Pencil Skirt: Day-To-Night

Pencil skirts are up there with wrap dresses, trench coats, and the perfect Little Black Dress when it comes to investment pieces. They’re a Must Have regardless of whether you’re in the market for a classic black skirt or something more dramatic and eye-catching

If you’re going for a more classic & timeless look or would like to pick a piece that’s work appropriate as well, I’d go with a classic color like black, navy, or grey. You can easily go from the office to cocktails by exchanging pumps for strappy heels, adding a chic cropped jacket, and piling on the statement jewelry.

These skirts are still perfect office-wear, but they’re also bold and eye-catching. Not for the faint of heart. Dress one of these brightly colored or printed skirts down for work with a tucked in button-down or party the night away in an embellished tank & fun heels.

A leather skirt is a fun option and when styled properly can easily work for day or night. Or you can try a fun printed option to spice up a weekend look. Either way, these dramatic skirts should be the focal point of your look so keep the accessories on the minimal side to avoid overdoing it.

So tell me, what’s your pencil skirt style – Classic, Bold, or Fun?
