Pencil skirts have made the transition from summer to winter, with everyone from Kim Kardashian and Miley Cyrus to Miranda Kerr rocking the super-tight skirts in recent weeks.
If you want to get a few more months’ wear out of your pencil skirts, here are our favourite ways of styling them.
Pencil skirts take their inspiration from the feminine silhouettes of the 1950s, but the modern day version packs an exciting punch with the addition of graphic prints to bring this figure hugging form to life.
Why not make a statement with this season’s hottest tartan and floral prints? Not only are prints a great way to add interest, they bring a welcome splash of colour to dreary winter wardrobes.
Top of the crops
For a night out on the town we like to pair our pencil skirts with a crop top for a look that is bang on trend. High-waisted skirts are particularly good for this. It’s sometimes nice to leave a couple of inches between the skirt and top to help define the form too.
A loose cropped t-shirt can also work well with a pencil skirt. Pair with some high-heeled ankle boots like this pair from Poste Mistress and a chunky chain necklace for a more edgy look.
Dress down with a slouchy jumper
The statement sweaters which are huge this autumn/winter are perfect paired with a pencil skirt for a casual, relaxed look.
Team with some woolly tights, these buckle detail black boots and an oversized scarf.
Embrace the midi
Pencil skirts come in all different lengths, but this autumn/winter, it’s definitely all about the midi. We love the Burberry Lace detailed version for SS14, perfection in a pencil which can be cosied up for these colder months.
