Workwear Essentials highlights must-have pieces in every working woman’s wardrobe. We find classic pieces at a variety of price points that are easy to mix and match and create your capsule wardrobe. The perfect black skirt for work is a must-have in every women’s wardrobe.
The black skirt – no matter the silhouette, this is one of the most versatile pieces a woman can own. Black is arguably the easiest color to match with any other color, plus you can easily dress it up and down. Here are our picks for the best black skirts.
The Pencil Skirt
A classic streamlined pencil skirt never goes out of style and is a great option for a basic black skirt for work. Don’t get a pencil skirt that’s too short – instead, look for one that hits right at or slightly above the knee. A lightweight wool blend is a classic staple that, while more expensive, could easily last you ten years. But if you’re on a budget, or want something machine-washable, look for a skirt with a rayon/nylon/polyester blend.
The A-line/Flowy Skirt
Think beyond a black pencil skirt with an A-line or midi skirt too. Both are appropriate for any type of office. Midi skirts have been a trend a while, but we think they are here to stay. If the skirt is a midi or longer style, pair it with heels to elevate your look. If the skirt’s on the shorter side, pair it with flats or block heels instead. You can dress up a midi or flounce skirt with a blazer too to make it more formal.
