With what we primarily associate a pencil skirt? Surely, with a business style, because it is impossible to imagine a suit as an indispensable attribute of a business lady outfit. But as time goes on, the boundaries are erased, the scopes expanded, and we now have the opportunity to evaluate a pencil skirt as a part of other styles that go beyond the conventional understanding of this design.
In the classic version of business attire we have a simple black pencil skirt that will go with any blouse, top or sweater. But on the runway Fall-Winter 2016-2017 we have seen quite a few of these models, because their place was occupied by the truly the opposite designs – bright, patterned, leather, colored pencil skirt. All of them become a self-sufficient focus of the fashion look and require a calm, muted version of a top.
Pencil skirts with high waist are very popular today, as well as other models of skirts and pants. In this case they must be accompanied by a belt or strap that allows you to adjust the width of the waist to create a light effect of fashion negligence and casual style.
Despite the fact that the collection continues to include short skirts, the midi length remains prevalent among pencil skirts. They come down below the knee or reach mid-calf. So, now the midi length pencil skirt is not the subject of your grandmother’s wardrobe, but an attractive piece of clothing for the modern woman who is interested in current trends and tries to use them to create her irresistible style.
What to wear with a pencil skirt?
First of all, remember the immutable rule of harmony. A patterned pencil skirt needs a smooth, solid top. Victorian style blouses with puffed sleeves require a simple classic pencil skirt. If you choose the original bright pencil skirt made of leather or a model with an asymmetrical cut, pair it with a cute and cozy knitted cardigan or an elegant knitted sweater.
