Clothing of the Week: Pencil Skirt

3 Aug

When it comes to pencil skirts, the more accessorizing the better. They can look great by themselves, but if you have a plainer pencil skirt, pile on the blouses and the jewelery for a bigger impact.

If you want your pencil skirt to make a statement by itself, get one that’s patterned, pin tucked, piped or has another interesting detail.  Either way, pencil skirts make you look great, and they’re appropriate for any occasion!

Where to Find Pencil Skirts:  Forever 21, H&M, Charlotte Russe

Look #1: If you want a professional look that’s still cute for school, try a tie neck blouse (technically any looser blouse will work)  paired with bangles and flats. A big messy bun would work great with this outfit.  The best pencil skirt for this look is one that’s colored, but not too busy.

Look #2:  For a more fun yet sophisticated look try pairing a blazer with a plain shirt and wedges.  With a layered necklace and a patterned or detailed pencil skirt, your look is ready for school or just hanging out with your friends.

New Trend: Polka Dots

29 Jul

I used to think polka dots were kind of childish, and not something you would wear if you were attending a fancy event.  But after noticing them a lot more when shopping and seeing all the cute things that were polka dotted, my opinion definitely changed

Polka dots, when adorning a loose tank top, peasant blouse, dress, or even shorts, look sophisticated and chic.  Wear polka dots with quiet clothing, so that you don’t take away from the polka dot effect.  As for accessories, chain and teardrop necklaces look good, just remember to keep it simple.

New Trend: Peter Pan Collar

26 Jul

I went to the mall the other day, and among all the other trends I saw, the one that stood out was the Peter Pan Collar.

This new trend gives a whole different meaning to necklines.  Commonly found on blouses, the PPC adds an innocent yet chic touch to any simple shirt.  This collar also makes enough of a statement already, and doesn’t need to be accessorized.  Find it at Forever21, Lulu’s.
