The skirt to end them all

The pencil skirt is a timeless classic, so every wardrobe needs one to stay ahead of the curve. This style has popped up time and again since it first arrived in the 1950s, and this season is no different. Intricate detailing, big prints and design flourishes are taking the pencil skirt to new lengths.

Suits you

Make an impression on your first day in a really well-cut pencil skirt suit, an icon of our smart yet chic women’s workwear collection. The tailored jacket and pencil skirt are great foundations for an office look – so you’ll be cool, calm and collected when the time comes. Couple with a bright shirt for colour-blocking impact, and take to the boardroom feeling 10-feet tall.

Dress it down

While the pencil skirt has its roots in business, there’s no reason why you can’t rock it in a casual setting. We love to pare them down with a pair of boots and a chunky sweater for a more relaxed take on an office staple. And in a jersey fabric, it’s cute combined with a plain white tee and flats.

Check yourself

Add a little pizazz to your pencil skirt collection with a check print. Our latest designs make the most of the eternally chic ponte wool, finished in miniature check to create a much softer silhouette. Not into finer prints? No problem. Go big or go home with our oversized check styles. They pack a punch in sizes 8 to 20, and perfectly complement the classic style of our trademark pencil skirts.

Cotton on to it

Jersey cotton creates a gentler version of the structured pencil skirt, and is key for day-to-night outfits in this style. They’re a cheap yet comfy way to work the office look, while looking just as at home in a low-key bar with trainers thrown on. Easy wear and easy care? We’re stocking up too!
