder and CEO of FableStreet, a professional wear brand for women, and Carl Virk, Director, Carlton London share their pick of work wear essentials (apparel and footwear) for this winter season.

*A do-it-all stole: Multi-functional pieces are a sigh of relief amidst the bulky winter clothing that takes up major space in your closet. A warm stole that can double as a neck warmer and cardigan is your best bet this season. Invest in a neutral piece that can be paired with the comforting palette of winter clothing and is warm enough to keep you cozy.

* Solid knits: Knitted pullovers in solid colours are a must in your wardrobe as they are versatile in nature and compliment a variety of looks, if paired appropriately. Choose knits with a delicate texture in various colours. This is a great way to add edginess to your outfit while keeping it office appropriate. You can further accentuate your look by layering these with structured jackets / coats, cardigans, shrugs and much more.

* Trench coats: Trench coats are ‘it’ this winter season. After being all the rage in western countries, the trench coat trend has also appeared in the Indian wardrobes. Their timeless appeal makes them one of the most sought after winter friendly garment for office goers. Trench coats not only add form and structure to your attire but also are effortlessly stylish.

* Wool blend lowers: Layered leggings may sound like fun in winters, but they hardly qualify as formal wear in most offices. To reduce your distress of wearing regular lowers during the winter months, you can indulge in wool blend trousers and skirts that keep you warm. Select pieces in deep colours such as grey, burgundy, navy, etcetera and pair them with classic knits, silk shirts and blazers.

* Knee-high boots, the classics that never go out of style rise to the knee, or slightly there under. They are generally tighter around the leg shaft and ankle and fit easily at the top. They are mostly made of leather and are also available in suede. Pair up these boots with a pullover and a formal skirt to jazz up your work wear.

* Ankle boots are the most commonly worn fashion boots and are usually paired with trousers. These are available for both men and women. These boots are a perfect combination of style and comfort, and can easily be paired with dresses, skirts, jackets and blazers.

* Oxford shoe is a lace up shoe that has the bottom of lacing section sewn closed and one that also has the eyelet facings stitched underneath the vamp (front section of the shoe). These shoes are extremely popular amongst both men and women and are always recommended to pair up with a formal set of outfit for your work place.

* Pumps are the most preferred shoe style amongst the working women. These shoes are available in both wedges and heels which perfectly go with any outfit. Pumps are also known as Court shoes, a shoe with low-cut front line with either quilted silk or plain leather mostly trimmed with braid at the opening. Pumps can be paired with skirts, dresses, trousers and are perfect for work meetings, weekend brunches or Saturday nights. (IANS)

It is very important to keep your four-legged friends warm when the mercury dips as they can fall ill. Keep their bedding dry and stimulate fur growth to keep them warm during the harsh winter season, say experts.

Khushboo Katyal, dog expert and founder of brand CosmoPawliton-Be Pet Smart, and Achal Gupta, pet expert and founder of Jeffurry’s: The Pet Resort, have suggested tips on how to keep your pets warm this winter.

* Dry bedding: No one likes a cold floor. A small bed and pillow or blanket should be all what a pet needs to keep warm during cold winter nights. Give them options as well. They may prefer to switch sleeping spots to be warmer or cooler depending on the indoor temperature.

* Clothing: Use pet clothing options. Puppies are less cold tolerant because they have less muscle and fat mass than the adult dogs. Muscle and fat increase their metabolism and keeps them warm. Puppy coats won’t be as thick or long to offer protection. Little pups have less body mass to generate natural heat, too, and often benefit from a doggy sweater especially when they must do outdoor bathroom duty.

* Let that fur grow: Let the pups adjust gradually to outdoor chills. That stimulates their fur to grow thicker. Indoor pets won’t be as well equipped to spend time outside, so be aware and bring them back inside after only short trips to the bathroom and back.

* Protect skin and paws: Checking the paws of your pets in frequent intervals for any signs of cold-weather injury or damage like cracked paw pads or bleeding is very important. These injury can cause immense pain and your pets will be unable to walk.

* Try understanding problems: Try understanding what the problem is if your pet is behaving unusual. If the pet is shivering, whining, seems week or starts looking for warm places to burrow, get them back inside quickly because they are showing signs of hypothermia. If you suspect your pet has hypothermia or any other worry, consult your veterinarian.

* Avoid giving cold water or food: This is an important practice. Only give room water and warm food to your pets. Cold water and food during the harsh winter can make them fall sick and catch a cold. (IANS)
