It's Official: Pencil Skirts Are Back
Do you remember the last time you wore a pencil skirt? Chances are if your job doesn’t require a corporate dress code, it’s been a while, and it really didn’t feel like a problem. Well, then the S/S 18 runways happened. Thanks to designers such as Fendi, Prada, Gucci, and Max Mara, pencil skirts are having a major resurgence.
But forget the tight, uncomfortable versions of the past. This season pencil skirts are modern, practical, and interesting. The latest iterations have a slightly looser fit that cocoon your shape and allow for movement. They’re also a lot more fun. And seen in pastels, bright colours, bold prints, interesting textures (think sequins, feathers, embellishment!) and when styled with a tee, sneakers, or understated heels, they cast away any corporate connotations.
