Pencil skirts are awesome formal wear pieces. They're versatile, letting you dress them up or down. You can wear them with almost all your tops- t- shirts, flowy blouses, tank tops, button-downs, or layer with a jacket/ blazer. They look good on most body types, and are widely available.
They're definitely a staple in my wardrobe, and I have quite a few of them in different colors. Here are 6 different looks I've done with pencil skirts on the blog.
I wore my black pencil skirt with a short-sleeved red blouse, and a mint blazer on top. Simple silver jewelry and black pumps completed this look.
In this look I wore a long-sleeved olive green top with a white pencil skirt. I added a red belt for a pop of color and matched red pumps and an envelope clutch to it. I wore a statement necklace in white to set off the skirt.
I kept it simple here by pairing a baby pink blouse with a black skirt. A statement watch and a bejeweled cuff keep the look smart. I chose blue pumps for another burst of color, and a statement bag keeps the look professional.
In this look I went for blue on blue, choosing to wear a full-sleeved satin blouse in royal blue with this royal blue skirt. I toned down the color with a black clutch and black heels.
I tucked a pink t-shirt into a white skirt in this outfit, and finished with royal blue pumps. I acessorized with a long colorful bead necklace and a gold cuff. A neutral statement bag completed this semi-formal look.
Button-downs go great with pencil skirts and here I wore a navy blue silk button-down with my white skirt. I wore a thin black belt on top of the skirt to add interest. I accessorized with golden jewelry, wearing a golden necklace inside the collar of the shirt, and a golden bracelet, ring and leather watch. I finished the look with beige heels with gold embellishments, and a neutral bag.
Hopefully I've inspired you to try out different pencil skirt outfits for the office. They're even great for dinners and events. Get a few of them in basic colors, so you can mix and match them with different tops and create lots of looks.
Until next time,
