First of all before you start matching things with your pencil skirt you should make sure you have the right pencil skirt. Patterned and colour blocked ones are great but it is also a good idea to have a simple black pencil skirt in your wardrobe that will go with just about any colour and style.

A peplum style is a good shirt to pair with your pencil skirt. It will tuck in your waist and accentuate your hips. Alternatively you can try a pencil skirt that already has a peplum waist which will give you the same effect.

Colourblocking is a great way to make a statement without clashing patterns. You can try a brightly coloured pencil skirt with a brightly coloured shirt for a simple and stylish look. Just make sure that each clothing item is plain and one colour.

Pencil skirts are often associated with formal wear and a good way to bring life back into the fashion item is to pair it with something casual like a t-shirt. This way you look casaul and relaxed but also put together and stylish.

A high waisted pencil skirt paired with a crop top is a great way to show some skin whilst keeping it sophistica.

A flattering day-to-evening piece

A pencil skirt is sleek, feminine and flattering and it's no surprise it is one of the timeless fashion pieces. But the trick is to avoid looking like you’re going to a 1940s-themed party and instead bring it up-to-date with 2019 styling.

In terms of tops, there are lots of options. You could consider off-setting the slim, fitted lines of the skirt with a baggy, slouchy sweater, or a big, frilly blouse. If you're tall and slim you could try a fitted t-shirt or office shirt to maintain the sleek line throughout; in this case use colour or texture to provide the contrast.

For outerwear a cropped jacket works best, so dig out your leather biker jacket, or try a faux-fur cropped jacket for a contrasting shape.

On your feet, stick to heels. Avoid trainers, ballet pumps and loafers as this look is about height and length. Heeled ankle boots look good, or for extra impact and if you can manage it, some killer heels.

A pencil skirt is usually thought of as day/office wear but it needn't be confined to that. You could team it with a sparkly top, some jewellery and heels for a glamorous evening outfit.

Be Confident in a Pencil Skirt

A pencil skirt is a good fashion piece for either work, evening wear or special occasions. The most flattering length is knee length and you can wear your skirt with either high heels or a smaller style heel. For work, choose a slightly heavier fabric and a block colour and match your skirt with a formal shirt in a complementary colour.

A tailored jacket also goes very well with a pencil skirt. For a night out or special occasion, wear your pencil skirt with a camisole top or wrapover top and go for either block colours or print.
