Are you tired of wearing the classic pencil skirts and A-line skirts for work? If you are, then it means that it´s about time to add details and creativity to your work wardrobe by going for stylish skirts and finding ways to wear them to work.
That doesn´t mean that you have to go trendy to the office. Pleats, wrap style, or diagonal hemline are some options to consider. You still want to stick with professional-looking colors such as black, deep red, or navy blue, but you´ll go out-of-the-box when it comes to detailings. So, without further ado, here are some stylish skirts for work that are also fun and creative.
1. Red Pleated Skirt
This skirt mimics the silhoette of the classic pencil skirt but it´s fitted only from the waist down below the second hips. After that are tiny pleats which allow you to move freely while still keeping that sophisticated look.
If the skirt is short, always wear it with black opaque tights to keep things professional. But if the hem is longer, you can wear it with nude tights or even with bare legs.
2. Sweater Knit Skirt
Perfect for fall and spring, or if you´re office is freezing due to airconditioning, this striped, knitted skirt with midi length will add style and femininity to your work wardrobe. You can wear it with a simple white top (tucked in) and a cropped, quarted-sleeved jacket, for a put-together, polished look but doesn´t scream overly conservative. The best thing about the skirt is the varied types of shoes that you can wear it with – from strappy high heels to sleek ankle boots.
But of course, if the weather calls for thicker, long-sleeved sweaters, you can have fun with knitted sweaters to pair with your skirt too.
3. Metallic Pleated Skirt
This metallic, pleated skirt will surely freshen up your work wardrobe. It´s both trendy and sophisticated, so it´s safe to wear to work. It also has assymetrical wrap which is an update to the normally, knee-length pleated metallic skirt.
It´s available in black and gold. I love the gold more than the black. In fact, I have a similar skirt in gold. The only difference is my skirt doesn´t have the assymetrical wrap. But since the gold versiona is bolder than the black, you may opt for the black multi instead, to keep it safe at the office.
4. Assymetrical Pencil Skirt
This is your classic pencil skirt with an update. The asymmetrical, wrap front hints of your forward, out-of-the-box thinking. The twilight color is also a more refreshing option than black. The only catch about this skirt is, you need to be long-legged or have a good vertical proportion to look great in this skirt, thanks to its assymetrical hem.
If you´re short-legged – extra petite or long torso and short legs – the assymetrical hem will make your legs even shorter.
5. Not So Simple Black Skirt
It´s supposedly a simple black skirt but due to its pleats effect and graceful swinging, this is a skirt that you can wear from work to date. Create a monochromatic look for the office, and then swap the black and white top with a sexy red top for date.
6. Leather Pleated Skirt
If adding edge is your goal for your work outfits, then this vegan leather pleated skirt is waiting for you! It has an A-line silhouette but with a pleated layer of leather for an illusion of front wrap. However, it´s important to remember that the pleated layer in front may add you tummy. So if you already have a bigger tummy, this style may not flatter you.
7. Levelled-Up Suit Skirt
A very sophisticated modern pencil skirt is how I´d describe this Giselle Skirt. It´s all about that cascadin layer of skirt. So the only way to wear this style is to pair it with a minimalist, fitted top with short sleeves. A minimalist top doesn´t have to fade int he background though. Choose one in glittery silver to really complement the statement of your skirt.
So these are the seven ways that you can inject creativity to your work wardrobe, by choosing skirts that are stylish, fun, yet work-appropriate.
