Classic pieces are always a must-have in any girl’s wardrobe, they can instantly help you out in one of those dramatic moments when you just “don’t have anything to wear”. One of such pieces is the pencil skirt; hugely popular this winter and still wearable next spring.
Burberry Prorsum, Gucci and Carolina Herrera presented exquisite pencil skirts on their fall runway shows, and how did they styled it?... in a casual way; pairing the once considered “executive woman” garment with t-shirts and everyday chunky knit sweaters making it ultra urban but chic.
And whenever you have a special night, you can always count on the pencil skirt for a glam look; choose a leather one or a printed one and pair it with solid colored tops and shoes; the peplum pencil skirts are also an excellent alternative for fancy dinners.
Of course, let’s not forget this is also the perfect skirt for work; it’s long and sophisticated, just make sure it is not too tight and wear it with button down blouses or blazers to make the “suit” look complete.
The pencil skirt outfit will always look better with platforms or high heels, but that does not mean you cannot wear flats, just remember it could make you look shorter so that’s almost a “no-no” to petite figures. And boots are also a good choice as long as they hit the knee, avoid ankle boots with pencil skirts at all costs.
Who can wear them?
All body types are welcome to wear this style of skirt except for curvy figures that are bigger on the hips and bottom area; why?, because the tight shape of the skirt on top will only accentuate those body parts and make them look wider. Never the less, curvy girls will totally rock “A” line skirts.
