 Skirt Suit Report

Classic, tailored skirt suits are still worn in a number of professions from banking to law, real estate to advertising. Larger cities often require more formal work attire at all levels from secretaries to executives.

While women of all sizes are an important percentage of the work force, curvy career women can find it particularly challenging to locate tailored skirt suits at any budget level. Consequently many rely on basic black which stretches further as a core basic mixed and matched with a variety of career tops and accessories -- even in fields that allow more expression of color, trends, and personal style. This has more to do with lack of choices and has led to low consumer expectations, rather than a lack of demand for more trend conscious options. This is a significant gap in the apparel market in that 60% of women in the USA wear a size 12+ with the average in the 14 - 20 range.

In many professions it is increasingly acceptable to mix tailored jackets or even cardigans with career skirt separates, but more conservative fields and professions still require matching pieces. Since many women wear different sizes on top and bottom, it is common for better quality matched suiting to be sold as separates for the best fit.  Plus-size career dresses and jacket dresses also fill part of the void and are a very popular alternative.

Even in less formal professions, skirt suits are a wise choice for job interviews and presentations.  Pant suits can be another alternative, depending on the field.

Evening, church and special occasion skirt suits have a different flavor, often with added beading and embellishments and are found in our evening wear directories.
