Pencil Skirts: A Guide

by: Autumn Murray, Brand Ambassador

Christian Dior introduced the pencil skirt in his 1954 fall collection, and it quickly rose to fame. Known for enhancing a woman’s natural curves, this garment is the perfect choice when you want to strike just the right balance between modesty and sex appeal. Pencil skirts are a strong, versatile mainstay for any wardrobe. From a day in the office to a night on the town, this skirt can easily take you from business professional to glamorous vixen. With help from our Bettie Page styling team, we have put together several outfits featuring this trusty staple as your go-to! 

You can never go wrong with a classic black pencil skirt, and our black High Time Skirt delivers! Pair it with our modest Twist and Shout top along with our Sally heels, and you have a sexy but professional look that is perfect for office attire. Planning on grabbing some drinks after work? No problem! This transfers to a great night look: just take your hair from up to down, throw on some dark red lipstick, and you are ready to paint the town!

Want something with a little more pizazz? Search no further than our High Time skirt in gold. This statement piece screams for everyone to look your way. We suggest pairing it with a subtler colored top, but don’t be afraid of texture – like you’ll find in our Bella Top in black! Add a red heel, such as our Selene shoes, to this drop-dead gorgeous outfit to give it an extra pop! 

Are you a gal who must have a bold pattern in your life at all times? Then the Kitty Kat High Time skirt is in your future! An adorable mint green adorned with the silhouette of cats, this skirt pairs very well with our Bettie top in black. Keeping with this playful theme, match with our Niley sandals so that you can go all day long with this fun and flirty outfit!
