In Irish fashion news, we are going to look at stylish ways to help you embrace the pencil skirt look this season. Whether you want to channel your inner Hollywood siren, your powerful businesswoman or high fashion mogul, a pencil skirt is your secret weapon.
Pencil skirts have been flooding the catwalk. From knitted styles and bold prints to floral designs, this fashion staple has been getting a modern makeover.
Here are some ways to style your favourite pencil skirts for the ultimate stylish outfit.
Denim Pencil Skirt
If you love the styles of Alexa Chung and Chloe Sevigny, you need to own a denim pencil skirt. A perfect piece to have in your wardrobe, the denim skirt is chic, cool and laidback.
It’s also an easy piece to style. If you want to wear double denim, go for it. If you want to pair your skirt with some classy stilettos, do it. Don’t be afraid to experiment with vintage pieces for a truly unique outfit.
Add a pair of simple heels to elongate your legs and elevate your look.
Leather Pencil Skirt
A leather pencil skirt is a sultry and powerful addition to add to your wardrobe. To balance this statement piece and keep your outfit looking sophisticated, choose tops with high necklines and long sleeves. Play with shapes and textures while keeping your colours neutral.
Complete your look with some sleek, high heeled ankle boots.
Floral Pencil Skirt
Fun, feminine and flamboyant, adding some flowers to your look is always a good thing. There are no set rules to styling a floral skirt but there are some simple tricks you can use to create a memorable outfit.
If you’re wearing a light floral skirt, look for tops in light colours. This creates a delicate and highly versatile. If you love dark florals, pair your skirt with a dark sheer or lace top for a sophisticated look.
For a more unique outfit, why not wear a ‘clashing’ print blouse, coat or shirt.
Sequin Pencil Skirt
The key to wearing a sequinned pencil skirt is to keep the rest of your outfit simple. A classic white shirt or black t-shirt can elevate this look from disco diva to fashion trendsetter.
Lace Pencil Skirt
Lace is the ultimate feminine fabric to compliment the flattering pencil skirt silhouette. For those of your who believe that lace is dated, old-fashioned or not for them, put aside those thoughts. The delicate material can be the centre piece of a modern and refreshing outfit.
If you are wearing a lace pencil skirt, it will be the first thing people know about your outfit. You will, therefore, want to elongate your legs by wearing some nude stiletto heels. This will trick the eye to move towards the ground and give you an extra few inches.
As lace is a detailed fabric, there are two wears you can go about finding a top to wear. You can match intricacy with intricacy by wearing a matching lace shirt or camisole. You can wear something clean and simple for a versatile and modern outfit.
