In 4 months, I'm starting a new phase of my life where sweatshirts are no longer acceptable. Recommend things to keep me warm!

Background: I'm a 5'2" 120 pound 23 year old American female who usually wears XS or XSP on top. I struggle to stay warm most days, which I cope with by wearing 3-4 layers (camisole, shirt, sweatshirt with nubbly inner layer, optional winter coat). In about 4 months, I'm transitioning to an environment where wearing a sweatshirt and coat will no longer be acceptable.
I'm looking for suggestions for warm, moderately-professional coverups/sweaters/jackets. I'm less interested in blazers because it's a struggle to fit the shoulders (and they often need to be dry-cleaned). I do get to wear another layer on top most days, but it's not very thick or warm.
To head off the long underwear comments, I'm looking for more, but they aren't always feasible with short sleeves. BUT: Bonus for suggestions for super-warm camisoles under $20/each and silk underwear under $60.
2. Soft (low wool content, since it makes me itch)
2. Not a sweatshirt/hoodie
3. No hood, preferably a non-stand up collar
4. Closed with buttons (if possible)
5. Available in multiple colors (grey, navy, black) is a bonus
7. Preferably under $100 (I'm looking to buy multiples)
Hope me hivemind!
