Women's Work Skirts
Women's Work Skirts
Nothing matches the charm quite like an incredibly designed skirt matched with your favourite work shirt. Besides the daring pantsuit or suit-sets, no independent working woman is without a few rotational office skirts in her 9-5 workwear wardrobe. Like our billowy blouses, beautifully tailored blazers and figure-flattering pants, skirts are a staple that transition from season to season and caters to any desk to dinner scenario.
Shopping for the right work skirt
There’s something magical about a women’s work skirt. Whatever size or shape you possess, a skirt has the ability to transform even the most basic of tops and tees into corporate-appropriate attire.
A skirt is more than just a tube-shaped garment that hangs down from the waist. It’s a special item of clothing that makes the wearer look feminine, sophisticated or daring- depending on the silhouette, fabric and style. Whether you favour the universal A-line skirt or prefer a mini over a maxi style, it’s fascinating how a piece of fabric sewn into a variety of styles can suit the body shape and proportions of every woman around the world.
Keep in mind the concept of formal women’s workwear is interpreted differently depending on the office. A standard mini pencil skirt, for example, might be a-okay to wear at a fashion company. Fit and size, as a result, are two factors that you need to consider when online browsing for a collection of skirts that match most of your blouses and shirts. When it comes to colours, solid shades in deep greys, creams and jewel tones are always safe choices.
We’ve collated the top corporate skirt styles designed to complement any formal, and informal office environment-
Fluted Skirt - Petite or tall, the 9-5 working woman can always reap the leg-lengthening benefits of a fluted skirt. Fitted at the waist, thighs and skirt bottom, the skirt then flares at the hem with feminine frills. A fluted hemline doesn’t overpower a classic button-up blouse and pairs perfectly with a strikingly tailored tweed blazer.
Slit Skirt - It features the same aura of elegance as your favourite pencil skirt, but gives you just that little bit of versatility. Ideal when the cooler weather hits, a well-fitted knitted midi skirt with a slit is the perfect choice for a woman who has meetings back-to-back. A leg slit also allows you to show some skin and gives you just that little bit of legroom, so you don’t appear drowned in the fabric.
Pencil Skirt - This woman's work skirt is loved by all! A slim-line pencil skirt of any length will not only make you look the most current but is super flattering on any body type as it gives an instant hourglass shape. Team our selection of patterned or block-coloured pencil skirts with a high-neck sleeveless top, billowy blouse or classic work shirt, and finish off the look with your pumps.
A-line Midi Skirt - Knee-length or midi, the classic women’s work skirt is a figure-flattering style that gives you perfect proportions from the natural waist to leg.
Pleated Skirt - Whether you style it with a loose-fitting blouse or a fitted sweater or cardigan, a pleated midi skirt in any shade or fabric adds instant structure to your workwear attire, giving the impression of a taller silhouette. A knife or box pleated skirt is the most versatile as the pleats keep the skirt flat and smooth over the hips while adding volume at the hem.
Tweed Mini Skirt - As work skirts, our irresistible tweed mini skirts descend from the natural waist and fall a few inches from the knee- not too short for the corporate environment. Teamed with a powerhouse blazer, the tweed skirt is inherently versatile and durable. Coming in a variety of plaid and tartan colours, a tweed skirt can instantly elevate a workwear ensemble, lending tops and shoes vintage appeal.
