The cold weather is here in many parts of the country. Fortunately, several companies make products that have a distinct "outdoorsy" look and feel, but fit the aesthetic of any startup. These brand new products will make you stand out in the office.
1. Oiselle Wazzie Wool Cardigan ($108)
Sporty enough for after-work runs but meant for the office, this cardigan has a unique look for women with a side zipper. It's made mostly of wool (93%) and spandex (7%). Oiselle makes products that look stylish but double as workout clothes.
2. Eddie Bauer Forest Ridge Fleece Full Zip ($99)
My favorite fleece from a company that always matches my own style, the Forest Ridge Fleece works perfect for all-day work attire. At the top, there are thick nylon overlays for extra warmth. A nice women's version comes without the nylon padding.
3. Timberland Gunstock River Reversible Down Jacket ($148)
Timberland designed a smart reversible jacket for men that looks great for a business lunch, then reverses into a down jacket for more outdoorsy excursions. The surprise--it's incredibly warm in cold weather but not bulky and feels more like a shirt.
4. Under Armour ColdGear Armour Half-Zip ($60)
UA makes products that are designed to keep you warm without the bulk and weight; and, you can use them for workouts after a day at the office. This ColdGear half-zip for women is ideal for work because the material flexes so easily for comfort.
5. Patagonia Men's Retro Pile Fleece Jacket ($139)
Going retro is a great way to make a statement at work. This extra warm fleece, made from wisely sourced materials, has spandex padding and doesn't use a seam on the sleeves that could eventually rip or tear. There's also a version for women.
6. Pikolinos Santiago Shoes ($185)
Pikolinos makes unusually comfortable shoes. Designed for wearing at work but flexible enough for a quick hike around town as well, the Santiago shoes use materials made mostly of leather with a rubber sole that can handle slick icy surfaces.
7. Stio Fremont Jacket ($219)
The trim on this winter coat is designed to flex and provide extra room, but you could wear it all day at work because it's durable and made of highly breathable materials.
