    At R29 headquarters, we tend to get spoiled with a lax dress code that affords us the freedom of mixing our weekend wares with our business-cas lineup. We get that this isn't the norm everywhere, but that doesn't mean you can't have just as much fun reinventing your office standbys for after hours and weekend activities, too. One such piece that delivers on both fronts is Kit and Ace's Abington pencil skirt, a tailored juniper-hued piece that has the transformative power to take you from leading a Monday morning board meeting to leading a cultured excursion upstate. In fact, once separated from its usual bedfellows of button-ups and blazers, the skirt can ease its way into nearly any look.

    Feeling a little skeptical? Check out five ensembles ahead that remix the 9-to-5 staple and open up endless possibilities to #FreeTheWorkWear.

    The Cultured Day-Trip
    Whether you're in search of a fresh perspective or just need to clear your head, weekend day trips have a way of helping you achieve both. Sneakers are crucial since you'll be on your feet adventuring — they also dress down the fitted pencil skirt. Keep it casual with a graphic tee and a bright bomber jacket, plus pack a fun camo backpack with anything you might need for the journey, like a book or a nice camera

    The Weekend Ritual
    A weekend never goes by without touching base with your squad, and this comfy chic look is perfect for morning-after coffee and croissants when everyone spills on their recent shenanigans. Introduce a splash of color with a pale pink turtleneck and throw on a printed overcoat for warmth. Ankle-strap booties and subtle earrings up the detail game on an otherwise simple look.

    The Almost Cocktail Party
    Fancy birthday parties and upscale dinners call for a certain level of posh that's a bit higher than your average night-out getup. Dress your skirt up with other jewel tones, like this embellished burgundy peplum blouse. Strappy, pointed toe heels and a funnel neck coat bring a rich, sophisticated element to the look.

    The "It's Official" Date
    You finally had the DTR (define-the-relationship) chat and things have been peachy ever since. Now that you're both feeling the comfort of stability, feel free to let your date-night look reflect the same: something that's true to your style and always cozy. Mix up laid-back pieces with items that show your personality, like an oversized mustard sweater and playful leopard booties.

    The Second Wind Call
    You thought you were in for the night when your best friend called you and insisted on taking you out. This throw-on-and-go outfit should always be on the back burner for nights like these. A striped sweater goes well with just about anything. Spice it up with a printed sweatshirt, edgy leather jacket, and simple pencil skirt. Slip on some tights and platform loafers and you're all set for any adventure that awaits.
