Pencil skirt – for work or on holiday
“Pencil” is a skirt, narrowed down and tight hips. Pencil skirts are sewn from a variety of materials – elastic knitwear, costume fabric, satin, lace and many other options. For the first time such a skirt style appeared in the middle of the last century, and legendary designer Christian Dior introduced it to fashion. The pencil skirt emphasizes the roundness of the hips and slim figure, making the woman incredibly elegant. For many girls, a pencil skirt is solely a business woman’s wardrobe, but current trends stubbornly demonstrate the opposite. In a tight skirt, you can walk around the city and go shopping, as well as visit restaurants, exhibitions and even parties. Let’s look at the main issue – what is the best way to combine such a skirt.
Pencil skirt with a high waist
A high pencil skirt visually lengthens the lower part of the body, so with this skirt you can safely wear ballet flats or sandals on a flat sole. Such models are not recommended for thin girls with the “inverted triangle” figure, such an outfit will emphasize the lack of mouth-watering hips and a pronounced waist. Also, do not wear a high waist pencil skirt for apple girls, so as not to focus on the protruding tummy. Owners of the X-shaped silhouette, as well as pear girls can safely wear such skirts – they successfully mask the presence of extra pounds on the waist and abdomen, working as a corset.
A skirt with a high waist in summer can be worn with a crop top, if, of course, you have a tight belly and not too white skin. A pencil skirt with pin-up pumps and a loose blouse tucked into a skirt will help create the image of a business lady. Blouses with jabot and blouses-shirts look best. A motley pencil skirt will perfectly complement the solid top. It is important that the color of the top match the ornament on the skirt, then the outfit will look like a dress. For such a set, choose sandals on a heel or high wedge, sandals-gladiators to the knee will also work, but in this case there should be an interval between the hem of the skirt and the upper strap of the sandals. The most comfortable image is a pencil skirt and a body. Tight top-body does not strive to “jump out” of the skirt and does not create excess volume in the waist and hips.
Leather pencil skirt
What can I wear with a leather pencil skirt? Such materials as genuine leather and eco-leather are popular for many years and are used in a wide variety of styles. The leather black pencil skirt, despite its elegant style, will perfectly fit into the rocker look. Combine it with a leather or denim leather jacket and ankle boots on a tractor sole. No less successfully, the same skirt will look like in an office dress, if you wear a white, beige or pink blouse and pumps. If it’s cool outside, put a raincoat or leather jacket on your way to the office – a suit jacket is not suitable here.
A harmonious casual look is a leather pencil skirt and a white alcoholic jersey, and the jersey can be worn either for release or tucked in. White fine sandals on a tractor sole or wedge sandals are perfect for shoes. Skirts made of leather in brown colors are indispensable for autumn, wear them with short cardigans under the belt, leather jackets, cloaks, tight-fitting jumpers and oversized sweaters. Leather skirts of bright colors should be carefully combined – the fewer shades will be within the image, the better. Blouses and tops made of silk, satin, guipure and chiffon are worn with leather skirts.
What to wear with a pencil skirt for special occasions and parties? If you are going to an exhibition or you are to present an important award, give preference to the classical style and wear a pencil skirt with a fitted jacket and shoes with a small heel. A less formal event, for example, a trip to a restaurant accepts a pencil skirt of expensive rich colors with a light silk blouse, stilettos, a scarf. A navy pencil skirt goes well with a white, turquoise, blue blouse. At the party you can wear a blue skirt with a top in orange shades.
A white pencil skirt looks very elegant, wear it with a black blouse or a bright top. Especially bold women of fashion can recommend a red pencil skirt in combination with a leopard top. For a restaurant, choose a skirt made of velvet, brocade or silk, for a club – from satin, guipure or even knitwear. Pencil skirt made of fine knitwear will sit like a second skin, emphasizing seductive forms. A good choice is a beige draped pencil skirt, a photo of which is confirmation. We propose to wear such a skirt with a light leopard blouse and to complement the bow with golden accessories.
Pencil skirt below the knee should be chosen most carefully. The length of the midi is very capricious, so that the hem of the skirt does not fall on the widest part of the shin, let the skirt be slightly shorter or slightly longer.
