What I Wear to Work: Yellow Summer Skirt (with Pockets)

by Rachel Yeomans | July 15th, 2014

It’s summer…and it’s hot outside. I have been wearing sleeveless dresses almost daily and have started to become a bit bored with the go-to ensemble. One of my favorite fashion write-ups in the New York Times happened to be about the fashion statement of the skirt. So I embraced that the other day. Meet one… Read more…

Today’s Coveted Working Look: Statement Skirt

by Rachel Yeomans | February 13th, 2013

I love seeing a female colleague walk into work with a bright flouncy skirt or dress on. It breathes life into the workplace, and brings a sense of “fun” into it. The best part? It can be completely work-appropriate. Here’s a current favorite of mine: the Calliope Skirt from Shabby Apple. So why not? Work… Read more…

Today’s Coveted Working Look: Lace Pencil Skirt

by Anne Dreshfield | December 3rd, 2012

If you put anything lace in front of me, odds are that I’ll try to reach out and snatch it up or whip out my wallet and ask you how much it costs. I adore lace, particularly when it’s used in a more thoughtful, modern way (no lace curtains here, please). I always do double-takes… Read more…

Business Casual: Taking a Bright Skirt to Work

by Rachel Yeomans | March 15th, 2012

By Huma Rashid Like many of you, I’m sure, I’m quite a fan of ModCloth. Their items can be rather pricey for my budget (in real life and the $100 budget I limit myself to for these posts) so it’s not that often that I buy something from there. However, I do keep an eye… Read more…

Today’s Coveted Working Look: Your Work Wardrobe and the Wool Skirt

by Rachel Yeomans | December 28th, 2011

The stereotype of the wool pencil skirt usually involves a “school girl” look in err of private school attire or the field hockey uniform. Luckily, we have Vivienne Westwood to show us how to take the wool skirt off the field and out of the classrooms – and bring it into your work wardrobe. One… Read more…

Business Casual Superstar: A Totally Romantic Skirt

by HumaR | December 8th, 2011

By Huma Rashid Generally, I am of the opinion that when it comes to what you wear to work, “romantic” should not be one of the words used to describe your outfit. “Pretty,” yes. “Delicate,” sure. “Feminine,” no reason why not. But “romantic?” Yeah, um, no. However, I totally have to make an exception for… Read more…

by Rachel Yeomans | November 30th, 2011

It may not seem like you can incorporate a zip-front skirt into your work wardrobe – but actually, Derek Lam proves otherwise. He even showcased the skirt on the runway with a perfectly appropriate work ensemble: Blouse and jacket. For those of you who have more of a sporty edge to your personal style, you… Read more…

Today’s Coveted Working Look: Ruffles and Skirt in Your Work Outfit

by Rachel Yeomans | October 11th, 2011

I absolutely love the styling of this work outfit from Tory Burch. It is a basic tie-front blouse with a pencil skirt, but the details…oh the details. The leather trim of the skirt, the pockets, and even the subtle school-girl with style look to the pumps – this entire outfit would be a fantastic go-to… Read more…

Today’s Coveted Working Look: Wearing the Leather Skirt to Work

by Rachel Yeomans | October 10th, 2011

I was cleaning out my closet (that time of year!) over the weekend, and I came across a high-waisted purple leather pencil skirt from DKNY. I haven’t worn the skirt in about two years, and looking at it, I have no idea why not! Holding it, I could just picture it with a tie-front blouse,… Read more…
