This long cardigan has become my staple for cold winter days. I especially like the look of a long cardigan over a shorter skirt. The layering effect is very cool.
My statement skirt is my life saver during transitional fall weather. I usually go for clean, simple and grey (notice the sweater and the boots), but when it comes to skirts, I love ones with flowers and interesting details.
With a full-time job and a kid under 4, I’m always focused on putting together a minimal workweek outfit that is also on-trend. Dressing minimally takes away a lot of the anxiety of piecing together complicated outfits. But I still make sure to look fashionable.
Your work capsule wardrobe would not be complete without a classic black skirt. Pencil or tulip or fit-and-flare, the black skirt is something that doesn’t go out of fashion and is season-less. For work, opt for skirts that are knee-length to give you a polished professional look. Knee-length skirts give you a classic, slimming and flattering silhouette.
How to make it your work capsule wardrobe staple
Like the classic white shirt, the black skirt is an essential component of a work capsule wardrobe. It looks equally good with a sweater in winter as it does with a sleeveless white shirt in summer. Pair your skirt with a pump or go for a chic look and style it with a ballet flat (the option I usually go for).
