iRock Pencil Skirts

Pencil skirts should be a staple in every woman’s closet. Whether worn with boots, Chuck Taylors or a sexy heel, the silhouette never fails the curves of a woman.

Pencil skirts are a go-to for those who have a slender build but for also those of us who are thick in the hips. Instead of wearing a mini skirt that shows all of your goodies (who does that anymore?), pencil skirts straddle the perfectly stylish line of sexy yet professional. How is that ever wrong?!?

Playing with colors and silhouettes are key for taking this simple garment from the boardroom to Baby Boom ! (Corny, I know)

The first look is what I would wear maybe to a concert or dinner with the girls. A rock tee, peplum jacket, and a sexy heel. Throw on some thrifted jewelry and a clutch bag and you’re done!

Outfit 1 Details:

Peplum Jacket: Goodwill
Pencil Skirt: Target
Jimi Hendrix Tee: H&M (Men’s Department)
Clutch Cover: Clutched and Covered 
Heels: Zara

The second look is perfect for a date night with the boo. These sporty jackets are trending this season but why just wear them only with jeans and sneakers? Wearing a sporty jacket with a pencil skirt gives you a whole different vibe when trying to maximize the pieces in your closet.

Pencil skirts can take you from a job interview to a quick bite to eat with the family, it’s all in how you accessorize.

Outfit 2 Details:

Jacket: A’Gaci (I know, I haven’t shopped there since…well…only this one time!)
Polka Dot top: Old Navy
Pencil Skirt: Joe Fresh
Heels: Jessica Simpson (Waleo)
Custom African Print Clutch Cover: Clutched and Covered

      I used to rock them when I was thinner, but then became self conscious as I gained weight. I need to get some too.
