POV: let's talk skirts

(photos via acrimony)

Fact: Pencil skirts rock. They are so chic and fun to wear to work. (I love my colorful linen ones -- so summery!) But there are some super form-fitting skirts I know I could never wear in the office. They're pretty, but not at all pencil-like! Yikes!

Honestly, guys have it so easy sometimes. We ladies have to worry about things like panty lines, stretchy fabrics, and strangely placed slits. (See above: what the heck?) While women have been crushing that corporate glass ceiling for decades now, we still have to keep our femininity in check at work. But we've come a long way since the days our moms donned boxy blazers and baggy pants to blend in a male-dominated office! Nowadays, thank goodness, we have options!

So it's okay to look cute and smart, to show some leg and individuality... Just, maybe leave those sexy skirts for nights out with friends. Do you agree?


  1. I do agree can't wear something too "corporate ho-ish" or else you can't be taken seriously. And for good reason...but damn, that pencil skirt is hot!

  2. I KNOW! but look at that panty line!


Do share!
