. SUMMER PENCIL SKIRTS & WHITE BLOUSES .
Dressing for the office in the Summer is no easy feat, there’s a matter of maintaining ones modesty but at the same time keeping cool and looking smart. It’s a balancing act that even the greatest can get wrong. As I work full time as a planning Director in the media insdustry, dressing for work is something i’m constantly doing & also something that really dictates my wardrobe and purchases. I absolutely do not have a work versus weekend wardrobe, i’m not a fan of that, i’m all about wearing the clothes I like but tailoring them for which ever occasion.
. ASOS PENCIL SKIRT . ZARA PATENT PUMPS . CELINE NANO . H&M BLOUSE .
I’ve gotten the work look wrong many a time, accidentally short dresses or over covering and being boiling hot. It’s not an easy styling challenge, but one easy win i’ve grown fond of over the years in the pencil skirt. So long as you pick a quality skirt, that’s not too short & isn’t uncomfortable, the pencil skirt is an easy summer outfit win for workwear. They look perfect with a simple cami, shirt or blouse tucked in, dependent on the occasion. And you can team the skirt with heels, sandals or even pumps dependent on your mood, and either way the look will work. Possibly my favourite thing about the pencil skirt is the ability to transform it from work to night simply by tweaking your shoes, top or even more simply your makeup. It’s my fail safe trick for post work festivities.
I’ve been styling this ASOS pencil skirt with my Zara patent pumps and H&M blouse for work lately, the outfit is so comfortable but looks chic enough for the office but fun enough for post work summer fun.
What’s your go to summer office look? Are you a fan of the pencil skirt for summer?
