What to Wear With a Pencil Skirt

Pencil Skirt had always been the symbol of classic style for women all over the world since Christian Dior introduced it in late 1940s. It is not too short, but then again not too long, and it extenuates your curves in the best way, and hides all imperfections by giving you that hour–glass silhouette that all ladies crave for!

Pencil skirt can be matched up easily with shirts, blouses, jackets, high–waisted belts, and mixed with different kind of shoes. Depending on the style you like, pencil skirt can give you that classic Hollywood look, but also a bit more edgy and modern appeal. With its good form, it draws your eyes from the women’s knees, up to the curves of her hips, and then ends at tiny waist giving you that sexy back and front.

In today’s article we will show you some of the best ways to wear a pencil skirt, whether you are going to the office or on a cocktail party. Here are a few outfits that you can combine with this skirt:
