Winter is definitely here with snow falling around the country but obviously the Manchester weather reuses to take part and stays resolutely rainy, as always. However, it's still very chilly and it's made me realise that I don't have any fully winter proof clothing, particularly more formal clothing. I personally work from home currently but from my time at university, I know how difficult it can be to dress more formally for the winter months!

Dressing for winter and seasonal transition periods can be pretty difficult, especially with the weather we have in England which can be gloriously sunny, then pouring down and maybe throw in some hailstone too...in England it's best to prepare for all weathers which isn't very easy. Winter coats, boots, cosy knitwear and even wellington boots would all make great winter workwear wardrobe essentials.

BonMarche have created a 'what workwear style suits you?' quiz that can you access below which might help you to find new pieces for your workwear wardrobe and make the process of shopping for your workwear this winter a little easier. The quiz only takes a minute and at the end you can shop the style you've been assigned.

I have taken the quiz and I received the 'Karen Brady Power Dresser' result and to be honest I actually love most of the items within the 'get this look' section. BonMarche has such a wide range of clothing from loungewear, pyjamas, causal clothing and great workwear options that I think would be ideal for a range of jobs. Whether you work in an office, at a school, in retail or if you work from home, you'll find something on BonMarche. Opting for items that can be paired with many items, classic pieces and essentials that can be worn again and again will make that rush in the morning a little easier; additionally planning your outfit the day before can save time!

I may currently work from home but that doesn't mean that I don't need to fully get dressed as I would do for a 'normal' or office based job, for example. My typical work day outfit consists of jeans, a thick and cosy jumper and a very warm coat, if I have to take photographs outside, for example. There are so many items I could choose from on BonMarche, you can see some of my ideas above and I also have my eye on pretty much the entire knitwear range as cosy knits are staples of my winter casual and workwear wardrobe!

Have you taken part in the above quiz? What do you think of these winter workwear ideas from BonMarche?
