What is "winter" business casual for you?

Hello,

I'm not exactly the brightest or the "flauntiest" but I was wondering what IT folk wear during the colder seasons? Yes, I'm that ignorant. Shocking.

I've been doing fine with dress pants/khakis and polo shirts.... but now I don't know what works as far as business casual goes.

It will be up to taste, sure, but what do you like to wear during the colder seasons? Figure I could get some clues this way.

    Winter was always my favorite. I could dig up my comfy sweaters and cardigans. Usually paired with some chinos. That was my norm.

    Lycra bodysuit to keep warm, usually in Tron pattern.

    Here in Southern California, the weather goes from quite hot to rather chilly. However, in the building where I work the temperature manages to always be about the same, so I wear the same long-sleeve dress shirts and slack all year round. My only wardrobe change might be layering with a light jacket in Winter.

    If it's too cold for a short-sleeve shirt like a polo, you could always go for a cotton button-down shirt with jeans/khakis. Those tend to be a bit heavier of a fabric than your standard dress shirt, so you're going to stay warmer in them. Otherwise, you can't go wrong with just wearing a work-appropriate 1/4-zip sweatshirt over your summertime business casual.

    My preferred business casual look would be nice shoes, jeans, and long-sleeved dress shirt. In the winter I replace the jeans with slacks and wear one of my many nice sweaters.
