Pencil skirts are the ultimate blank slate. Their sleek shape means they look good in literally any pattern: florals, stripes, animal print, abstract. And they work for just about any occasion. In today's post I styled a floral pencil skirt for work with a blazer and pumps. Then by removing the jacket and switching accessories, the same pencil skirt is instantly ready for a date night. I haven't worn pencil skirts as much lately since I don't work in an office, but I would still consider them a classic staple in my closet. Do you wear pencil skirts to work, for a night look, or both?
