The pencil skirt is not only a wardrobe classic but a stylish staple that  looks good on EVERYONE! The only rule of thumb to make this wardrobe wonder WONDERFUL on you is to check the fit. Make sure it doesn’t pull, bunch, sag or bag and you’ll be in business. If your seeking to find the perfect pencil and it just doesn’t happen-consider purchasing one that fits you smoothly in the hip area and have it tailored to fit. For my complete wardrobe style rules on the Pencil Skirt click onto http://www.gotoglamourgirl.com/2009/07/22/pencil-it-in/

Fall Must Have ..The Pencil Skirt

Houndstooth Pencil $88.00

Every Glamour Girl (no matter what size or shape) should own at least one pencil skirt! It looks good on everyone-and is so versatile. Dress it up, dress it down -the pencil skirt offers a multitude of fashionable options. 

When purchasing a pencil skirt you need only remember a few basic rules:

1. Fit is KEY!

2. If you find the perfect pencil and it fits at the hip but the waist is to big just have it taken in at your favorite tailor. If it’s tight all over go up a size (and have it tailored to fit).If the label inside bothers you with the stated number that you’re wearing-just cut out the label and tuck it away so you can remember the cleaning instructions). 

3.The best length is either at the knee or just above if you have great legs.

As I sourced the web to  find the perfect pencil I went to numerous fashion sites…but surprise ..surprise who else but the peeps at White House Black Market had the best selection, the most affordable prices ($88.00 for most styles and $78.00 for the uber basic) not to mention fantabulous reviews). So “pencil yourself  in” this fall must have. You’ll be so glad you did!

Here we go! It’s almost the end of July and even though the temp today in SUNNY California is 101 degrees, I am finally ready (and I hope you are)- to talk Fall Fashion 2009-2010.

First up-The Pencil Skirt.

 A fashion staple that will look good on EVEYBODY- promise! All you have to remember are two simple rules to make this fashion item look good and last forever:

Ready? Grab your pencil and take note:

Rule #1: Make sure your pencil skirt fits! Meaning: It should sit comfortably around the waist and glide past your hip to reach knee or just above knee length. Translation:- no pulling, gaping, bunching of fabric at the hip, derriere(bum/booty) whatever you want to call it … or any other area heading down to the knee.  If you need a larger size that will alleviate the gaposis problem then purchase skirt to fit your widest area and have the waist altered to fit you. There is this amazing resource called a TAILOR. A good tailor doesn’t cost a fortune and can alter the waist and length in no time flat.

Rule #2: Optimal skirt length on every woman is just above or at the knee. If it’s to long…..-H.E.M. it.

A good pencil skirt will last a lifetime.
