How To Wear A Pencil Skirt For Work

Ways to Wear a Pencil Skirt

#1 -- Wear a Leather Pencil Skirt
We see a lot of leather, especially black leather, fashion during the fall and winter seasons, and certainly looks in leather continue in popularity. Wearing a pencil skirt in black leather is a way to look slimmer and trendy at the same time.

A black leather pencil skirt seems sexier than a pencil skirt made of fabric, so it's probably a good idea not to wear a leather skirt to work, but save it for other occasions.

 #2 -- Wear a Pencil Skirt with a Jacket
A second way to wear a pencil skirt is paired with a jacket. It could be a leather jacket, such as the burgundy style worn by petite Kris Jenner pictured above, a jean jacket, or a tailored jacket of a fabric such as wool or linen.

For women who have a tummy, wearing a jacket with a pencil skirt is an easy way to hide the tummy and give the wearer a sleeker appearance.

 #3 -- Wear a Pencil Business Suit Skirt
Most skirt suits meant for business attire come with pencil skirts although a few come with other skirt styles, such as the A-line skirt. Wearing a pencil skirt with its matching suit jacket makes a winning combination as business formal attire.

 #4 -- Wear a Monochromatic Pencil Skirt
Wearing a monochromatic ensemble helps the wearer look thinner and taller, good bonuses for petites. Wearing a pencil skirt as part of a monochromatic scheme works well because a pencil skirt has a much sleeker appearan

 #5 -- Wear a Pencil Skirt with a Sweater
For a look that works well both in the workplace and for off-duty hours, pair a pencil skirt with a sweater or a sweater set such as the twin set worn by Princess Letizia of Spain pictured above.

Pencil Skirt: #6 -- Wear a Pencil Skirt with Boots
Wear a pencil skirt with knee-high boots. To avoid "gaposis," make sure that the hem of the pencil skirt and the top of the boots at least meet. Having a gap between them is a sure way to emphasis a petite woman's short stature, but having the hem of the pencil skirt fall to the top of the boots creates one long vertical line.

:#7 -- Wear a Print Pencil Skirt

Although pencil skirts of solid colors are great, petites shouldn't believe that a pencil skirt in a solid color is the only option. Petites should avoid huge motifs when selecting a pencil skirt in order to maintain a proportional look.

 #8 -- Wear a Dark Neutral Pencil Skirt

I often wear a black pencil skirt, and it's easy to rely on black as a go-to color, but a pencil skirt in a dark neutral color, such as the charcoal pencil skirt pictured above, can work just as well as black for the petite woman who has a triangle-shaped figure.

 #9 -- Wear a Pencil Skirt with a Dressy Top
Pencil skirts can be worn for special occasions, such as a cocktail party. Combine a dressy pencil skirt with a top, such as the lace top pictured above, and you're all set for a night on the town.
