The pencil skirt is a perfect pick for work, or any other formal occasion you need to attend. The pencil skirt umbrella includes slim-fitted skirts with a straight and narrow cut. Just like a pencil, straight, slim and slightly narrowing towards the end. Before the pencil skirt there was the Hobble skirt, a short-lived trend that inspired the birth of the pencil skirt. The Hobble skirt limited the wearer’s stride, just like a pencil skirt often do. You can read more about the Hobble skirt here.
Christian Dior is the man behind the pencil skirt we know today, thank you Dior!
He introduced the modern pencil skirt in his fall/winter collection for 1954.
In this set I’m playing with black and white, and a little bit of red. I love the structural silhouette of this Roksanda Balmont skirt. I’ve styled it with a monochrome peplum top from BCBGMAXAZRIA, a printed jacket from Raul, printed pumps from Dolce & Gabbana and a Kate Spade New York lady bug clutch.
