A leather pencil skirt remains one of the best desk-to-date-night pieces to have in your wardrobe, and right now, the hemline I’m loving hits right below the knee. Because of their tailored shape, pencil skirts sit perfectly at the waist for a flattering fit, flattering every body type. One part modern and one part retro, it’s easy to wear this versatile silhouette with everything from a sexy silk tank to a conservative cashmere sweater.I love this high-shine navy number from Marks & Spencer: I decided to go monochrome with the entire look in dark blue, with a little pop of gunmetal silver on my heel.
If you want to give the matchy-matchy monochrome look a try, pick contrasting textures, that’s the key. I love the modern look of this skirt paired with the classically cozy sweater. Amped up with a metallic cutout heel, and a faux-stingray clutch, i think the different fabrics look cool together.
The coordinating color scheme is definitely something new for me, and I really love the way it turned out. What do you guys think?
