Have you tried teaming pencil skirts with booties for work? This tandem is commonly done in fall and winter, although many girls in warmer countries are also applying it to their work styles. And yet to some working girls, they find it challenging to do. They worry if it´s appropriate for the office or if it looks good on them.
My tip? Go for tailored ankle or calf-length boots with pointed toe style and fitted top. Stay away from round toes with wide opening, for these boots won´t do good for your height or to your professional image.
That said, here are four outfits I´ve created for you featuring pencil skirts and boots.
1. black pencil skirt outfit for work
Add a little glamor to your classic black pencil skirt with a perforated-stripe style as seen here on a Nanette Lepore skirt. Team it with a white A-line long sleeve blouse worn tucked in. The loose silhouette of your top will balance the sleekness of your black suede boots. Break your monochrome with a plaid multi print satchel bag.
2. pink pencil skirt outfit for work
It´s not often that I find a real lovely flamingo pencil skirt. That´s why I consider myself lucky to have dug up this knit number, still from Nanette Lepore.
Now when it comes to wear pink, or any other shades of pink, I lean towards teaming it with black especially if my aim to achieve an elegant result. So I went for a classic black bootie to go with the skirt, and added a circle print blouse in berry hue for more interest.
3. orange pencil skirt outfit for work
Orange skirt may appear a little too bold for the office, especially if it´s a bandage pencil skirt. My tip in rocking one to work is to tame down its sexiness. You don´t want to look too sexy at work. Add a muted long sleeve with delicate embellishment and sheer paneling at the hem.
Complete the look with this season´s most-coveted bootie, the tumbled leather boot with pointed toe and wraparound buckled straps at ankle from Cynthia Vincent. This look is perfect in fall or winter.
To wear the bandage pencil skirt and bootie in summer, team it with a loose silk long sleeve top. Feel free to tuck in.
4. Cranberry pencil skirt outfit for work
Wine colors are always trending in cold seasons, so take advantage of this slim pencil skirt in deep cranberry color from BCBGMAXAZRIA. You can also go matchy-matchy with the help of Michael Antonio´s Maelin bootie in cranberry.
Topped with a rose satin blouse and a Kate Spade satchel bag, you a look that´s truly elegant for the office.
So have fun and experiment mixing and matching pencil skirts with booties for your work outfits.
