Modern Workplace Pencil Skirt Styles
Let’s make the corporate world fashionable again. There’s nothing wrong with a skirt that is ladylike and professional. The classic silhouette of the pencil skirt has been given upgraded modern twists that we’re absolutely thrilled about. For summer, our Stylists know all about the trends for pencil skirts that you can wear in the office.
Adding floral to your look is always fun. If you’re unsure how to style this statement piece, we’re here to help. For example, with lighter floral patterns, choose tops in soft colors and fabrics.
For most girly girls, lace is the ultra feminine fabric. Our Stylists’ top picks this season include pairing your lace skirts with a light pinstripe shirt, oversized cashmere knit, or figure-hugging.
For spring/summer the denim pencil skirt is a must-have. While denim may not be an appropriate fabric in the office, linen in denim colors makes a great professional looking alternative, while staying true to the trend. This look is chic and effortlessly cool, making a perfect addition to any summer wardrobe.
If diamonds are a girl’s best friend then sequins on skirts are the next best thing. To keep this look day-time appropriate, keep your top, accessories, and shoes simple. A classic white blouse or black tee will instantly elevate this look from disco diva to high fashion trendsetter.
Our go-to palette for spring/summer has two major players, blush pink and canary yellow. When it comes to coordinating an outfit with your new colorful pencil skirt, we have a few different style approaches:
#1 Create a monochromatic look by matching your skirt and top. Select a color that suits your complexion to create a truly complementary, confident look.
#2 Pair your colorful skirt with a basic black or white blouse for a crisp, clean look which draws attention to the lower half of your figure. Unfoldid Styling Tip: This is a great look for V and H silhouettes!
#3 When it comes to fashion, opposites attract! Match colors that are opposite each other on the color wheel. For example, if you’re wearing a pink skirt, try pairing it with a green shirt.
