Black Pencil Skirt – 7 Ways

When it comes to great basics, a black pencil skirt is high on my list. I love this elasticated one from
Mr P because it fits well and because it’s zip-less, it’s really versatile. Here I’ve styled it 7 ways, for a variety of occasions.
With a crop top, for a dressier look.

With a strappy top, untucked.

With a loose, sweater-style top and casual jacket for a laid-back workwear look.

As a dress, paired with heels for a dressier occasion or flats for pool day.

With a shirt and structured blazer, and ready for business.

Casually paired with a fun knotted t-shirt.

As a dress, with a crop jacket – good for an event, or night out.

Do you have a black pencil skirt? I recommend it. If you’re afraid that it clings to your body and accentuates big hips and thighs, black will slim you down quite a bit. Pair it with tops that add bulk to your top half (with bright colour, prints, structured shoulders or other interesting details) to balance things out. I’ve adjusted the skirt length just by rolling it up.
