The pencil skirt is just so hot right now and will be one of your go-to items well into next winter. Why? Well, it’s not just because it looks sexy, it also helps pull together any of the key trends of the season, from block colours to fetish, mixing up your textures, and the more obvious 1940s themes seen all over the winter catwalks. We also love a pencil skirt because you can wear it right now with your summer sandals or when the weather cools down, with knee-length winter boots.
Our top tip is to look for a skirt that sits just below the knee, like our very own Tluxe version, which is the most flattering style, unless of course you have the knees of a supermodel and can sport something shorter. Then throw on something simple and graphic, like a boxy tunic-style top, a simple crew-neck number or a jacket with a peplum, et voila, you’ve mastered one of the season’s smartest looks, which has the added bonus of taking you from boardroom to cocktail bar without having to do little more than freshen up your makeup.
