The iconic pencil skirt is one of my all-time favorites. It’s sleek shape slims the hips and has been a closet classic since it was first introduced by Christian Dior in 1954. I’ve owned several over the years (they never go out of style) but the ones I reach for most often have stretch. Stiff ones with waistbands that bind or dig when I sit down, have no place in my wardrobe.
At $29.95 this skirt is an amazing value. The possibilities are endless for this pencil skirt! I’ll be wearing it with tights and knee boots, bare legs and tee shirt in the summer, stockings and heels, for dinner out, etc etc.
Today I’ve styled it with the new V-Neck Fit and Flare from Covered Perfectly. It has the same slimming princess seaming as the Allyson Fit and Flare. It flares over your hips, creating a slight peplum effect which hides any muffin top action. And while we’re on the subject of muffin tops…I get many comments saying I don’t have one. Ha! Yes, I do and it shows if I wear the wrong thing.Waistbands that are too tight and tops that are too clingy are the perfect recipe for a muffin top so I avoid them.
I changed to a longer necklace for this look because the proportion looks better with pants. For reference, I am 5’4″ and wearing a medium. Could I squeeze into a small? Sure, but then my bulges would show which is never a good look, in my humble opinion:)
