We all know it can be really difficult to select what’s right when it comes to office winter workwear. It’s key to ensure that your employees are comfortable and warm at work, they’re also professionally representing your company.

Big jumpers, scarves and hats are not for use in the office, but there are a few items that are great for your staff to wear both in the office and around when the temperature drops.

Sweatshirts & Hoodies

Sweatshirts and Hoodies can be worn as part of the onsite uniform for your staff, underneath any PPE or outer hi-visibility layers. They provide an extra layer of warmth when the temperatures go lower and when you’re working outdoors this is key.

As well as having obvious on-site benefits in the winter months, stylish branded hoodies and sweatshirts are a great way of promoting the company away from the site itself. As they are often worn to and from work, at home and so on, they can be combined with a promotional message to maximise impact!

Similarly to hats, these products can be ordered in a variety of colours to meet brand or operational specifications.

Long Sleeve Shirts & Blouses

For corporate businesses, smart shirts in the office are an absolute requirement. As the lower temperatures hit us, it’s time to ditch the short sleeve shirts in favour of thicker, long-sleeved tailoring. This is also a particularly good alternative to allowing staff to wear fleeces/jackets in the office, as a way of keeping the cold out.

When it comes to blouses and shirts, quality is crucial. Whether you’re attending important meetings or events, first impressions always count and those generally tend to come from the way your employees present themselves in terms of clothing.

High-quality shirts are easily distinguishable from the cheaper ones, and are always worth the investment for your brand image and make sure your staff will be proud to wear them.

Here at PPE Stores, we stock a range of men's and ladies long sleeve shirts & blouses from top brands. comfortable, stylish and made with cotton and polyester blends, we have the shirts and blouses to suit you.


Fleeces are the ideal way to add an extra layer of warmth on those colder days in the office. While office workers will usually benefit from the luxury of central heating in the winter, it’s not uncommon to get the occasional cold chill indoors, especially when manoeuvring around the building.

Easy to throw on over a shirt, fleeces are warm and comfortable to wear indoors. Having one to hand, it’s a simple way to keep your employees happy and focused on the job at hand rather than being distracted by the cold.

When wearing indoor outer layers in a corporate setting, they must retain the company’s professional image and ensure that employees look presentable at all times.

PPE Stores have an extensive range of fleeces available in a variety of styles and colours to suit your current office uniforms and branding.


In building, businesses are always looking for workwear and PPE that helps their employees to embrace the winter chill, ensuring work can continue despite the cold front.

Woolly hats can complement other thermal workwear layers to create the perfect, comfortable attire for the season. Woolly hats are also essential in reducing heat loss if all other areas of the body are covered.

Hats can be ordered in a variety of colours, meaning there will be a product to suit your company brand. Furthermore, different colours can be utilised to represent different units on-site just like helmets can.


The cold and wet travelling into work can be unbearable during these colder months. To make it to the office with clothing as dry as possible, preparation is key. So, warm and waterproof outer layers are a must-have for the festive period.

This is a great opportunity to provide your employees with a practical piece of clothing that will not only help to keep them warm and dry during the battle with the great British weather but also act as an advertisement for your corporate brand whilst out and about.

If professional-looking, waterproof and warm jackets are what you’re looking for, you’ll find that here at PPE Stores.

Construction Winter Workwear

The winter months can be long and hard for those who work outdoors on construction sites. Luckily for us all, advancements are always being made with regards to workwear and PPE that tackles the plummeting temperatures, strong winds and consistent downpours.

Cold weather can impact concentration and mobility. Deeper exposure to the cold can often result in hypothermia or worse. But how do we ensure that we’re keeping our workforce warm whilst also adhering to health and safety regulations? Here are four winter workwear items that do just that.


Wearing the correct, adequate footwear will always be a necessity when on site. It is vitally important that you provide all of your workers with boots that are both comfortable and protective.

Why the correct footwear is very important.

With the right shoes on their feet, workers are protected from serious foot injuries in a hazardous environment. Handling heavy tools and equipment increases the likelihood of crushes, punctures and lacerations while the strenuous activity involved on the job can lead to sprains.

Comfort is also a key factor here. Construction jobs can often demand long periods of standing, so you will need to offer footwear that provides good support. Maintaining an upright stance for hours on end can be tiring and, without supportive footwear, it can lead to cases of arthritis and rheumatism.

Why footwear is particularly important in the colder months

The winter weather can create adverse working conditions and as an employer, you need to be prepared for this.

Hi-Vis Outer Jackets

When the dark winter nights draw in, and the days are generally cloudy and dull, hi-vis can be particularly important in terms of hazard prevention. Naturally, hi-visibility will always be needed in factories and on construction sites but there are outer layers that have been specifically designed for colder weather.

This makes it the perfect hi-vis outerwear piece for the entire year, but particularly in the winter when users can make the most of the quilted lining.


Heavy-duty jackets may not be necessary for everyday wear, even here in Britain. Sometimes, we just want a light jacket that will protect us from the rain but is also easy enough to pack into a bag on the off chance that the weather holds up. Softshell jackets are the perfect outer layer for those days.

The lighter fabric of a softshell jacket allows for maximum breathability and movement, while its water-resistant features ensure that you’re protected from the elements. When embroidered with your company logo, you’re reaping the added benefits of your employees promoting your brand with every wear.
