First, BetaBrand brought us yoga pants disguised as works pants. Now, they’ve created an incredibly comfortable pencil skirt: the Work-It Pencil Skirt. I’ve been searching for a stretchy pencil skirt for a few years, since I lucked out and found one at Club Monaco back in 2010. That one needs to retire, and was time to find a replacement. My Google searches for comfortable pencil skirts brought up tight, slinky skirts that were only nightclub appropriate. I needed a super comfortable pencil skirt with thick material that has some give when I sit or drink too many sparkling waters.
I’d tried everything, even buying Theory skirts two sizes too big and tailoring them to fit, with a little room in the right places. Other skirts were either stiff and unforgiving, or way too revealing. I needed the perfect in-between; a thick, stretchy material that would give at the waist and hips but provide enough coverage in a work environment. Leave it to BetaBrand, the online clothing retailer that creates functional, stylish pieces designed by everyone from Project Runway winners to everyday people, to create the perfect pencil skirt.
The Work-It Skirt is by far the most comfortable pencil skirt that I have ever owned, made from supportive, stretchy rayon and spandex blend material. The skirt pulls on and molds to fit your body, flattering your shape whether you’re straight or curvy. Check out other body types wearing this pencil skirt
(including curvy and straight) here. A kick pleat in the back makes it easy to move in, and a zipper pocket in the waistband hides security passes or credit cards – no need to bring your purse!
I can’t wait to work with BetaBrand to try more of their killer, comfy designs.
