Wondering what to wear with pencil skirts? This post will give you five easy pencil skirt outfits you can pull off with items you may already on. From casual looks, to date night looks, here are some ideas on how you can rock that skirt!
Pencil skirts are instantly classy and sexy. But your look doesn’t have to be limited to high heels and a button down shirt. In fact you can wear your favorite pencil skirt outside of work and still look great. Pencil skirts are versatile pieces of clothing that can go form day to night and office to weekend brunch. Here are some ideas to inspire you to bust your pencil skirt out of its shell.
Casual pencil skirt outfits
To downplay a pencil skirt, I will pair it with sneakers and a tee. This combo helps to blend it into more casual events. I could wear this to a hang out with friends, exploring the town or for a day that involves lots of walking! For this look, I went with a sailor striped t-shirt, which is one of my staple tees, and sneakers.
I never used to be a huge sneaker person, I’m still not, but I wear them a little more now. If this type of look is not up your alley, ballet flats could also work, as would espadrilles, especially in the summer.
Another casual look you can wear with your pencil skirt is with a jean jacket, a light gauzy top.
The top doesn’t need to be lack 😉 If you want to dress this look up a little more, throw some heels and you will look a little more polished.
Casual-Dressy Pencil Skirt Outfits
Pencil Skirts can work really well if you are also looking for ways to wear it to an event like drinks with friends, a mixer, or any other casual social event.
Some of the ways you can wear your pencil skirt include with a chambray shirt and some accessories, or a tucked in loose fitting top. If you are into crop tops this may be an option as well, to balance, a loose-fitting crop top works best.
Pencil skirt outfits to wear to work
Other ways you can dress up your pencil skirts can be to wear them with a sweater, or a brooch and shirt to add flair. Again, I like to pair loosely fitting items to make it feel proportioned or balanced, but it really depends on what you are most comfortable with.
Pencil Skirt with a Sweater
For this look I chose a loosely knitted sweater in off-white, paired with some big costume pearls in shades of white, pink and grey.
Pencil Skirt with a button-down shirt
Ok, I know I talked about wearing other looks besides a button down shirt, but a s away to add flair to this staple look, think about throwing on an accessory like a cool scarf, or a brooch.
It helps make your outfit more remarkable and worth viewing.
