The pencil skirt affair
As Sunday comes to an end, so do our high spirits. No one wants this day to end because when it does, the most hateful day of the week starts. MONDAY. Monday means only one thing: getting back to the monotonous work schedule. We all hate that feeling, especially after a fun-filled, relaxed weekend.
Well, there is one thing that can surely make you look forward to Monday. Getting dressed for work. Just because our work might be boring, doesn’t mean that our clothes have to be. When it comes to work wear, everyone is afraid to experiment. Work wear can be fun and stylish and sexy and yet corporate at the same.
We all are under the belief that work wear or formal wear means boring trousers and shirts. That is so wrong. We even think that Indian dresses qualify as formal wear, which is again so wrong.There is so much to work wear. With our open work culture, it is so easy experiment with work looks.
So ladies, your work wardrobe should not be limited to just trousers and shirts. After all, you spend more than 250 days in your office. How is one supposed to manage with limited wardrobe? There are many more essentials which can take your work wear to next level. One such essential is PENCIL SKIRT. Yes you heard it right, it is a must have.
Though a pencil skirt might feel like too sexy for work, it gives perfectly formal vibe when teamed right.
Pencil skirts come in all shapes and sizes and are suitable for all shapes and sizes. Trust me on that. If you do not, then remember Kim Kardashian. She is short and curvy, yet she rocks pencil skirts like no one else. On second thought, it looks so much better on curvy girls.
Feeling conscious about the fitted skirts? Even thin girls can love handles, thanks to their desk jobs. Even the celebrities have a little bulge despite all that exercising and dieting. So why should you be shying away from wearing them with confidence. Just wear it with a tummy tucker and you are good to go.
For work, you can go skirts of any length. Starting from knee length, as per your comfort and your office rules. They come in different fits too.
You could go for loose fitted or body hugging skirts as per your comfort. Also, you could choose stretchable fabrics so that you could move and work in comfort all day long.
Pencil skirts look best with heels. Heels not only add the corporate touch but improves the body posture to make the pencil skirt look perfect on you. Go for pumps. Nude and black are best options to go with any color.
As there are thousands of pencil skirts available, you could go for solid colors or stripes for work. I would suggest getting a black pencil skirt as your first. It will go with anything and everything and has the power to completely transform anything into a serious corporate look. If you have an important meeting or interview, pair it with shirts. Or else, you could pair it with tops too.
Lastly wear it with confidence. You are a proud, independent working woman. There is no reason for you not to hold you head high and walk with style.
So go ahead, have a stylish Monday.
