Don't go to work dressed for laser tag (part II)

How low your neckline can go is dependent on how laid-back your office is. For the majority of lawyers, lobbyists, and government employees, options are limited to the turtleneck, mockneck, high scoopneck, high squareneck, cowlneck, boatneck and crewneck.

For those who work in jeans-are-fine offices like mine, your world opens up to the low scoop, low square, keyhole, and as long as you don't show any cleavage, the deep v-neck as well.
Cold-weather accessories follow a similar principle.

If you have business attire under that coat, stick to monochromatic (or relatively monochromatic), stick to natural materials, stick to clean lines (i.e. no hats with puff-balls on top). If you're in skinny jeans, knee high gray leather stiletto boots and an ivory brocade car coat, you can pretty much do whatever you want as long as the colors in the hat, gloves, and/or scarf you're wearing complement the colors in your coat. It's unreasonable to have every cold-weather accessory match every component in your outfit, but it is entirely reasonable to have them complement your outerwear.

If you have a kelly green showpiece coat you adore and wear three to four days a week, think about that when you're considering buying the $225 light pink Burberry-print scarf. Both are investment pieces you want to wear as much as you can, but because of their clashing colors palettes, you simply can't.

I think you know what the traditional cold-weather hats look like, but here are some recommendations for unique professional walk-to-work hats (gloves and scarves to follow tomorrow):


Top to bottom:
1. Popcorn Amelia helmet ($28 at urbanoutfitters.com)

2. Rapunzel snow cap ($199.95 at anthropologie.com)

3. Newsboy cap ($27.99 at bloomingdales.com)

4. Knit schoolboy cap ($29.95 at freepeople.com)

5. Muffy herringbone cap ($165 at shopbop.com)

6. Woven mink beret ($278 at bloomingdales.com)
