The slim fitting pencil skirt is an elegant wardrobe piece, great for workwear, evening wear and even casual wear, so a statement pencil skirt is the best way to take your style to the next level. I’m currently working with a personal styling client, who desires a more tailored, sophisticated and corporate based wardrobe. Interestingly enough, it then occurred to me that this may also prove quite a struggle for many other women. The challenge with a modern day corporate wardrobe is finding the perfect balance between keeping it professional and stylish, yet still complimentary to your personal style.
Being corporate isn’t just all about suits and button shirts, it’s about being presentable, structured and strategically tailored. Being yourself isn’t frowned upon in the business world but being ‘too’ casual and informal is. This look is an elegant outfit put together for a business meeting. Although it’s fresh and simple with the usual black, it’s also very structured and sophisticated with the hint of personal flare by adding print and colour through wearing the statement striped pencil skirt. Also the silver embellishment detail on the blazer’s shoulders adds some interest to an otherwise basic wardrobe staple.
