Can I wear a pencil skirt?

Anyone can wear a pencil skirt.  A sleek silhouette it is universally flattering and is a piece that should form part of any capsule wardrobe.  And it just so happens that this season, fashion is infatuated with them.  Prada and Balenciaga sent models down the runway in pencil skirts and tweed was a massive style statement this season.

Just look at JLo's Instagram post from earlier this week.  We love how she's wearing her pencil skirt.  A designer belt to showcase her waist and the monochrome tweed couldn't be stronger.  That woman knows how to dress her body shape!

The trick is to wear the pencil skirt well.  A properly fitted skirt, it should skim the body due to its straight, narrow cut.  It should fit neatly at the waist, continue down the hips and end just around the knee. 

But what if you're not standard, model proportions? What if a size 12 is too tight and a 14 is 'swishing around' your hips?  We often get asked "can pear shaped women wear a pencil skirt?"  The answer is yes!  But because of the nature of the pencil skirt, it's a style that's difficult to pull off when buying Off The Peg.  You want to avoid a too large skirt that's baggy or a too small skirt that's clinging in all the wrong places. 

Discover the pleasure of a made to measure Pencil Skirt

We honestly believe that the pencil skirt is a stunning style on any woman, no matter what shape or size.  Fitted perfectly, it's a skirt that will skim your curves in all the right places to make you feel fabulous.

Having a skirt made by Distinctively Me will provide you with a wardrobe must-have that you can team with a blazer for workwear, pair with a cami for the evening and wear with a white t-shirt, biker jacket and pumps for the weekend.

Personalise your look

This is a style that makes any woman look longer and leaner.   A chic, glamourous pencil skirt will never go out of style. 

A few options to show how we really can create a pencil skirt to suit your style.  We've worked on the following options for customers who've wanted to customise their look.  Have you thought about...

  • Waistband with belt loops or no waistband at all? Founder Jill White suits a style that has no obvious waistband, however, we're loving Jennifer Lopez in her pencil skirt with a designer belt.

  • A stunning black in a fine wool would look amazing but perhaps you want a more classic, tweed style with a raw-edged hem. We love how Amal Clooney has styled her classic Chanel look here but we equally love how a classic look can be made much more edgy.

  • Ramp things up a little and opt for a leather pencil skirt. Our leather truly is butter soft and is beautiful to wear.

  • Not sure you want your pencil skirt to sit on the knee? We can create a longer line look or perhaps something shorter. We will work to your requirements so that your skirt works for you.

So if you're looking to add a wardrobe classic to your capsule collection this season, book a free consultation and we can talk you through the options.
