Refresh Week: A Skirt for Work

Apr 16, 2021

To be a female professional is to own a half-dozen pencil skirts.  It is your lot in life.  But while a basic black pencil is a staple, it might be time for a new style.  Enter the wrap front skirt.

I am showing this Express wrap-front skirt in burnt sienna because I love it, but it also comes in two neutral colors.  For a <$50 skirt, its a great piece that is a little different from the standard pencil.

I like the simplicity of the Express skirt, but this fold-front, tuck-wrap skirt is nice.  This crocheted skirt is from Ba&sh is also a fun summer option for cocktail or casual wear.  This faux wrap leather skirt from Amazon would be fun for fall.

Plus-size? MM LaFleur has this <$100 Logan skirt for work.  And this ruffle-front Madewell skirt is good for casual wear.

    Oooooo, I like the faux leather one. A leather skirt is on my fall wishlist assuming I’ll be back in the office.

    Great color! I know you love wrap skirts/dresses, but I find that they don’t work in San Francisco. Too gusty! I don’t always have a hand free to keep them closed while schlepping from the train to the office — back when that was still a thing, that is!

The Range: Trouser Jeans

Yesterday, we chatted about not-see-through tees. Today, I want to talk about jeans. I am so grateful wide leg denim is back in a big way. And if you’re going to the office, you need a trouser style jean to see you through the week (or just casual Friday). Here are some favorites in different […]
