But by the way, does the pencil skirt suit your figure?
Pencil skirt and morphology
The pencil skirt follows your curves, from the waist to your knees. Close to the body or even downright tight, it can accentuate small complexes such as a rounded belly or love handles. How to use the pencil skirt according to your figure.
Wear the pencil skirt if you are curvy
Rest assured: you can wear a pencil skirt if you have curves. Better yet: the pencil skirt is your glamorous asset to enhance your morphology X or 8.
Prefer a lined model cut in a thick material (avoid jersey and fine knit which faithfully hug love handles). Below, opt for sheathing lingerie such as high-waisted panties, a sheath or a slimming jumpsuit to avoid unsightly folds and smooth out your curves.
The high-waisted skirt is made for you if you have generous hips: raising the level of your waist will lengthen your legs and therefore slim your figure.
Choosing the right pencil skirt if you're petite
If you're petite, opt for a "short" model, i.e. just above the knee. A model below the knee will pack your silhouette: you will appear even smaller and wider.
Criteria for finding the right pencil skirt if you are tall
If you're tall and thin, anything goes. A small downside, however, to women with a V-shaped silhouette (wide shoulders and very narrow hips). You can wear the pencil skirt provided you widen the volume of your silhouette at the level of the belly to balance the volumes of your body. For example, peplum tops are perfect for you. Or a shirt/blouse worn loose.
Good to know with the pencil skirt
Avoid thin tights at all costs with the pencil skirt! At least during the day, especially at work. Because shiny nylon tights, especially glamorous tights with the famous straight line at the back of the calf, mean a lot more than work!
How to wear a pencil skirt in winter?
You have several choices for wearing a pencil skirt in the middle of winter. The long pencil skirt can reach mid-calf, which should keep most of your legs warm.
Choose lined, knit or silk-blend skirts for their temperature-regulating properties and wear them with high-heeled boots. At the top, bet on layering with a large wool coat, a fleece wool vest that you can both remove when you arrive at the office without messing up your hair to make way for a pretty thin blouse in a noble material such as silk, satin or muslin.
In the middle of the polar cold, adopt the tights opaque black special winter fleece to save your legs from paralysis. In addition, they lengthen and shape the leg for an ultra-feminine slimming effect.
