The most versatile of the skirt family, the pencil can be serious at work or flirty in the evening. Available in a myriad of textures, patterns and colors, the pencil skirt is a functional wardrobe essential.
Work: Pair your pencil skirt with a dress shirt, button-up, silk blouse or plain/printed cardigan and cami.
Evening: Dress-up your pencil skirt with a simple tank or cami, killer shoes and accessories.
Weekend: Depending on the material and texture of your pencil skirt, try adding some Chuck Taylors or sandals, a plain tee and jean jacket.
A pencil skirt can be very figure-flattering. For additional slimming properties – look for skirts with color-blocking panels on the sides. These panels – especially when black – whittle the curves significantly.
