If you happen to like formal wear at least a bit, I believe you’ll love wearing a pencil skirt. It’s tight and reaches to your knees or slightly over them, and if you were lucky enough to buy a high waist model, you already know that it ensures your figure looks flawless. Personally, I love the fact that even though it’s business look, it doesn’t seem stern and there’s always a sexy undertone to it, because it embraces the curves and shows off everything that needs to be seen or known. It’s usually worn with a matching blazer, which makes the style very formal, so I prefer to break up the whole by playing with colour, print, or just a simple T-shirt. Today, I chose five ways for you to style or wear a pencil skirt.
With a basic T-shirt
The simplest of the combinations is perfect for when you want to bring some drama to your look; you can style your pencil skirt with a basic T-shirt, wear a pair of high heels, add a clutch, and you’re ready to go, simple as that. As far as colours are concerned, you can play around with light or dark tones, whichever you choose is ok; and even though it’s summertime, an all-black combination will look very sophisticated, and all-white is a must.
With an elegant blouse
This way, you’ll be ready for a business dinner, although I believe the combination also works as day wear, especially if you have an elegant streak and love classics. A pencil skirt almost always requires high heels in order to elongate your legs. Opt for monochromatic combinations to look taller, this is an especially welcome trick for smaller women, because it will add to your height noticeably.
With a crop top
You can either tie your top at the front or wear an actual crop top, which will reveal your tummy a bit. It’s probably needless to say, the tummy should be flat, which makes this style perfect for flawless figures and all those who have narrow hips. Crop tops are still around; we’ve seen them last year and the trend continues. They also look good with a maxi skirt.
This one is for the most daring, principally for those with a good sense of these types of combinations. Stripes with florals, dots with bold colours: keep one rule in mind‒ the colours should match. This is because playing with patterns requires a harmony in colours, meaning the colour of the upper part should double in the lower one, or vice versa. It may look complicated, but it’s not. Give it a try!
With a white top
Whether it’s a blouse, T-shirt or a shirt … off-shoulder pieces look best, because they’re so particular they ensure that the outfit looks great. Keep in mind, you can opt for a very proper look, such as a pencil skirt with a fashionable top. The allure of the pencil skirt lies in the fact that it allows for countless combinations and looks perfect on every woman. Even in the summer.
