By Maggie Malach

Although the sun is blazing outside, most office buildings approach subzero temperatures. No woman wants to bundle up for work, but there are cheap–and fashionable–ways you can stay comfortable.

Elbow-Length Sleeve Flyaway Cardigan, $39.90, Express

Sweaters do not always need to be bulky to be warm and this cardigan is proof. It’s lightweight, but provides just enough warmth to keep the chill away. Not only is it affordable, it comes in cute, neutral colors that match any woman’s wardrobe!

Beaded Embellishment Scarf, $40.00, Topshop

This year, scarves have been huge. Even though the wintry weather is far behind us, you can still rock this trend. Lightweight scarves like this one from Topshop are the perfect accent to any outfit. It will keep you warm in the office, but is still thin enough to toss in your tote.

Stoosh Military Jacket, $49.00, Dillards

For those ladies needing just a little more structure in their lives, a jacket like this is key. It adds necessary warmth and edge to an outfit. In order to keep the look summery, though, be sure to pick a light-colored fabric or seersucker. Worn over a dress or with a sleek pair of pants, this jacket also transitions easily into the fall.
