Here's how we wear: Pencil skirts

1: Christy from Another Weekend without Make Up. 2: Hello fringe. 3: Laura from That's So Yesterday. Julia from Julia Alice.

Friday, Friday, Friday. Hooray for the weekend! But boo to the dark evenings! Winter has definitely sprung upon us pretty quickly, so the thicker tights are out, and the snuggly knits are on. But we don't have to always look like marshmallows in the cold. Nope we can still look feminine and, dare I say it, svelte too. So this week, I decided to pick what shows us off as real beautiful women, and also keeps us pretty snug, yet stylish, throughout the Winter.. 
The Pencil skirt.

Christy says "I love how ladylike pencil skirts make you feel, and a peplum top really emphasises your curves! They're versatile too - smart for work and sexy for play :)"
I say "My lace pencil skirt is a favourite. I always try to keep it simple, by wearing an oversized tee or blouse to make myself look cool. Although, it's kept for those 'I'm being healthy days'.. I totally can't eat in it!"
Laura says "I tend to dress pencil skirts down. I usually wear them with a t-shirt and for night you can always throw on some heels to instantly add some glam."
Julia says "The material drew me to this pencil skirt as it's a lovely soft fitted jersey, making it perfect for casual days. I paired it with this studded jumper to create a kind of 'vamp' look and also wore my heeled boots which never leave my feet for winter."

Are you a fan of the pencil skirt? How do you wear yours? Lavish Alice have some lovely ones in at the moment.. My favourite is definitely this wine coloured one! Perfect for Winter.

    1. I used to think that too, but it's actually quite easy I think.. Throw a baggy tee, or jumper over it :) x

    1. Thanks Alice! That was the same with me, I also struggled to find one that went over my huge ass, but catered for my small waist! But actually the length isn't a problem :) x

    Whenever I see your fringe it makes me want to get mine cut back in. Fringe envy.
