Dress codes are hard.

Especially when you are a freelancer who has a little more leniency with the way that you dress.

This outfit is the perfect solution for a semi-professional meeting because it balances professional pieces with casual pieces. The a-line skirt is versatile enough that it can be dressed up or down. Pairing it with a sweater instead of a button down keeps if professional but not boring.

The pumps are the perfect shape and heel height to signal professionalism. You could out for a pointed toe flat for comfort.

Tucking in the sweater immediately adds a more professional feel to this look.

To tone this look down a little more, opt for tights that are close to the color of the skirt, or neutral. It is ok to have a little flair, even in a semi-professional envrionment!
