Hello Hello! I have been on such a skirt kick lately, especially for work.  I feel like skirts are very in this season, so maybe that has something to do with it.  I own tons of pencil skirts, like I could probably wear a different one every day for a few weeks.  I really wanted to expand my skirt collection recently to include a few in the trending materials like suede, corduroy, and leather.

My one small requirement – it had to be work appropriate.  Now, I will say I work in a more business casual environment, so I have little more wiggle room with what I wear to work.  A big factor for me in a work appropriate skirt is length.  I found lots of adorable skirts, but they all seemed to lean more on the mini side.  Great for weekends, date nights, and happy hours, not so much the office.

I was happy to see Loft come out with some great work appropriate skirts in the season’s hottest materials and prints.  I bought two so far (also picked up this faux suede one), and I have a few more on my wish list.  FYI – I wear a petite in all their skirts.


The button front detailing on this skirt provides a great decorative aspect, so it’s not just a basic a-line skirt.  The color is autumn pumpkin, and so perfect for fall!!  I loved pairing this color with navy and brown, but a black sweater and boots would work too.

My main tip on how to style a corduroy skirt – play with other materials.  I love adding in leather touches. I think corduroy mixes really well leather, knits, and cotton/jersey materials.  A tucked in knit sweater or slightly cropped and bulky knit would work with this material.  Also, play with prints too.  Stripes are a neutral for me, but florals and plaid would work really well with corduroy too.

Are you upping your skirt game this season?  Which skirt material are you looking to add to your closet this season?

    I love that you styled this corduroy skirt with a striped shirt! The pattern looks so nice paired together. Also, adding black boots to the mix definitely dressed the outfit up. I could totally see myself wearing this.
