How to Style a Pencil Skirt for Fall
Pencil skirts have always held a soft in my heart. They remind me of my Grandmother who was a firm believer that ladies should always wear pencil skirts, she literally had every color under the sun. Anytime I wear a pencil skirt I think of her and smile.
Over the years I've accumulated my fair share of pencil skirts--everything from plaid prints, to feminine lace and of course classics in black, grey and navy. But this season, I am loving one particular style: shimmery knits also known as lurex.
What I love about lurex is the ability to wear it day-to-night, a definite fashion perk during the busy holiday season. I purchased this navy Zaira skirt from the new Eva Mendes collection with New York & Company and love everything about it: the fit, the comfort and of course the slit detail.
For this post I wanted to share a daytime look that is equally cozy as it is chic. I layered an Eva Mendes Cable Knit sweater over my pencil skirt to cancel out the "sexy" factor that is usually associated with pencil skirts. I then incorporated pops of oxblood with my boots and bag creating a patriotic Fall palette.
And guess what? This Eva Mendes skirt and sweater are both on sale at NY & Company!
