By  | 

 

Who thinks that pencil skirts is only for working females? Or that they emphasized the butt and thighs, and hence, should be avoided unless you have nice legs?

It is actually quite versatile – and with the right accessories, styling and prints; you can easily transform it from a plain formal work look into something more chic and fun

Below-the-knees length

Try a crop top to balance out the extra-long length. Tucking in will always create a nicer silhouette, creates a trimmer looking waist and will definitely elongate your legs. This style would be good for someone with a not too-short torso. Stick to similar colours for your top and skirt if you’re worried about shortening your upper body and looking stumpy
