When it comes to fall workwear essentials, there are few styles as put-together and feminine as the pencil skirt. They are polished, profession-looking, and still flirty enough to change your top and wear from office to evening. Here are 13 chic new ways to wear the pencil skirt this fall:
Make head-to-toe color work for the office by opting for burgundy or navy. Keep your silhouette simple with a turtleneck sweater and classic pumps, but take the opportunity to rock some statement jewels.
Cupcakes & Cashmere
Pairing your pencil skirt with an edgy moto jacket is a great way to make the workwear favorite a bit more youthful.
When reaching for a bright pencil skirt, keep the rest of your look subdued with neutrals or more understated color.
Style Me Grasie
Make lace work for the office! All you need is a simple white top and you’re set!
Whether in a bold color or classic neutral, slim down your midi skirt this fall and opt for a structured shape. This slightly longer pencil silhouette is a modern take on the traditional office go-to.
Go printed with a knee-length pencil skirt that’s whimsical yet conservative. Pair it with a classic button-down shirt and pointed-toe pumps to ensure you’re boardroom-ready.
A turtleneck sweater is a great option for those of you who don’t want to think too much about extra accessories. The high funnel or draped cowl neck gives your office look an extra dimension of detail without extra fuss.
The Girl From Panama
If you’re not ready to give up on your cotton T-shirt just yet, turn it into an office staple by tucking it into a printed pencil skirt and throwing a tailored blazer on top.
As the brisk fall season approaches, turn to materials like leather or suede when dressing for work. We love this high-waisted style, nipped in with a wide belt.
If you tend to keep your color palette more traditional and opt for a conservative button-down and pencil skirt pairing, take the opportunity to add a statement shoe or piece of jewelry for flair.
Go for white (yes, even after Labor Day!) to brighten your look and pair it with a lightweight chambray button-down and mules.
With Love From Kat
Mix high and low by pairing a chic leather pencil skirt with a plaid button-down. Both pieces make each other work for the office, as the casual top balances the evening vibe of the skirt.
Whether you’re going monochromatic, or mixing hues, play with texture when getting dressed for work. We love this bonded vinyl skirt, mixed with a chunky knit.
