If you hadn’t invested in a pencil skirt last year, now is your second chance. Fall’s 2016 Fashion must-have is a mid-length skirt that preferably has a mid-calf reach. The pencil skirt meets that requirement and is a perfect wardrobe piece to bring out your curvy shape in a chic and classy way. Paired with a crisp white shirt, and pair of pumps, you instantly create a classic business look. The proper way to wear a pencil skirt is high-waist so it follows your curves and creates that glasshour silhouette.
How to accessorize
I love to channel a Parisian chic style in my business attire, because let’s be honest, the French and Italians are the best dressed people in the world. With a playful baret, a dusty pink handbag and a messy side-knot hairdo that French sophistication is easily achieved. Style is in my opinion foremost in the details. That’s why I’m totally in love with my pink lady cufflinks from NAN.
After my business meeting it is time to commute home. Time to kick off the high heels and resort to a comfortable pair of flats. Although flats completely change your posture, they are still a good match with a pencil skirt. On colder days you can even wear boots underneath your skirt which will give it a more robust, but still feminine appeal.
