The wardrobe stable the pencil skirt

Do you have one

For so long it has been the wardrobe stable of the working woman

You might not think of the pencil skirt as being sensual


and sophisticated

You  might just think it’s corporate

or very sexy

But take another look

It could be just the practical but glamourous addition to your wardrobe that you need

Take one wardrobe staple pencil skirt

in black

or camel

or bronze


one beautiful top in a beautiful fabric

or an oversized top with balloon sleeves

Then keep everything else quite sleek

Slingback shoes or high heels

Or if it’s summer bare legs and sandals

black sandals look great with bare legs and a black pencil skirt

Keep make up light

add a slick of lipstick

Brush your hair and have it ‘au naturel’

Revive the wardrobe staple the pencil skirt

It’s easy to wear when working from home

or back in the office

Keep it glam though
