Although technically it is Fall, the weather still feels very summer. No matter what the season is, pencil skirts will always be in style. They are very versatile and are a must-have item for any woman working in an office. When shopping for pencil skirts I am very particular since certain cuts can make my pear-shaped figure unflattering. A good pencil skirt should have just the slightest A hem at the very end. A mermaid or fishtail pencil skirt is also beautiful, but not very flattering on some figures, so curvy, hourglass and pear-shaped ladies, beware!
I have over ten different pencil skirts in my wardrobe ranging from traditional black and gray to patterns and bright colors. Here are some of my favorite pencil skirts that I will use this season.
Animal Print Pencil Skirt:
As soon as I saw this skirt, it was love at first sight! Since it is a louder print, I pair it with a blazer at the office for a more professional look. I also wear this skirt with bright tanks and blouses for a night out.
Lace Pencil Skirt:
I also grabbed this skirt the same day and store as the animal print skirt. It was a lucky day for skirts! I usually wear this skirt to the office or other daytime events like church or brunch. The lace and teal lining make this skirt a little tricky to pair with. To get the textures right, I wear this skirt with either silk or polyester blouses.
Yellow Pencil Skirt:
Pencil skirts now come in all sorts of colors and hues which make them fun and easy to color block. In this look, I paired the yellow skirt with a gray and black printed tank and an emerald cardigan. Those colors don’t normally get styled together, but they really work in this outfit. Try styling unique color combinations and see how it turns out. You’ll be surprised at what looks fabulous!
