Nothing Short of Chic: Personal Style: Graphite And Graphics


Personal Style: Graphite And Graphics

Reinventing the classic pencil skirt.

Hey! Greetings!! I know it's been a while since I posted, longer than I meant, but I finally have this new post for you - I've also been posting on NSOC En Route and I'm writing a super cool post for it that covers my entire five weeks of mega travel, so make sure you've liked NSOC's Facebook page and are following me on Instagram so that you know when I've finished that and it's live! Anyway, today I'm showing an easy (and, naturally, chic) way of wearing your pencil skirt off-duty without looking like you came straight from the office!

Isn't this t-shirt adorable? It's perfect for dressing down this skirt, but because of the chunky necklace and the structured shape of my shoes, it still looks refined while remaining casual. I think it's important to add the occasional pop of color if your outfit is all neutrals, so I used the bright blue of these shoes to complement the basic grey-and-white combo.

The easiest way to wear your pencil skirt outside of the 9-5 is to add non-office pieces (avoiding button-downs, blazers, and pumps helps!) such as crop tops, brightly-patterned items, heeled sandals, colorful belts, and backpacks. The pencil skirt is a wonderful item and, if you've got a well-tailored one, it can make you feel really confident and beautiful!
