3 work skirts under €30 that you will definitely wear out of the office

Work skirts don't have to be black or grey, and you don't have to pair them with shirts. These three beauties will look good in the office and at play

Joan Holloway changed the way people dress for work. Mad Men may have been set in the 1960s, but the character influenced modern women in more ways than to not taking any sh*t in the workplace. Now, our work skirts are the same skirts we wear at play.

The Mad Men wardrobe team reintroduced us to the flattering shapes of sixties style, and its legacy has remained. Women don't have to choose between that navy knee length bore-fest or the other navy knee length bore-fest. The downside is that we spend ten minutes extra in the morning deciding between your patterned pencil or your pleated midi. The possibilities are endless.

When you have so much choice, however, you can't afford to go splashing the cash. With a great wardrobe comes great financial responsibility. So, we've found three work skirts that look luxe but won't break the bank. And sure, since they're all under €30, you might as well get all three!


It's leather-look, it's that on-trend shell pink shade, it has a belt detail that is so darling, and the wrap style takes it from basic to brilliant.

Everybody sing it, "Black velvet and that little boy's smile, black velvet with that slow southern style." Velvet is huge this season, and there is no stopping you from wearing it to work. That tiny material detail elevates the chic black pencil style in a big way. Your most versatile black skirt this AW16.

This may seem like the most office-y of the three, but it is just as versatile. The pattern and colour palette are totally autumn, but the draped style makes it cool. Wear with a polo neck and courts for a classic autumnal work look, but try it with chunky boots and an oversized jumper for the weekend.


When you shop for work wear, do you choose pieces you can wear at the weekend?
