Yesterday, I suggested that you check out the Ruby Ribbon Ponte pants as a foundation for your work wardrobe. Today, I’d consider adding in a black skirt too.

I understand that many women don’t choose skirts, but they provide a polished look. Plus, I find they can be more forgiving on your figure than pants, if you give them a chance.

For a great skirt for business settings, my suggestion would be the Ruby Ribbon Peggy skirt. This is a classic knee length style with a seam that gives it a tailored look and it can be worn so many ways. The fit is flattering on most women and it’s available in a range of sizes from extra small to 3XL. (Actually, most  Ruby Ribbon clothes in this wide size range.)  Besides having a skinny band, it also has a built-in slip to smooth and control from hip to top of knee.

Pair this skirt with a blouse and you are out the door! Toss on a tank, a cardigan and a cute scarf and you have a second outfit. I can go on and on here.

If you would prefer a longer length, check out the Ruby Ribbon Midi Skirt. This skirt features an A-line silhouette that gives has nice movement when you walk. It’s going to be warmer in winter, that’s for sure, but still stylish all year around. Super cute with black boots too!

It has a faux wrap with stylish tucks at the hit and subtle front slit. This skirt also will take you from day to evening so easily, mainly with a swap into evening heels.

All three of the skirts I’ve mentioned again are all in the exclusive Ponte fabric that washes well, and will last for years.

I hope to see you tomorrow as we continue on our journey of finding the best work basics to pull together so many outfits fast.
