those two things combined have put mr. style and i behind on our photos. but i didn’t think you would mind taking a look at another timeless classic – the mighty pencil skirt. similar here, here, and here paired with a closet workhorse – the humble denim shirt similar here, here, and here.

the first pencil skirt was designed by christian dior in 1954. the slim fitting skirt was a dramatic shift away from tight waists and full skirts which had dictated fashion runways for several years.how to wear a pencil skirt

ever since the mid-fifties the pencil skirt has become a staple of work wardrobes with the hemline raising or lowering depending on the current trends.

pencil skirts look great with a cardigan or blazer. but can fly solo especially since many offices have relaxed the dress code. as you can see from today’s post they can easily be dressed down for a fun casual day.

snazzy prints that are eye catching are a nice change of pace. this skirt by j.crew has hung in my closet for about eight years or so. and i have to admit i love it just as much today as the day i purchased it. maybe because it’s pink and navy (a favorite color combo). or that i can add a pair of pink shoes similar here, here, and here into the mix.

whatever the reason, it’s good to have a classic pencil skirt on hand in solid colors and a fun print or pattern.
