The pencil skirt has had a serious revival in my closet this season.
At any rate, I’ve been reaching for them for both work and weekend styling. Sure, that’s partially because I’m living out of a suitcase, but really, it’s because of my recent (re)discovery of the versatility of this long-and-lean cut. For the office, a pencil skirt looks as great with a blouse and pumps. On the weekends, I wear it layered with tights, moto boots and a chambray top.
I’m going through that awkward phase of transitioning my wardrobe from winter to spring, which is how this ensemble was born.
As a self-proclaimed party starter, I knew an end-of-the-day happy hour was in order, so I started with foundational brights (shoes and skirt) from the get-go and created a little contrast by mixing a tough-and-tailored jacket or pair of cute boot(ie)s.
