9-5 Glam Series 1 - What Skirt to Wear to the Office

Posted on 09 October 2017

Whether you work in a creative space, call-centre cubicle or 1970's public sector office, you can be the star of glam work wear. Do you frequently open your wardrobe and wonder what to wear to the office today? We thought we'd run a series for 9-5 Glam and show you what works best, in each category for your body shape. The first in our series is on office skirts. Do you know what works for your body shape? If you missed our previous blog, "What Should I Wear for My Body Shape?" take a look here. 

We, here at YourMO, we've got your covered! Check out our what to wear to the office for my body shape guide below:

Classic Pencil Skirt

Pencil skirts are best suited to hourglass shapes, but if you are a more athletic shape you can use this to add or accentuate curves and a waistline, particularly if you team with a contrast flattering top (tucked in) and a waist cinching belt. Pencil skirts for work are uber stylish and there's a huge variety to choose from including classic black pencil skirts or patterned pencil skirts.

A-Line Skirts

A-line skirts are great to help balance out pear shape body shapes. With a pear shape, the hips are the widest part of your body. An A-line skirts for pear shaped bodies accentuates the smallest part of your waist and flares out over your hips to balance out the bottom with the top half of your body.

Short Flouncy Skirts

Shorter length skirts (above knee skirts or mid-thigh skirts) with some volume (pleated skirts, frilled skirts) work really well on apple shaped curves. The waistband will accentuate the smallest part of your waist and the frills or pleats will flare out over the stomach, masking your mid-section. Finally, the shorter length hemline will help to show off your slender legs.
