Clothing makes a statement about your attitude, preferences in life, and how you want to be perceived at work. This high-tech apparel is perfect for someone who works at a startup or wants to make a good first impression on coworkers.

Oros Orion Parka ($350)

A surprisingly warm parka given the thinness of the material, the Oros Orion is lined with an insulation material inspired by NASA. It's amazingly warm even at sub zero temps. 

Eddie Bauer Men's Catalyst Flannel Shirt ($149)

This high-tech flannel shirt uses moisture wicking tech to keep the heat inside and expel cold temps. It's ideal for working inside as well since the material breathes nicely.

The North Face Gordon Lyons Vest ($80)

With large pockets on the front for storing your smartphone, this vest is a good option for winter because it keeps your main torso warm, even during a conference room confab.

Rhone Commuter Pant ($128)

Made from a thicker polyester material to keep you warm during meetings, the Rhone Commuter Pant uses moisture wicking to keep you warm and dry (even for a run).

MM Lafleur Bianca ($495)

This wool coat has a classic designer look, but it's made by a startup that has only been around for five years. It's fully lined and thick enough for stark winter weather.

Timberland Back River Slim Herringbone Flannel ($50)

A thick flannel shirt made from a cotton twill material, this Timberland Back River shirt fits comfortably but isn't slimmed down too much (a.k.a., only for teenagers).

Patagonia Women's Jackson Glacier Parka ($399)

The 700-fill down material inside this coat keeps you surprisingly warm--even if you live in an area that gets below freezing. Two extra lined pockets also keep your hands warm.

Stio Men's Beira Wool Coat ($379)

Made from a high-tech wool blend material that repels moisture and retains heat, the Stio Beira is one of the most comfortable short jackets you'll find for wintry days.

Lululemon Commission Pant Slim ($128)

My favorite pants for work, the Lululemon Commission Pant Slim fit comfortably enough to go for a run but also work fine for investor meetings and after-work confabs.

United by Blue Bison Puffer Jacket ($228)

This short jacket is fleece-lined and designed to keep you warm all the way down to zero temps. It's also fully waterproof and lightweight enough to wear for an after work hiking trip.
