5 Cool New Ways To Style Your Pencil Skirt

By  | 

With athleisure being a wildly popular trend among millennials, women are now seen drowning their curves in oversized hoodies and joggers.

While we are all for comfort-chic, you’ve got to admit that trends such as Hygge and athleisure have been destroying feminine fashion bit by bit.

However, with Prada, Gucci, Fendi, Erdem and others featuring pencil skirts in their latest collections, it is time for all the girly girls to rejoice as structured, powerful yet feminine pencil skirts are back in fashion.

Pencil skirts in 2018 have a longer hemline, making them more flattering. Sure, these skirts come with a corporate reputation, but we are here to break that!

Here are 5 cool ways to style your pencil skirt and make it work for any occasion.

1. Street chic

One quick way to dress your pencil skirt down is to pair it with a graphic tee. You could either tuck it in or tie it on the side to give it an instant cropped look. Throw a leather or denim jacket on to give the look more structure.

2. Game time!

With IPL season right around the corner, here is a cool way in which you can dress your jersey up. Pair your jersey with a solid colour pencil skirt. Avoid printed skirts. A solid colour will give the look uniformity and is a no-fail formula.

3. Corporate twist

If you are bored of wearing your pencil skirt with the same old shirt to work, try this look. Simply pair your go-to skirt with a tank top in a neutral colour and add a pop of colour to the look using your blazer. Pick bright colours such as a fiery red, electric blue, vivid teal or a deep purple.

4. Colour block

While colour blocking may seem intimidating, the safest way to try this trend is to do it with structured silhouettes like a pencil skirt. Pick pastel hues such as millennial pink, sky blue or lime yellow for the same. Just make sure you match the shoes with your skirt or pick a neutral hue.

5. Classic Neutrals

The easiest, no-fail way to style your pencil skirt, and accentuate your curves is to pick neutral shades such as nude and pastel hues. A contrasting top will draw the right kind of attention, and make this a statement look.

Hope we have inspired you to pull that pencil skirt out and give it a fresh new twist.
