If you’re working a 9 to 5 job with clothes you can’t wait to take off, then you’re doing it all wrong. To the rescue is the pencil skirt, the work staple that is the ultimate in corporate-world comfort thanks to stretch materials that still look structured. We’ve kept things wallet-friendly with our selection of skirts that will see you #girlboss-ing in style.
A great print and paperbag waist update the classic pencil silhouette on this skirt, made of a cool-on-the-skin polyester blend.
The patterned weave keeps things airy and light, and the colour keeps things super-fun!
Sex appeal reigns with this figure-hugging option that features a zip detail. Made of a stretch-flex material, you’ll be sitting pretty in comfort and style.
The buttermilk colour is easy and breezy, as is the material — a polyester, linen and viscose blend. What we love is that the body-skimming silhouette is all class.
The seafoam tones, demure front slit and peplum make this crepe piece from the Singapore design house a big winner.
The bodycon fit lets you get away with wearing this skirt, made in a super-stretchy, comfortable material, to (most) offices.
This skirt is proof that Uniqlo can do no wrong; it’s made with ponte and rayon for extra softness and flexibility. The smooth fabric and functional but slightly sassy back vent create an elegant look, so you can take it from work to post-work drinks.
Made in woven fabric but with lots of stretch, we love the lilac colour and self-tie belt, which draws attention to a narrow waist.
The pencil shape is always that little bit flirtier when it’s got a bit of lace detail. Keep things minimal with the lace, in order to look smartly chic, not boudoir-glam.
Do you dare to go disco? Maybe on a casual Friday, when dancing is on the itinerary for when you clock out!
