Shopping for workwear has never been easy, but finding the perfect pencil skirt no longer feels like a chore thanks to the Suite Skirt. The skirt stays put on your waist and sits just above your knees - appropriate both for entering the office and a night out after work.

Dress the suite skirt down in a solid or graphic tee paired with fresh kicks. We also love tucking the shirt in or in a knot to the side for an effortless, casual look.

Evening Outings

Throw on an oversized knit with booties or open-toed heeled sandals. We also love to cinch the sweater by adding a belt around our waist for some subtle definition and shape.

We love the versatile Suite Skirt for its:

FIT: neither too loose nor too tight, this pencil skirt makes for seamless movement with the garment’s relaxed fit and ease. 

FEEL: the stretchy fabric is soft and weightless to the touch. You’ll never want to take off the Suite Skirt for how it makes you feel free and empowered from 9 to 5. 

FASHION: whether at your desk or out with friends, the Suite Skirt belongs everywhere - not just at the office.
