Pencil skirts are everything feminine and chic. I sometimes think I’m really from another generation, the 50’s to be precise. I love how formfitting they are and the way they hug curves, even on a slim petite person like myself. This skirt is what you’d call midi length because it falls below my knees, but it works so well because of the “tailored” silhouette. Of course, it must be form fitting otherwise it looks like I’m playing dress-up. Which is where I tailored it because it was a bit big in the waist and down to the hem.

The print isn’t overwhelming so it doesn’t cause distraction where it’s not needed. Pencil skirts work quite well for any function. It’s especially useful in a 9-5 job because it’s appropriate but also chic.
You can also dress it down for casual days and it works wonders for a holiday party. This one HERE & HERE  from Boohoo are what I am currently coveting for the New Year’s ball drop. It definitely works for a Christmas party too!

I can’t wait for all the festivities!
