How-to (Styling)

Four ways to style a pencil skirt

Pair the skirt with a boxy jacket. This roomy, swingy piece balances the narrowness of the skirt and has a '50s ladylike appeal.

Tuck a full, dark-hued blouse into the skirt to give a dose of volume. Add black tights to winterize the look.
file
Pair the skirt with high-heeled boots. Just make sure that some skin (or skin covered in tights) shows, so that the line of the leg is obvious—otherwise you can look stumpy.

Belt a drapey knit jacket over a pencil skirt for a soft yet sharp effect; the nipped waist will create a pretty hourglass silhouette.
