If you’re looking to be traditional by wearing a pencil skirt to work, go for layers. Tuck in a printed blouse that’ll make you stand out in the boardroom, throw on a blazer or jacket and pile on eye-catching jewelry like bracelets and a statement necklace. A chic pair of classic pumps and a luxe tote bag will only elevate the office look even more.

Headed to drinks with your friends or colleagues? Look classy, yet fun with a basic black pencil skirt and a flirty shirt. Try one in a silk fabric if you want to appear a little fancier. Add a chic bag and either stilettos (or flats if you’re going to be standing the entire night) to complete your outfit.
For the weekend

Impress your man with a sexy pencil skirt. (e.g., black with cool zippered detailing) Add a crop top to show some skin, bright (totally sexy) colored pumps, fierce jewelry, and trust us, he won’t be able to take his eyes off of you.
For a night out

Headed to a night out with your girls? Ditch that flowy skirt or skinny jeans for a flashy metallic pencil skirt. Tuck in a vibrant top (like a printed graphic tee) and slip into sky-high heels to dance the night away in style.
