5 Ways To Wear Your Pencil Skirt

Posted on November 14 2016

Let’s face it, with a jam-packed calendar, the last thing any of us have time to think about in the morning is what we are going to wear. Often it’s a matter of whatever is back from the dry cleaners and suits the needs of my day. Do I have client meetings? Am I giving a presentation? Is there a photoshoot I need to be at?

No matter what it is, we all know that when you Look Good, you Feel Good. I get it! As I design the wardrobe for the WRITTEN women all around the world, I am always mindful of this. So for that reason, myself and the WRITTEN team have put together our favorite looks for every day and every occasion using one of the newest additions to the WRITTEN family, the Esther style pencil skirt.

Check out below to see the 5 ways that you can wear the Esther pencil skirt to match your mood, schedule, or occasion. We all want to get the most out of our wardrobe; now you can. 

1. Casual

Who says the pencil skirt is only for the office? Not us! With Fall weather upon us, pair your pencil skirt with sneakers and your favorite oversized sweater like this one from Free People. Stand out from the over abundance of athleisure and wear this look for a weekend full of holiday shopping or errand running. 


2. Work Ready

Who wants to dress for the man’s world? Say no to another pantsuit and try out this pencil skirt look for a day at the office. Any day will be taken from ordinary to extraordinary by pairing our Esther statement pencil skirt with statement shoes and a statement blouse to start your day off right. Blouse from DVF and shoes are Vince Camuto.

Throw on a crisp white tuxedo blazer like this one from James Jeans to polish the look even further for board meetings. We figure the meeting may be a snooze, but your look doesn’t have to be. 

3. Girl’s Night

Get attention for all the right reasons with this look that balances class and sass for a girl’s night out. You work hard and deserve to play just as hard. Pair your pencil skirt with a faux wrap bodysuit like this one from TopShop, and throw on a leather jacket for the ultimate in cool girl chic. 

4. Trendy

Even if you aren’t a fashion blogger, you can still dress like one. Mix and match trends like camouflage prints and mid-calf boots to elevate your pencil skirt from the classic staple you love to the modern statement piece you adore. Sweater from Dance and Marvel found here and Matisse boots

5. Day To Night

For those early to rise, late to bed days, we say you only need two things to conquer the day: 1. A fabulous pencil skirt, and 2. an oversized tote to carry a spare pair of shoes. In this look we paired our Esther pencil skirt with a fun and flirty tiered sleeve blouse.

For day, wear a cami underneath for coverage and sensible tasseled loafers like these Franco Sarto.

For night, simply remove cami and throw on chunky heeled boots and you’re ready to let your hair down. 

There you have it ladies, 1 skirt, 5 ways…proof it can be done! Show us how you paired your pencil skirt this week. #PSEVERYDAY
