SHARPEN YOUR PENCIL SKIRT SKILLS
There's nothing that straddles the style line between sophisticated and sexy more than a pencil skirt. Wear a classic black version with a chambray shirt and blazer for work. Pair a striped pencil skirt with a black-and-white polka-dot blouse to mix prints up in a fashion-forward way. Or go weekend casual with a jersey version of this streamlined silhouette in a bold color and bring in a neutral tank on top. The styling options never end. Here's a shopping list to get you thinking about refreshing (or simply starting) your current pencil skirt situation. Time to sharpen those pencil skirt skills:
Look 1, Kate Hudson: This is a supersimple way to pull off a casual yet polished pencil skirt look. You could leave the pop-color pump or try a strappy flat to get even more comfortable. A graphic tee works perfectly for a lunch date.
Look 2, Karolina Kurkova: This is a look you can take to a dinner or easily update for the office with the addition of a classic black (or pop the bag with a bold blue) tote and blazer. Look 3, Olivia Palermo: Mixing prints is another option when it comes to styling your pencil skirts. An easy trick is to keep the colors aligned even when the prints are different. That pump, with a hint of color, is perfection. Take this inspiration and get to shopping!
