When it comes to selecting stylish brightly colored clothes for the office, it is important to remember less is more.

Stay warm and stylish this season with cozy knit sweaters, tops, dresses, and jackets. Most knits are considered casual yet are versatile enough for dressier or more work-appropriate looks.

Try pairing a light knit wrap over a classic tee and high-waisted pencil skirt. Alternatively, you could rock the same sweater with a slim fitting dress, just cinch the waist with a belt to create a shapely silhouette.
