Simple tips on wearing a pencil skirt
This is the most frequent function of a pencil skirt for most ladies but there are tricks for making the most of a pencil skirt as work wear.
For work, high-waisted styles that do not hug the body too tightly are the best fit.
Neutral colours like black, navy or tan are most suited for the work environment. They also come with the benefit that they can be worn with different outfits for different looks.
Some of the easiest and best pairings for a pencil skirt in a work outfit include a tucked-in shirt or blouse, an un-buttoned blazer or cropped blazer with a camisole. Classic pumps are easy shoes to pick to complete your work outfit with a pencil skirt.
If you’re wearing a pencil skirt for a formal or evening event, then you’ll need to start by choosing the right fabric. Something with a striking colour or something with a metallic finish will be a trendy way to blend your pencil skirt as evening wear.
Pair a high-waisted skirt with a sleeveless blouse or a fitted lace blouse tucked in; something with a high neck would work well. A pair of high heels will finish the look perfectly.
For jewellery you could wear cocktail jewellery or wear a high neck blouse with jewelled collar.
For the weekends, you can dress down your pencil skirt with knitted tops or tucked in a baggy top allow the details of your waist to show.
For a preppy look, you could pair your pencil skirt with a denim shirt or striped blouse or shirt.
For a casual look, you’ll want a skirt that goes no further than your knees; you can do something a bit shorter too. Also you need to look for skirts in more breathable fabrics or something in denim to give that casual air; you don’t want something too tight or rigid.
For shoes, sneakers, flat summer sandals or any other slipper style should do.
