Pencil skirts are a staple when it comes to office wear, because you can always count on their fitted cuts to make you look tidier and more professional. But beyond just helping you look business-ready, pencil skirts are also great for complimenting your figure. After all, who doesn’t love a skirt that elongates your legs and makes your waist look smaller and slimmer!
To help you so you don’t splash out so much to look good for the office, we collated some stylish options below $100 for you – all from printed pieces to those in eternally-classic colours. But before we dive into the selection, here are 4 tips to keep in mind to find the pencil skirt that fits perfectly to you:
A wider waistband is more flattering, because it cinches you in and creates a curvier silhouette.
Look out for a pencil skirt with front darts, as it’s likely to fit your body shape better.
A slit – whether in the back or front – is a key feature in a good pencil skirt as it helps facilitate movement.
As a general rule, opting for a below-the-knee hemline keeps your pencil skirt corporate-friendly.
