As we approach the three-month mark under lockdown, one thing is clear; people who are working from home fall into two different categories. There are those who throw on whatever is clean and presentable for their WFH calls, be it a crease-free (ish) shirt for a formal touch or a floral blouse. And then there's the second category who take the phrase “all dressed up with nowhere to go” very seriously. If you belong to the latter, breaking up the day with a costume change or two is a foolproof way to lift your mood. The fact that your outings are restricted to your back garden or your grocery store is no reason to ignore the pull of a statement skirt that would do much more to pep up a your blouse than a pair of track pants or jeans. After all, the humid weather calls for short hemlines and flowy fabrics. Scroll down to take a look at some of our favourite picks available online right now.
Ted Baker’s neon green pencil skirt is an instant mood-booster; style a white crop top for a cool girl vibe. If your taste is inclined towards minimal ensembles, focus your attention to The Summer House’s ivory sustainable skirt instead. Looking for something off-beat? 431_88's purple tie-up skirt with an asymmetric hemline if the one for you—style it with a crisp white shirt or simply throw on a black crop top. Zara’s draped mini floral skirt is the ideal dress to throw on when temperatures start to rise, while the polka dotted midi number from Nicobar is just right for retro lovers. If you’re looking for an alternative to florals, you can consider getting your hands on Bhaane’s scarf draped skirt showcasing a front slit. If you are a minimalist at heart and love collecting subtle sneakers, then you can rely on Kanika Goyal’s asymmetrical skirt that comes with romantic pleats and lace detailing will help you make a subtle statement.
