Pencil skirts for work or for play
Pencil skirts are a real weakness for me. A pencil skirt has the magical powers to make anyone look beautiful, curvy, and smart. To me, whatever your figure, the pencil skirt will make you look beautiful and feel good. With a straight narrow cut and slim fit, the pencil skirt is a great looking fashionable garment. This holiday season I have decided to add yet another lovely pencil skirt to my wardrobe.
Pencil skirts are generally knee length or slightly below it. In fact, it is a must-have item for any woman who loves to dress up fashionably. Introduced by the French designer Christian Dior, the pencil skirt began as office wear. Today however, this versatile piece of garment can be worn as casual wear, teamed with a button down top or shirt with flats, or worn as formal wear with a nice blouse and a pair of high heels. Nightime or daytime, the pencil skirt is ideal for any and every occasion. This figure hugging delight makes you look curvy with the wonderful cut that it has.
What should you look for when buying a pencil skirt? The material of the pencil skirt, the brand, and the color or shade that you choose are things you need to keep in mind. The material of the skirt should be durable. For the skirt to last you for a long time, the material has to be good and of high quality. When it comes to color, choosing a black, brown or any other neutral color is ideal because it can be teamed with most of the blouses or tops in your collection. For instance, this black Eileen Fisher clinging pencil skirt would be my choice if I had to pick one pencil skirt. Of course for the more adventurous among you, there are many colors here that you will love to try on.
Choosing one from a known brand will be good for you and can ensure great quality. Good stitching and high quality will ensure that the pencil skirt lasts you for awhile. Pick the right size so that you feel comfortable or else you may find it difficult walking in a very tight skirt.
So whether it’s for work or for play, a pencil skirt is a fashion must-have!
