Trench Coat

The Pencil Skirt

The perfect balance of serious and feminine, the pencil skirt exudes sophisticated glamour.

How to wear:

The slim-fitting pencil skirt is a discreet blend of sensible and sensual for the style confident. Wear high-waisted to lengthen the body, teamed with a fresh white shirt and nude peep-toes for work or with fine knits and sparkle for evening. Just remember – high heels are always required.

Style story:

Introduced by Christian Dior in the late 1940s as an alternative to the full skirts of the New Look style; America’s sensible sweetheart Debbie Reynolds through to the sexy wiggle of Marilyn Monroe worked the pencil skirt to maximum effect – showing off without showing all.
