pencilskirtThe pencil skirt always makes it onto the wardrobe staples list, but many women struggle when it comes to wearing it outside of the office. We are all about this longer length right now, which is why we’re styling pencil skirts for a night on the town and a casual weekend.

For a look that you can wear for both work and play we suggest opting for a black pencil skirt with a little slit up the side, nothing inappropriate, just enough to add a little sex appeal to your look. Pair your pencil skirt with a tucked in gray racer back tank top, black blazer and sky high black pumps. This look is subtly sexy for the office environment, but once you’re done with work peel off that blazer and show off a little skin for happy hour. All you’ll need to do once you remove the blazer is throw on a navel length pendent necklace for a little extra bling.

Try The Trend Tips
Pencil skirts are ready to be worn outside the office and we highly recommend that you do because this type of skirt is super trendy and chic.

Pencil skirts come in all different lengths and cuts so you’ll have to keep this in mind when looking for the right one for you. If you are short in stature opt for a skirt that hits about an inch above your knee. Whereas if you’re taller go for a skirt that ends slightly below the knee.

A fun variation of this trend is the peplum accented pencil skirt, not only does it cover up any problem areas in the tummy region, it also adds a fun and flirty aspect to your look.
