Trend to try: Pencil skirts (for every budget)

Trend to try: Pencil skirts (for every budget)

Out and about, I’ve noticed pencil skirts are a bit of a trend within a (ladylike) trend… a micro-trend, if you will. They are everywhere you turn, in every store, in every fabric, colour and print you’re fashionable little mind can possibly dream up. So why is this good news? Well, how much time do you have? They’re a classic piece that will never go out of style, can be worked for any occasion, and will suck you in in all the right places before drawing the eye to a flattering point on your leg… Have I pursuaded you yet?

Sussan is loving pencil skirts just as much as me at the moment, and they’ve passed on this nifty guide that shows you 4 different ways to wear them stylishing and on-trend for daytime, weekends, Saturday nights and in the office. Which is your favourite look?
