Workweek Chic: A Pencil Skirt and a Leather Jacket

Leave a comment

Fresh from Natasha at FreeUrCloset, here’s a wonderfully simple/sexy upgrade to a classic pencil skirt!

Hello my fab fellow fashionistas! Here is a little office chic attire to get your work week started.

My black BCBG pencil skirt was my favorite go-to piece when I used to work a 9-to-5 job. Even now, when I attend business events and conferences, I rely on my good ‘ole black skirt and mix it up by wearing it with patterned blouses, blazers and leather jackets.

For my upcoming event, I decided to give my skirt a little do-it-yourself “sexy back”  by adding a visible gold zipper and a slit:

I paired my new and improved skirt with a floral top and a textured leather jacket in order to add some funkiness to the outfit (because, sometimes, you just need to bring the sexy to your work clothes ;)):
