Skirts are a feminine symbol in the clothing world and also a popular item to wear for the office. However, forget grey pencil skirts paired with the same coloured, tailored jacket – they’re outdated and boring! Follow our lead for a modern approach to your workday dresscode.
Beige is an easy neutral colour to wear and it carries a cool breeze of novelty. Dark shades are overvalued in the office environment. Go for sober, but smart. When choosing long-sleeved shirts, you can dispense with the jacket, also put a hold on the cleavage. Pairing similar ecru shades and discreet patterns guarantees a fashionable look while meeting any strict dresscode you might find at your workplace. Add bright touches for a funky twist.
Lady in Red
The colour of love gets a free pass in most offices. The idea here is to make a smart choice when choosing this bold shade. In keeping with the updated look, pair a midi-skirt, in this case a long old-school pencil skirt, in red and choose a soft tone to go with it. A light blue or light pink works wonders. Just, please, avoid black! If you must wear a dark tone, opt for navy or dark turquoise. This top has hanging fabric for a cute bow knot, so use the colourful scarf on the neck tucked in the collar for a special effect. Or, if you go for a plain shirt, a colourful scarf in the tones of the look will complete your outfit gorgeously!
Grown-up School Girl
This look might be too daring for some workplaces, but you can tone it down to make it work. One of the cool trends of this season is floral patterns on a dark background. The skirt can be paired with blouses or a smart sweater like the one here. The small detail of the striped bow and little pearl buttons add an extra touch to the top. Black tights would perfect the look and, if you’re on the short side, this is the autumn pick for you!
