Pencil Skirt Versatility

by Nikki Willhite

Pencil skirts are a wardrobe basic, and make getting dressed easy.  Every woman should have a pencil skirt, in the neutral color of her choice.

Pencil skirts make life easier because of their styling.  They are a simple, straight skirt that goes with everything.  You can wear them with all the different styles of blouses and sweater, and with all types of patterned fabric.

You can dress them up, or dress them down, depending on what you wear on top and on your choice of accessories.

For most women, the color of choice is black.  All colors go with black.  However, some women may prefer to build their wardrobe around navy or brown autumn colors.  Choose what looks best to you, and stick to it.

There is nothing more frustrating than having orphan pieces of clothing in your closet that you want to wear but you need another item to go with them.

The only trouble you can get into with a pencil skirt is that if you buy one too short, or without enough fabric, it may be immodest.  Always sit in front of a mirror to check how you look when sitting in a skirt. 

Pencil skirts are a classic, for women or all ages.  They will last for years.  Buy a good wear and wear it again and again.  It is a simple living clothing strategy.
