Pencil skirt outfits are perfect for every occasion
By Carla Snuggs
A great pencil skirts is classic and chic. Whether it be during the cooler months or warm summer months, ifs hard to go wrong with a slim fitting pencil skirt. Every woman should own at least once in a standard black color, however not all are created equal. You must consider a variety of things, from quality of fabric to the shape of your body.
A pencil skirt is a versatile and flexible and should be a staple of your wardrobe. It can be easily converted from a piece you wear to the office to a skirt that can be worn for a night out on the town. Furthermore, a pencil skirt can be paired successfully with almost any type of top.
Your first step to looking good in pencil skirt outfits is to choose the correct one for your body type. Fit and length are the two most important factors to consider when choosing a skirt as well as choosing a body-flattering design and style. Light colors and interesting skirt accents will highlight the derriere and hips. A pencil skirt with detailing at the bottom or the hem will draw the eye away from curves and you appear leaner. If you are attempting to balance your top half with your bottom half, you may want to pair the skirt with a voluminous top or eye catching earrings or necklace.
The next decision that you must make when pairing a blouse with a skirt is whether to wear the blouse tucked in or untucked. If the pencil skirt you are wearing has a high waist or a thick waistband, then the shirt should be worn tucked in to compliment the look. Furthermore, tucking in a blouse will make your look appear more sophisticated, elongate your legs, and create a trimmer waistline. However, if tucking in the blouse shortens your torso, then you should wear your blouse untucked.
Another popular look for pencil skirts this season is to pair them with a belt. This lends structure to an outfit and it provides an interesting eye-catching detail. If you wish to pair a belt with your skirt, opt for a skinny belt rather than a wide belt. A woman should keep in mind that the lower the belt is placed, the shorter your legs will look. So, be careful to place the belt in such a manner that it does not chop your waist in half.
How To Look Hot In A Pencil Skirt
No doubt, of the most popular styles of skirts is a pencil skirt because they are truly flattering on most body types. They have been worn by women of all ages and have seen the many faces of fashion evolution. When teamed up with minimal accessories, they can be transformed into a versatile look ranging from conservative to chic and elegant. They can be worn with most shoes and are perfect for any party or an office outfit.
A pencil skirt usually flatters your legs no matter your body shape or size. Women with larger frames can opt for these skirts, as they slender down the frame from the waist by making the hip area appear a bit more narrow. They also accentuate the hips and bring out the femininity of a woman. There are blocks, plaids and printed designs that can be teamed with a chic top for a casual evening stroll. They are the perfect casual piece when paired with a trendy jacket and wedge boots.
You may accessorize your pencil skirt further with an overcoat and lend that elegant charm. Another alternative is to pair pencil skirts with biker jackets and leather pumps for an edgy look.
