After a hectic weekend we’re back at work!  This week our stylist better halves are craving a classic look to get us through this week of unscheduled meetings and unexpected dinners. Is that  how you envisage your week too?

Considering we face similar dilemmas everyday, we’ve decided to jazz up our weekday style with our favourite classic picks, a pencil skirt and a jacket ensemble!

Black and white is a classic combination that works every time.  To build up the OOMPH we’ve gone in the vintage lace and delicate laser cutwork direction for fabrics. Adding a colour pop to black & white with RED definitely lifted our spirits. The only way to accessorize these strong colours is by going neutral with tan and of course black and white.

There are 2 things to keep in mind while choosing the pencil skirt for work wear- ‘the long and short’ of it!

If you like wearing the occasional skirt to work, remember that LENGTH is a huge deciding factor

Lengths that work:  Below Mid-Thigh length, Knee length and Midi 
Lengths that don’t: Mini, Mid-Thigh and Maxi

We love pencil skirts because they have an instant glam, smart and no-nonsense-sex appeal. Whether in a board meeting, office luncheon or evening cocktails, this skirt is perfectly able to hold it’s own everywhere. Deciding to team this up with a red blazer was absolutely intentional. After all, red is power,  n’est-ce pas?

Why not try something bold and stylish this week?
