Poor slits. Often preceded with “up-to-there,” “sky-high,” or “ultra-revealing,” the misunderstood style is usually typecast as a sexy-outfit-only look. But, the split skirt has so much more potential than simply something flashy to wear on a night out. It can even play a major role in work wardrobes.
Before you double-check with human resources, let us explain. Not every cut is 15-inches high. Plenty of office-friendly pencil skirts on the market right now feature modest slits that don’t fall into pelvic territory (not that there’s anything wrong with that). Ahead, we gathered plaid, pinstripe, and leather pencils ready to take center stage in your workplace rotation. Click on to shop ‘em — lickety-split.
