With the amount of new readers that are here, I wanted to share one of my older videos about how to change up how you your basic black pencil skirt, with things you probably already own. Far too often, I see people wearing them exactly as expected: in a very corporate/business get up. Pencil skirts are so much more versatile than that. (And even more so if you step away from black!) And no, you don't have to be 5ft-nothing, and a size 0 to wear any of the things I feature in my videos by the way, though if you ARE short, I recommend high-waisted pencil skirts that hit right at the knee, not above, but you can get away with slightly below the knee, but not much. If you're apple-shaped or just built a little thicker in the waist and think that pencil skirts won't flatter you, 1). you're wrong, and 2). you can always opt for some waist-cinching shapewear if you really want to create the illusion of a waspy little waist (but really, you don't have to).
I'll have a new video up tomorrow (spoiler alert: I'm trying on a bunch of designer clothes, some of it more ridiculous than others... "Ebenezer Scrooge" came to mind with one of the tops). See you later!
