Investment Pieces – Pencil Skirts
A pencil skirt works well in a work environment. I wear mine with blazers, cardigans, sweaters, etc. I love all the ones shown above. Not all of us can invest in all of these at once. I suggest starting with the neutral colors like black, navy, and cream first, then building on from there. The above colors are just a suggestion. If you work in a less conservative work environment, you may want skirts with bolder colors and prints.
I have wide hips, so it’s hard for me to find brands that work well for my body type. If I find a pencil skirt that fits my hips, then it’s too big for my waist. So, the best practice for me is to buy a skirt that’s a bit too big then have it altered. Because I know this about my body, I usually wait for sales, knowing I’ll have to pay a bit more for alteration.
Wearing a pencil skirt with pumps always makes me feel professional, put together and powerful. Who doesn’t want to feel like that?
