Welcome to a new series of posts called Skirt Outfits, and in these posts, once every week, we will take one specific kind of skirt, and dress it five different ways. These posts will take the place of the Skirt Factsination posts, and we are really excited about them! Our aim is to offer you suggestions on how to wear the same skirt many times over without getting tired of it. Maybe you could call it pre-thrifting! Wearing skirts over and over again can be new each time…but let us show you!
Our first one is Skirt Outfit: Pencil Skirt; five ways to wear a pencil skirt in winter. I made this khaki pencil skirt here a few weeks back, and now I’m bringing it back dressed five different ways.
1. The Casual Casual, (like sick day casual) Look.
This look is one of my favorites, just because it is so comfortable, and slouchy. I paired the pencil skirt with a slouchy blue knitted sweater, black leggings, and moccasins. Actually, you could call this the Boyfriend look, and actually, I took the sweater from my dad’s closet, and the moccasins are some old ones of my grandpa’s. This is a perfect look for lying around the house, or just for when you have a cold, and the great thing about it is that you can still be feminine and comfortable.
2. The Professional Businesswoman Look.
This look is also good for church, and I like the professional feel. I paired the pencil skirt with a long-sleeved white shirt, black ¾ sleeve sweater, black tights, and black heels. I thought that it looked a bit too plain, so I added a brown buckle belt to kind of break it up a little bit, which works great. This look is one of my favorites.
3. The On-The-Town Look.
You may remember this from the after picture of the pencil skirt post, but I really liked it, so I made it one of the five. I paired the pencil skirt with a bright blue button-up shirt, lace-front sweater, brown patterned tights, brown heels and a patterned scarf. This is a cute look for shopping, or going to the library, or just another nice occasion.
4. The Comfortable Chic Casual Look.
I paired the pencil skirt with a simple white undershirt, black Mary Jane flats, black jeweled buckle belt, and purple sweater. This is a nice look for when you have company, or are just relaxing at home on a good day. I like the casual look, and the sweater really is so loose that it has to have a belt, so you could play with that.
5. The Holiday Look.
Since Mom won’t be wearing it for a while, I borrowed her tall turtleneck sweater, and paired it with my brown slouchy boots, and a bright red scarf. A good idea is to jazz up a one or two color outfit with a bright matching color to draw the eye. You can see that the cat wasn’t too eager to be in the picture!!!
Well, give us your thoughts on my pencil skirt five ways outfits in the comment section, I hope I’ve inspired you somewhat. Which look of the five would you prefer to wear?
Always be Exciting,
