The Pencil skirt, one of the most timeless and feminine wardrobe essentials, is the subject for this week’s sisters challenge.
We show two different ways to wear and style the most flattering of skirts: Nipped at the waist and knee length, this versatile all rounder is an endless source of inspiration for us!
Rebel: My pencil skirt is from TK Maxx and made of boucle / tweed material. I find boucle materials not made by Chanel difficult to wear as it can look old-fashioned – think German wife of a Bavarian bank branch manager! To avoid this provincial look, I consciously chose a simple, navy blue turtleneck jumper with opaque black tights and cream sandals to go with the tweed pencil skirt.
Rebel is wearing: Pencil skirt by TK Maxx, jumper by Rochas, sandals by BCBG, Trenchcoat by Burberry, Sunglasses by Hogan.
Romantique: For my pencil skirt look, I was inspired by Loewe’s feminine Autumn 2013 runway look of layering leather and sheepskin. Thigh high split leather pencil skirts and shearling coats prove that warm doesn’t mean compromising on style.
Inspired by Loewe’s runway look, Romantique is wearing: Chocolate brown leather pencil skirt from Ralph Lauren, raspberry turtleneck jumper by Uniqlo, sheepskin parka coat by Stefanel, flat ankle boots by Kurt Geiger and canvas cherub bag from Fiorucci.
