In a time when the mini skirt has become so ubiquitous within our generation, the pencil skirt feels fresh, clean, and new. And Gosh, are we delighted! With the onset of Christian Dior’s classic fitted below the knee style, women in the workforce took to wearing the sleek separate for a demure, yet still feminine appearance in the office. Today the pencil skirt has been re-invented; with contemporary designers playing with its shape and proportion to create a new silhouette with the same demure, yet womanly feel. Prada has been experimenting with it for years, and Marc Jacobs (for his own line and for Louis Vuitton) sent models of all ages and body types down the runway wearing not a single above the knee hemline.
A pencil skirt adds curves, creates long slimming lines and accentuates all the places that should be shown off! The pencil skirt is riding a high wave of modesty, modernity, and femininity!
