Lace Skirt for Work

Lace skirts are certainly making another come-back lately (whether they ever left is another question). They come in all sorts of colors and styles – from flirty see-though full skirts to fully-lined maxi numbers. But my favorite is the ever-stylish pencil skirt. The contrast between classic business lines and the elegance of lace always adds a bit of flirtiness to the put-together look.

The question that I’ve heard multiple times, though, is whether it is actually work-appropriate. So here’s my take on it: see what type of a lace it is. If the fabric is really delicate and intricate, it may be more appropriate for evening functions than an office. Also, check the situation with the lining, a bit of a see-through on the knees may be okay but keep it tasteful, not risqué.  

So the skirt that I found meets all my work requirements – it’s tasteful enough and doesn’t reveal too much skin; the lace is pretty but definitely not the lingerie-type; and the colors are playful but not crazy.  Pair it with a simple chambray shirt for a more casual look or with a white button-down for a sharper style, and you are good to go!

Happy Monday!
