Pencil Skirts are a wardrobe must have. You can sport a pretty pencil skirt no matter what size or shape you are bearing in mind only ONE style rule..the pencil has got to fit! Fit is key in every apparel item to look it’s very best but when it comes to wearing a pencil skirt this rule is  the deal breaker between looking chic or cheap. Make sure the number one area that your pencil skirt skims your body to perfection is in the hips and remember you are just one alteration away from taking in the waist to ensure pencil nirvana!

Keep on the lookout (and just between you and I this won’t be hard) for the leather pencil skirt for Fall 2014. It is going to be big-well not big in size because let’s face it a pencil skirt looks perfect on every size and shape but the key to looking fabulous is fit.  Yes beautiful Glamour Girls -FIT in fashion is the secret to every woman looking stylish. There is going to be a lot of leather to wear out there this Fall and vegan or faux  leather can look just as lux as the real thing.

Spring’s Pretty Pencils….

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion tips

I have always been a fan of the pencil skirt. It’s really no surprise that this wardrobe staple has lasted for decades.  Depending on the trend of the day it may be  cut shorter or longer but to have a pencil skirt that fits your proportions  will make any Glamour Girl look longer and leaner.  (Hence the reason why this item has been a wardrobe staple for years). I highly recommend having at least one great fitting pencil in your wardrobe.  If you can’t get the perfect fit “off the rack” might I suggest enlisting a capable tailor. It will be well worth the extra money to have your pencil fit to perfection. 

Start with a basic pencil in white or black.

Have your pencil tailored to fit and add a perfect pair of pumps for a look that is long and lean.
