Black Pencil skirt – Why you need one

This year’s black pencil skirt

The French capsule wardrobe has been in the planning stage for a while now.  There were some items which have been left out because they are not currently a priority for Workings to make, for example a trench coat, or a black leather jacket.  We wanted to limit the number of items, but  the pencil skirt is an obvious choice to include and definitely makes the top seven items which we want to include.  It is so simple, sexy and chic while at the same time extremely sophisticate and grown up.

Our black, on the knee, pencil skirt is cut in a spotted jersey fabric.

It’s machine washable, and easy to wear.

It has a hand finished hem and patch pocket detail.

The black pencil skirt should be a perennial item in your wardrobe.  If not black, then a classic weave like houndstooth, or a plain camel colour or a pencil skirt in a neutral colour such as bronze silk, would be great.  The pencil skirt’s superpower is its ability to blend seamlessly into many different outfit combinations.  Like the great friend who you can invite anywhere and sit next to anyone, the black pencil skirt is a true, reliable piece of clothing friend.

How our black pencil skirt will suit you

Our pencil skirt is made in versatile black jersey with a stretch making it super-easy to wear and super-smart to wear.  Our pencil skirt is cut to the knee, making it easy to wear and to walk in.  It’s form-fitting, but you’re going to be able to run in it.  It has small details that give it a unique look a hand-finished hem and patch pockets.  In short, it’s a simple garment, beautifully made.

The black pencil skirt is designed to fit perfectly into your work wardrobe whether you are working from home or chairing boardroom meetings.  The flexibility and versatility of our black pencil skirt will keep you company and not let you down.

Is our black pencil skirt for you?

The Working Frocks black pencil skirt is generously cut and guaranteed to fit most standard sizes.  It suits nearly all female body shapes, even pear shapes, who traditionally need a fluted a-line silhouette.  The reason it suits so many body shapes is its proportions.  From the total length of the skirt, to the width of the hem, to the waist size, all measurements are designed to make the black pencil skirt be as flattering as possible on your own body shape.

The black pencil skirt can be worn with a black jacket and black lace top and will take you out for a smart lunch.  Wear it with a casual tee shirt, boots and a gilet for a casual afternoon look.  Pair it with our simple white top for an effortlessly chic, soignée look that can take you from a brasserie lunch with girlfriends, to an afternoon business meeting and onto drinks and dinner à deux.

The black pencil skirt crosses all boundaries – from 18 to 80, women are going to look great in this skirt.  Part-time working mothers, or women who’s careers are in full flow and they are giving every moment of their day are both going to find this a welcome addition to their wardrobe.
