Sometime in the past few months, pencil skirts have wormed their way into everyday fashion. Gone are the days when midi pencil skirts are relegated to the back corner of the closet. With the new take on this demure but classy fashion item, there’s no telling when the streets will be bereft of it.
I am particularly enamored with the way fashion bloggers are rocking the midi pencil skirt trend. There’s no end to the elegance being injected in their outfits. Let me show you the looks of 5 ladies, beautiful in their own right, as they take their precious midi pencil skirts out for a spin. Let’s pick up a few styling tips on the way, shall we?
1. Who: Hallie from HallieDaily
I was initially robbed of speech the first time I saw Hallie’s ensemble. When I regained my faculties, my first thought was “wow, amazing retro get-up”. I don’t even know where to begin.
First there’s her gorgeous yellow eyelet ASOS pencil skirt. I can’t keep my eyes off of it. She paired it up with a dotted mint green top. I love the whole pastel color blocking trend going on here.
And then there’s the styling. She wore her pink Red Valentino coat over her shoulder, toted a Guess satchel bag, wore metallic cap toe yellow pumps, oversized yellow sunnies and tie on polka dot headband.
If I can pull off this kind of outfit everyday for the rest of my life, I’d be a happy girl.
2. Who: Nicole Warne from Gary Pepper Vintage
This multi-hyphenated, well-traveled fashionista/businesswoman from Australia is a force to be reckoned with in the fashion industry. She rubs shoulders with Alexa Chung and has been dressed by designer powerhouse Dolce & Gabbana.
In her most recent look, she wore a spring-esque high waisted midi floral pencil skirt. She kept her look classy with white sleeveless top and fun with cobalt blue ankle wrap sandals.
Can I just mention how awesome the photo is? I mean, the backdrop! Beyond gorgeous.
3. Who: Camille Co from It’s Camille Co
Camille mixes medias and prints like nobody’s business. Her knack for fashion and eclectic taste make her a fashion darling.
Here she is looking polished from head to toe in a striped midi pencil skirt belted at the waist. She punched up the skirt by pairing it up with a top boasting gold material in front and sheer sleeves. Take a cue from Camille and pair midi pencil skirts with classy pumps.
4. Who: Anastasia Siantar from Brown Platform
Anastasia seems to love unique pieces. Proof of that is her side printed pencil skirt. With its adorable and unique side print, it is an easy conversation starter. She toughened the sweetness of the skirt with a leather jacket and what looks like a black bustier top. And to give more than a touch of class, she punctuated the look with a pair of Louboutin pumps.
5. Who: Doina Ciobanu from The Golden Diamonds
Doina’s green pencil skirt from Givenchy is love. It’s a versatile piece you’d want to have in your closet. You can pretty much pair it with anything – tank tops, collared tops or, in Doina’s case, long sleeve button down tops.
So ladies, which of these looks do you want to copy? Try them all, by any means. After all, pencil skirts are easy to wear and pair up with other pieces in your closet.
