Fits perfectly: find your favourite cut at Esprit
When it comes to business-style skirts, you are spoiled for choice between different cuts and always show new sides to you. Choose women's skirts that best suit you and your character:
- Classic pencil skirts
- Slightly flared A-line skirts
- Pleated skirts
- High-waisted high-waisted skirts
- Comfortable stretch skirts
The classic pencil skirt has a figure-hugging fit and a narrow tapered hem. It is the perfect choice among women's skirts if you want to be absolutely sure at the official meeting.
The slightly flared A-line, on the other hand, conveys more looseness and femininity, which romantically plays around the leg with its swinging hem and has a concealing rather than accentuating effect.
With a pleated skirt, you can style yourself perfectly for a youthful, fresh business outfit with a summer feeling and you are absolutely up to date.
If you want to conjure up long legs and visually cheat a few centimetres, the waist-emphasizing high-waist model is just right for you.
Comfortable stretch skirts are a real insider tip if you spend a lot of time at work. They have a high percentage of elastane and fit like a second skin.
A perfect business look at the office
Femininity definitely fits in at the office. With a fashionable selection of stylish skirts for women, you ensure a confident appearance at the office. Business trousers can stay in your wardrobe for the next meeting and you also convince with variety and freshness.
How short can the skirt be at the office?
So that you are guaranteed to leave the right impression at work, skirts should not be too short here. With a midi or knee length and a figure-hugging but not too tight fit, you are well appointed at a meeting or a customer appointment.
But even if you are sitting behind a desk, your business skirt should not slide too far up.
As a rule of thumb for the office: a maximum of one hand width should fit between the hem and knee – your thigh should be covered at least 3/4.
Business outfits made easy
The office skirt exudes a particularly classic elegance. In the best case, this can also be found in your remaining outfit. You are therefore on the safe side with a subtle white or solid colour blouse in a classic style.
In the shoe department, high heels or pumps with closed toes and moderate heels are a stylish choice. In combination with subtle silver or steel jewellery and matte tights in skin colour, you cut a competent figure in every situation.
A matching blazer rounds off the business outfit for women outside the office and is ideal for transition and wintertime.
If things are generally a bit more casual at the office, you can also combine your business skirt with short sleeve or more playful blouses and tunics.
Subtle ruffles or ties in the neckline loosen up clean-cut business skirts and form a harmonious contrast.
In winter, pencil skirts go well with classic turtlenecks and elegant ankle boots.
Patterns and colours in a business outfit
A business skirt does not have to be black or plain – even classic patterns and colours can be found in your outfits around office skirts. Diamond patterns, checks, prints or pinstripes are particularly stylish.
In addition to earth and grey tones, muted and rich colours also look elegant in a business outfit, which you can also pick up on in accessories or a blazer.
Solid coloured tops and reserved shoes give a patterned women's skirt enough space to work.
The pencil skirt as a casual business look
You can also combine office skirts casually in your free time or for the next after work party. If the dress code is not seen so closely, business-style skirts go wonderfully with a summer tank top and embellished sandals or with a stylish long cardigan and high boots.
A snug cardigan also gives the smart casual business look a cosy touch and, in combination with colour-coordinated wool tights, keeps you warm.
Accessories can also stand out in a casual business outfit. In addition to striking front zippers, belts or button strips on the skirt itself, you can create a distinctive and personal style with large bags or statement chains. With a rocker biker jacket or a wide oversize pullover, on the other hand, you can create exciting contrasts.
