Pencil Skirts For Women

Do you want to flatten your waist, highlight your shapes, look weaker and be no matter the occasion? The solution is simpler than you think. All you need is a pencil skirts for women … or more if it’s so versatile. These skirts embrace your body, follow your shapes closely, which is why they are considered so feminine and sensual. Their hem crosses the knee and sometimes reaches halfway up the leg. Therefore, only thin ankles can be worn without heels, the others, in order to give the illusion of long legs, heels are recommended. Pencil skirts look great on silhouettes with a flatter abdomen and bulging bottom. If you are not among the happy ones, as I count myself, at least be careful with your underwear: the higher panties, which will flatten your abdomen, possibly without seams that can be seen through the molded material. 

The pencil skirt has been in women’s wardrobe for decades, but now it’s back in trend, more chic than ever. The reason? No matter what your silhouette, you’ll look fabulous in a pencil skirt. No wonder it’s a timeless piece. If in the past, we looked strictly from the perspective of an office wardrobe, she now accompanies us successfully at the cocktail, in the park, and even on the red carpet.

If you have a para silhouette, choose a skirt in a solid color, preferably in a darker shade than the top. Attract attention to the top by opting for skirts in bright colors or with bold prints. However, if you have a generous bust but would get a good extra centimeter on your hips, do the opposite. The color gate uniches up and uses bold prints on the skirt to create the impression of voluptuous shapes.

Do you want to thin your waist, highlight your shapes, look thinner and be chic no matter the occasion? The solution is simpler than you think. All you need is a pencil skirt … or more, if they’re still that versatile.

The pencil skirt has been in the women’s wardrobe for decades, but now it is back in trend, drier than ever. The reason? Regardless of your figure, you will look fabulous in a pencil skirt. No wonder it’s a timeless piece. If in the past, we looked at it strictly from the perspective of an office wardrobe, now it successfully accompanies us to the cocktail, in the park, even on the red carpet.

If you have an even figure, choose a skirt in a solid color, preferably in a darker shade than the top. Draw attention to the top by opting for skirts in bright colors or with bold prints. However, if you have a generous bust, but it would fit a few extra inches on your hips, do the opposite. Wear solid colors on top and use bold prints on the skirt to create the impression of voluptuous shapes.

A pencil skirt can be worn with lots of blazers, jackets or blouses. However, if you want to create an hourglass silhouette and lengthen your figure, wear a ruffled top (if you have a pear silhouette) or one with a deep V neckline (if you have a voluptuous chest).

The pencil skirt comes in so many variations that it is impossible not to find one that works on your body. A short skirt with a high waist will lengthen your legs, and one with peplum will add shapes where they are not or will make a plump woman look thinner. Find the right size – too wide and it will thicken your waist, be too tight and create unwanted curls in certain areas.

First of all, a pencil skirt should fit perfectly on the smallest part of your waist, to make it stand out, and then follow the shapes of the hips. If it starts to tighten immediately below the hips, it will accentuate them too much. Choose, instead, one with a slightly tapered skirt, but not a bandage type. Regarding the hem, it depends on your personal preferences, but there are some rules that you can take into account here as well. A petite will look best in a short skirt, while a woman of normal or tall stature will highlight her legs with a hem that falls above or immediately below the knee. That is, where your legs are thinner.

Choose a neutral color – it works in any circumstance and can accompany you to a cocktail with friends, according to the schedule. Be sure to insert the blouse in the skirt for a more neat look. Plus it accentuates your waist. You can also wear it with a cambered blazer or a fitted cardigan.

In order to be worthy of this name and to have the necessary qualities to “pencil” the silhouette, the skirt should be cut from a solid but slightly elastic material. It can be made of lace, leather, tweed, cotton with elastane, polyester and viscose.

It is important that the hem stops at the middle of the knee. The ’80s were long gone, only then were skirts with a hem 2 palms above the knee. You can choose it with a slit in the back, with or without peplum, with a drape or a basque in the pool area…

What was I wearing the pencil skirt with? For a day look, for the office: – with a blue shirt or in another plain color, open with more than 2 buttons and with beige-nude pumps – with a cotton sweater, up to the waist and sandals with multiple straps – with a plaid shirt, tied at the waist, white sandals with thick heel and a statement necklace – with a simple T – shirt and a jacket / vest (sleeveless, tuxedo inspired).
