It’s wedding, prom and Summer party season coming up, time to think about what to wear. There’s nothing more ladylike than a long pencil skirt (just be sure the hem hits either just below the knee, or mid-calf) and when it comes in a pretty pastel shade, you’ve got a match made in girly-girl heaven. This particular look is perfect for anything from a formal event to a black tie wedding. Why? Well, to start, the feminine shape is polished and sophisticated, and when worn with the right accessories, fashion-forward, too. I styled this flirty Erin Fetherston number (how gorg is the print on the base?) with a bright, decadent heel, and chose a ¾ length straight coat to slim and shape my silhouette. The result? A look that’s flawless (and comfy) enough for any fête.
