Sharpen Your Pencil Skirt Game

I’m here to let you know that it’s time to switch up your wardrobe by finally incorporating that pencil skirt that you have stuffed in the back of your closet. Pencil skirts give off that sleek and sophisticated look no matter how you choose to wear them. They can so easily be worn casually or dressed up by pairing them with various accessories and different articles of clothing.

1. Blanket scarf

Add a blanket scarf — or any scarf, for that matter. If you do not know what a blanket scarf is, go check out my #MGBurritoLife article. Pairing the skirt with a scarf will complete the overall comfy/cozy-yet-still-kinda-put-together look.

2. Shoe Choice

The shoe choice can also completely change the overall look of the outfit by either dressing it down or refining it for a night out. Below, I have paired my Zara pencil skirt with Nike Air Max sneakers. To show some contrast, Sufi paired her skirt with open toe heels, which of course dress things up.

3. Maxi Cardigan

The narrow shape of the skirt tends to hug the body, so it’s really well paired with a maxi cardigan. Check out the way that bloggers Sania, Yusra, and Sejuti have styled it below.
