Walk into any professional work setting and you’ll be sure to see a handful of women in pencil skirts and white blouses. There is something about this combination that screams “professionalism!” and “hardworking individual!” They are timeless staples that work well for all workplaces and are quick and easy to style. What’s better than the traditional black pencil skirt and white top? It is finding the combo in the form of a dress that’s already styled for you, which is why I love the Narnia-White Top and Checked Skirt Dress.
This dress combines two classic office staples with a bit of detail for a ready-to-wear office-appropriate outfit. I love the pleated detail of the sheer white top and how it drapes over the yellow wrap belt. I also like the pattern of the skirt. From a distance it looks like a basic black and white checkered skirt, but a closer look reveals the true abstraction of the design.
For a complete office look, throw on a simple black cardigan or blazer, some sheer stockings and black or red heel. Pull it all together with a bright red lip for an extra bit of flair!
