Working Girl Wednesday :: The Pencil Skirt

pencil skirt

Happy Working Girl Wednesday! Today we're talking a workwear wardrobe staple :: the pencil skirt. I love a good pencil skirt because it can be flattering on almost every body type. You can never go wrong with a black pencil skirt in the workplace. Personally? I love a bright-colored pencil skirt to add a little pep to your workwear. Here are a few tips::

  • If you are insecure about your midsection, look for a pencil skirt with a banded waist. This will help conceal any insecurities.
  • Another thing to keep in mind when pencil skirt shopping is the fabric. Don't choose a thin fabric that is going to show every bump, bulge and {yes, we all have them!} ripple. You need to choose a substantial, structured fabric that keeps its shape, rather than forming around yours. 
  • Unless you are wearing a peplum top, always tuck your blouse into the pencil skirt. This should be taken into consideration when purchasing. Bring a button down or blouse into the dressing room with you and tuck it in to see how the skirt will fit when you do have that extra fabric.

Here are just a few of my favorite pencil skirts for your working girl wardrobe as spring approaches ::
