3 Ways to Style Your Pencil Skirt!

Hi there – nice to see you on FunkyForty xx

Of all skirts the pencil skirt has to be the most feminine. I love the way a well cut pencil skirt will show off your figure. Whether petite or curvy a pencil skirt will bring out the woman in you.

Here are 3 ways to style your pencil skirt and at the end another 3 superb skirts found especially for you available online.

1. For the Office

Shirt Vintage (similar), Skirt Prada (bought on sale), Pumps Vintage (similar)

In summer I love to wear pencil skirts to the office combined with a long sleeved shirt rolled up and matching sling back pumps. As with men the same applies to women – a long sleeved shirt will always look more professional than short sleeves .


You might think this seems warm but lets face it most offices have air conditioning anyway so it doesn’t really matter.


2. For a trip to town

3. Casual – the real vacation style

You can sort of tell that vacation style is my favourite can’t you – smile…

T-shirt vintage (similar), Espadrils vintage (similar)

I still tuck the t-shirt in ever so slightly at the front but have left it untucked at the back.
