Workwear Wednesday: How to wear a lace skirt to the office

Over the summer, I’ve had an exciting job, managing a condo developer’s social media accounts. Besides visiting sites and working on social media campaigns, I’ve also had the excitement of curating a new work wardrobe. My first week, I stuck to a neutral combo of cropped dress pants and blouses, but now, I’ve been experimenting a bit more with the creative work environment’s dress code, and wanted to share a post on how to wear a lace skirt to work, a first in a series of “Workwear Wednesday posts.”

I’m wearing a giraffe print top from H&M (similar giraffe print shirt), a lace skirt from Joe Fresh, a navy Kate Spade purse, Fantomette sunglasses c/o Polette Eyewear (get 30% off with code COCONUTS), and suede peep-toe Majorca booties c/o TOMS Canada.

For tips on how to wear a lace skirt to work, first of all, I would make sure that the lace skirt has an appropriate length. You can’t pull off an office-appropriate look if your skirt is hiking up your legs, so something that hits below mid-thigh is best. Also, you want to avoid long lace skirts as well, as those can look too boho and lack polish. Look for a lace skirt with a thick lining beneath, and a solid structure so that it doesn’t ride up and stays put. Test the lace skirt out first, and make sure it’s taiilored, fittend and comfortable. I love how this skirt has the perfect length and oatmeal colour that literally goes with EVERYTHING!

My giraffe print top is an ecclectic touch. Keeping with the safari-esque structure of the lace skirt, the giraffe print is quirky and shows off my personality. I love that it covers my shoulders in frigid office AC, while also being a light poly chiffon material that is cool when I step outside for a coffee.

To accessorize, I added one of my favourite work bags, a structured leather bag that is elegant and practical. Next, a fun pair of sunglasses adds some personality!

I hope this post gave you some style tips on how to wear a lace skirt to work, the key is finding the right piece and keeping the silhouette simple. I’m excited to share another “Workwear Wednesday” post next week, so stay tuned!
