Pencil skirts are an attractive choice for many women because they're slimming and quite fetching. These wonderful skirts are made to hug your figure, making them a tight fit. There are a few options for tops that go well with pencil skirts. Because these skirts are tight, one natural choice is a blouse that is loose and flowy, so that it helps balance the outfit.
With a high-waisted pencil skirt that's reminiscent of the 1950s, a stylish choice is a blouse that can be tucked into the skirt. This outfit creates an optical illusion that makes your legs look longer because it appears that your legs extend up to your natural waist. This look works especially well for women with long torsos.
The third top that goes well with this skirt is a tight-fitting sleeveless blouse that is paired with a jacket or worn with a decorative scarf. This balances out the outfit while looking fabulous.
Pencil skirts come in varying lengths. Generally, you'll find three: right above the knee, at the knee, and below the knee. The length you choose will largely depend on what you'll wear with it. If you choose a skirt that goes below your knees, you'll want to wear heels with it, especially if you wear it with a long top. Longer skirts like this can shorten the appearance of your legs, so heels help negate this. On the other hand, if you want to wear flats, go for a shorter length of skirt.
The fun thing about pencil skirts is they're not just one style. The typical pencil skirt is just a form-fitting skirt with a high waist, but there are lots of variations beyond this. You'll find skirts with lace accents, slits, sheer panels, and more. These details help to add more to the skirts than the typical design.
There are also many colors to choose from. Choose a solid color skirt with texturing, such as lace and satin, or go for a skirt with a pattern or printed design. There are animal print skirts, ones with paisley designs, and floral options as well.
