Pencil Skirt Styling Tips

Pencil Skirt Style

The pencil skirt has had a serious revival in my closet this season.

My latest obsession is the J. Crew No. 2 – it comes in seven colors and I’ve justified purchasing two (okay, three) because of the sale price.

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.
