Sleek, chic and easy to wear, knee-length skirts sit perfectly on the smart-casual divide. Unlike a maxi skirt which tends to either be very summery or very formal, a knee-length skirt falls right in the middle, making it ultra-wearable in lots of different wardrobe dilemmas. They’re a must-have in a work repertoire, but they can also work really well for a more dressed-down day. At navabi, our knee-length skirts come in every fabric you can think of: denim, leather, jersey, taffeta, and we’ll definitely have the right shape of skirt to fit your body and your wardrobe, whether that’s pencil, Aline, cocoon, bell or flared. They provide a great canvas to get creative with tops, jackets, footwear and accessories, and can be dressed up or down as your heart desires.
Knee-length skirts for work
A demure knee-length skirt is perfect for the office. It’s refined without being too stuffy, and you can choose a style that makes the most of your figure and makes you feel like you. For everyday workwear, we like pairing a knee-length skirt with a crisp button-down shirt or a fine-knit sweater and a skinny belt. You can either wear this ensemble with a shorter jacket that hits the waistband of the skirt, or a cool longer jacket like a trench or duster that harmonises with the length of the skirt itself. Our real favourite is tucking a pussy-bow blouse into a pencil skirt made of heavy, stretchy material that gives you the ultimate hourglass shape.
The casual look
These skirts are also perfect for more relaxed dressing. Take your dark-coloured workwear-ready skirt, for example: swap out the long-sleeved work shirt for a breton top and you have a great weekend outfit. A pencil skirt works really well with a leather jacket for a bold, vampy look, or pair an A-line style with a cosy pea coat. We love to wear knee-length skirts with ballet pumps and bare legs but when it’s feeling chilly outside, they look just as great with a pair of knee-high boots that stop just below the hem of the skirt.

Knee-length skirts for your shape
We don’t like being prescriptive about fashion, but if you feel like you need a hand, at navabi we like to give you all the guidance you need to make the most of your shape when you’re shopping for a new piece. When it comes to knee-length skirts, you can filter by five body types to make sure you get a skirt that makes you and your body feel great. And if you’re not sure what shape you are, we can help you with that too. So whether you want pleats or pockets, tulip or pencil shape, patchwork or pleather, you can be sure we’ve got something that works for you.
