Fashion Rules: Pencil Skirt

I love pencil skirts. I find them so flattering and they give an understated sexiness to an outfit.

Christian Dior introduced the classic modern pencil skirt in the late 1940s. It is a slim-fitting skirt with a straight, narrow cut. Generally the hem falls to, or just below, the knee and is tailored for a close fit. It is named for its shape: long and slim like a pencil.

Here are some fabulous pencil skirts from Express. I wore the first one pictured below on New Years Eve – it looked great and was so comfortable. They have something similar in white now for the spring/summer.

In the evening, I would pair a pencil skirt with a cute crop top or a fitted tank top. For a day look, I would pair it with a fitted blouse or turtle neck.

Bring On Spring, Bring On The Dresses

It’s been a long winter Ottawa.

I’m so over snow and the -34 temperatures.

But I am beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel. The snow is melting, days are getting longer and the temperatures are getting warmer.

So I say – bring on Spring and bring on the Spring dresses like these latest arrivals from Banana Republic.

Love this structured, crew neck, sleeveless, lightweight tweed dress. I especially like the details at the waist, because it gives the illusion of an hour glass figure.

This dress can be dressed up with pair of heels and clutch or dressed down with a pair of cool sandals. Love the pattern and it also has side pockets. Love side pockets!

Brushstroke Sheath Dress – can’t go wrong with black and white. This would look cute paired with a cardigan or blazer.
