Universally accepted as one of the staple items in a workplace wardrobe, the pencil skirt is very versatile for many different occasions. Common complaints regarding the average pencil skirt comes down to two things:the fit is uncomfortable, and the fabrics are scratchy. Enter: The Dressy Sweatskirt. Made from ultra-soft and stretchy MicroModal, the Dressy Sweatskirt is your new go-to pencil skirt. The Dressy Sweatskirt is inspired by the comfort of our Dressy Sweatpant, but a skirt, featuring the same comfortable waistband and even the zippered pouch.
As an introduction to the Dressy Sweatskirt, we challenged ourselves to really put the versatility of this product to the test. Here is how we would style the Dressy Sweatskirt for 7 days, in 7 ways.
An unexpected pairing with a slightly more adventurous and trendy look. Can range from more to less casual depending on the sweater you’ve chosen. Pair with sneakers or booties depending on the level of casual that you’re going for. Great for running errands or meeting up with friends.
The coziest, yet dressy, outfit for when the weather is a bit chillier. Pair with a pair of black tights if you need to make the outfit a bit warmer. Tucking the sweater slightly into the skirt makes sure the waistline doesn’t get lost in the bulkiness of the knit material.
The look of a work dress, but more versatility. This monochromatic look is very sophisticated and simple, and easy to dress up with statement jewelry, but still looks great on it’s own.
Great for impressing all the right people at business meetings. Pair with a solid, patterned, or monochromatic blazer depending on your personal style. Low heels or loafers keep the outfit styled for business professional.
A great combo for when you want a simple outfit that makes a statement. The simple formula of funky blouse with classic skirt is a great go-to, and looks very put together with minimal planning.
The simplest of outfits still looks super put together. Pair a simple sleeveless blouse, or even a t-shirt with the Dressy Sweatskirt is the ultimate work uniform. Ballet flats are the perfect, versatile, and practical shoe!
The perfect look if you’re feeling like shaking up the classic “graphic t-shirt + jeans” combo. Almost the same formula, but with a pencil skirt instead. Elevates the look for casual outings where you’d like to have a more styled outfit.
