The pencil skirt is a timeless piece that every woman should own, but while it is timeless, it can be one of the most unexciting pieces to style. When worn right, the pencil skirt can be one of the sexiest pieces around (two words: Joan Holloway), and a truly versatile piece that can make casual outfits more fancy, and fancy outfits more imaginative. Here are Mai tips on how to amp up your pencil skirt this season.
- To try out color blocking in a way, pair a bright skirt under a neutral-toned sweater or blouse, and keep everything in place with a belt in a different bright hue. It's a way to define your waist without getting too color-happy.
- For those evening events where the dress code is somewhere between a cocktail dress and a pair of jeans, opt for a shimmery pencil skirt and a neutral-colored oversized shirt to keep the disco-ball factor dialed down. Or, dress your pencil skirt up with other jewel tones, like a peplum blouse, strappy pointed toe heels, and a funnel neck coat bring a rich and sophisticated element to the look.
