How To Wear a Work Skirt (even when you're not at work!)

You ladies asked for a work skirt that is comfy but not boring and just because you wore it to the office doesn’t mean it can’t do double duty at a fancy dinner or coffee date. For a skirt to work in an office it needs to be well made, the correct length for the environment and it needs to be able to be paired back with multiple tops to create as many looks as possible. Ugh, I know that sounds like the holy grail of shopping a perfect wardrobe but I’ve got you covered babes with the Sarah Skirt.

Features of a good black work skirt

The Sarah skirt has a dipped rear hem to elevate your style, is made from stretch bengaline which bounces back into shape, has an elastic waist with cute blush pink  drawstring tie and has snack-holes (pockets). You can tuck the tie for office wear and let it feature when wearing the Sarah skirt for fun.

How to wear a work skirt when not at work

So how do you make a ‘work skirt’ adapt for fun? Easy…

The easiest way to adapt a work wear skirt to play is with your choice of footwear. A white or coloured sneaker adds a relaxed and comfy vibe, we all know I am a huge fan of sneakers with a skirt or dress…any skirt or dress.

Adding a plain tee like our Ceci, Tayla or Jenni tees to a skirt with a denim vest is perfect for weekends. Team with the Chloe stripe tee and a denim jacket or leather jacket and let the blush pink waist tie show. Wanna make it more edgy? Add a tee with a rock slogan and a blingy statement neck piece.

Make it fancy

The same rules apply for evening or events. Choose some statement heels or fun sandals and make that work skirt shine with a pretty blouse like the Cait top and great accessories. Think about adding a blouse in on trend colours or patterns or luxe it up a bit with flashy fabrics like the Celeste cape.

When looking for 'work wear' always try to think of ways you can get 'more' from your pieces. Have fun thinking up new outfits!
