Trend Alert: Pencil Skirts

This season, pencil skirts have moved beyond the confines of offices and workplaces and made their way into more casual looks. Teaming a formal or dressy pencil skirt with a casual top or sweatshirt is the best way to work this trend. Think of this look as the reverse of teaming your favourite jeans with a structured jacket or a dressy top.  With this look, the skirt takes centre stage while the other elements in the ensemble are subdued or casual in comparison. Here are two of our favourite ways to wear this trend.

Wear a pencil skirt with a boyfriend shirt


Team a plain pencil skirt with a boyfriend shirt

Try teaming a classic black pencil skirt with a boyfriend shirt or a cotton checked shirt for a look that’s relaxed yet chic. The look works well for a Friday at work or a night out on town with your friends. For an even more relaxed look swap the shirt for a sweatshirt. Alternatively, if you want to up the ante on chic, wear a skirt with leather trim or a satin skirt.

Wear a lace pencil skirt with a casul t-shirt



Wear a lace or printed pencil skirt with a casual t-shirt

For this relaxed look, wear a printed or lace pencil skirt with a casual t-shirt or tank top. Wear gladiator sandals or flat ballerinas- we’ve picked a pair with a little sparkle, but you could wear a more toned-down pair, if that’s more your style. Throw in a messenger bag, a cute satchel or a tote, to complete the look.
