How to Wear a Pencil Skirt
Christian Dior first introduced the pencil skirt in the 1940’s and it became in instant classic. The slimming and ultra figure flattering skirt should be a staple in every woman’s wardrobe.
DO pair it back to a slim fitting top or sweater. Slim cut tops should be tucked in for a sleek effect. Sweaters can be worn out and should be on the longer side and accessorized with a skinny belt.
DO wear some type of a heel (try a small kitten heel if you aren’t a heel girl!) to accentuate the lines of the skirt. If you opt for a flat, try a nude one. DO keep the hemline to the knee or just above the knee. DO have a basic black skirt in your wardrobe as well as one in a bright hue – red anyone?
DON’T wear an oversized or flowy top with your pencil skirt. A full top detracts from the slimming effect and defeats the overall purpose of the skirt.
DON’T wear a long or bulky jacket. When pairing a jacket back to a pencil skirt, keep it cropped and slim.
DON’T go too short with the hemline – save the shorter hemlines for mini and skater skirts. The ideal and most flattering length for a pencil skirt falls right below the knee.
