Lady moving to Boston from Virginia. What are your Work winter clothing essentials?

I work in a wear-suits-to-work field. In VA, winter dressing means adding a coat, hat and gloves to my indoor clothes, no special equipment. Snow is a novelty.
In Boston, I'll be walking/taking the T to work (hooray!).
Please give me advice on coats that are warm enough, but look classy (are there classy puffy coats, or does warmth win out?) and footware options (snowboots? Do folks change shoes at work a la working girl?). Is long underwear necessary?
What are your tips for looking polished after braving the weather?
Thanks for the wisdom, y'all.
