Figuring out what to wear for work shouldn’t be stressful. Your 9-to-5 attire should be comfy and versatile in case a happy hour or an impromptu date pops up. As I have gotten older, I don’t have a strict work or play attire anymore. I accessorize up or down within my capsule wardrobe. Whether you have a big meeting or date night, I’m sharing some solid skirt options for all occasions.

I love the simplicity of investing in classics for solid black and white options. For a summer look, I suggest light pieces like this pleated skirt from ASOS. For those chilly summer nights or to edge up my look, I paired my skirt with a vegan leather jacket from Blank NYC and grey Jimmy Choo pumps. With a fresh cut lob, I’m ready to strut into my work week.

If you want to look pulled-together yet still feel comfortable, you should opt for a skirt that is flowy like this pleated option. It lets you sit and spread out without feeling like you’re trapped in a tube. Letting your legs breath is a tiny luxury you can enjoy during those hot summer months. To accent your figure, try a pencil or waist bag skirt that you can dress up with a collared blouse or down with a rocker t-shirt. (Hello, Rolling Stones!)
