You’re going to want to pencil down these details…


There’s one thing I gladly take from 1950’s fashion and that’s the pencil skirt. I own about seven of them. They’re classic, easy to style, and you can wear them all throughout the year (extra points!). In summer you can fashion them with sandals and a tank and in winter just throw on some tights and booties.


But my favorite way to style them is with a simple tee. I love dressing down a fancier piece of clothing with a casual piece. I do it often.


  1. It’s comfortable.

  2. It’s unexpected.

  3. My closet is full of every tee ever made…

Other ways I style a pencil skirt:

  1. With a crisp button down shirt. Think office chic.

  2. With a loose button down (think chambray) for a little more relaxation and contrast.

  3. Belting it. I often add a skinny belt for a little extra something something.

  4. Heels. I love any shoe with a heel. I love them now because one day I probably won’t be able to walk in them.

  5.  Flats. Whether closed toed or sandals, I’ll throw these on for still a completely pulled together look.

I usually gravitate to pencil skirts with some pizazz (yes I just said pizazz).  I often wear ones with a unique color, texture, or print. It’s a twist on the classic look and way to make it your own. I snagged this olive green lace one from Express the other day. P.S. it’s on SALE! And I definitely had my eye on it in sour cherry. 

I’m fawning over these ones lately…
