As the weather gets cooler, it is essential to look for some heavier pieces for fall. Whether going to class or to a special event, a pencil skirt is the perfect piece to create a polished and chic look. Pencil skirts have been one of the ulitmate womanly staples for decades. This fall, they have been super hot on the runway, as seen at the recent Prada and Alexander McQueen shows. Pencil skirts can be worn as a funky runway piece or for simple, everyday wear. Depending on how you wear it, your pencil skirt is totally versatile, as it can be dressed up or down.
I spotted this CollegeFashionista on campus on-the-go after class. She sports a solid coral pencil skirt with a cute button detail down the front. This provides a little twist to the classic pencil skirt. In order to get a similar piece, I recommend shopping online on sites like ModCloth. I found a similar colored pencil skirt at ModCloth and they are all at an affordable price for CollegeFashionistas. If you are looking for a more professional look, look no further than your nearest J.Crew. J.Crew’s pencil skirts are one of their staple conservative pieces. J.Crew’s No.2 Pencil Skirt is in their luxe wool blend, which provides a great heavy material for the fall and winter. Did I mention these skirts will look fab with tights as the weather gets even colder?
To finish off her look, this Fashionista layers a lightweight oatmeal colored T-shirt over a basic cami. This layered look is a great way to make your pencil skirt appear more causal for everyday wear. Personally, I love J.Crew’s Basic Tissue T-shirts because they are ideal for layering. I usually find mine at my local J.Crew Factory store at a great price. In order to accessorize her casual pencil skirt look, she adds a funky and fun owl necklace. Recently, owl jewelry has became super popular to find in local boutiques. Last but not least, do not forget the awesome cowboy boots! As always, cowboy boots are so easy to pair with just about any outfit.
Happy pencil skirt shopping!
