When Jordana Paige asked me to style three pencil skirt looks for fall I jumped at the chance. I love Jordana’s bags (check out this bag- perfect for a teacher or busy mom on the go) and what her company stands for. Plus, I can’t resist a good pencil skirt or helping other women come up with ways to refresh their current wardrobes or find new pieces to add to their fall arsenal! See look one here.
The innate femininity of a pencil skirt makes it a go-to piece for date night as it plays up your feminine wiles. A pencil skirt with a classic leopard print has instant style and ladylike sex appeal. Choose accessories that add an element of fun while still retaining a classic, feminine feel in order to keep the outfit from reading too somber.
In this look, the sheer polka dot sleeves of the sweater and the leopard print of the skirt help elevate the two closet staples (sweater and pencil skirt) beyond basic pieces. The curve of the sleeves’ dots and the curve of the skirt’s print add visual interest and further emphasize the feminine lines of the entire look. The accessories (statement necklace, belt, and heels) don’t compete for attention since they are all the same hue; rather, they complement the sweater and skirt with their sophisticated glamour and whimsical touches.
