Anyone can wear a pencil skirt. A sleek silhouette it is universally flattering and is a piece that should form part of any capsule wardrobe. And it just so happens that this season, fashion is infatuated with them. Prada and Balenciaga sent models down the runway in pencil skirts and tweed was a massive style statement this season.
Just look at JLo's Instagram post from earlier this week. We love how she's wearing her pencil skirt. A designer belt to showcase her waist and the monochrome tweed couldn't be stronger. That woman knows how to dress her body shape!
The trick is to wear the pencil skirt well. A properly fitted skirt, it should skim the body due to its straight, narrow cut. It should fit neatly at the waist, continue down the hips and end just around the knee.
But what if you're not standard, model proportions? What if a size 12 is too tight and a 14 is 'swishing around' your hips? We often get asked "can pear shaped women wear a pencil skirt?" The answer is yes! But because of the nature of the pencil skirt, it's a style that's difficult to pull off when buying Off The Peg. You want to avoid a too large skirt that's baggy or a too small skirt that's clinging in all the wrong places.
