Whether it’s for work or cock­tail hour, the pen­cil skirt should be your next sta­ple item, as Rachel Dulis shows.

Still ex­ud­ing a busi­ness-friendly vibe, a look like this will amp up your con­fi­dence in the board­room while show­ing off your stylish flair. Fin­ish it off with a bit of colour in the heels and hand­bag, and you’re set!

2. Mid­week com­fort

Feel­ing the pres­sure and need to calm things down a lit­tle? Leave the fit­ted pen­cil skirt be­hind and try on one that’s a lit­tle more re­laxed in­stead. Pair it with an over­sized jumper for a flat­ter­ing con­trast to your sil­hou­ette! Ac­ces­sories are op­tional, but we like to keep it min­i­mal with a gold bangle to add some sparkle.

Whether you’re head­ing out for din­ner, drinks or both af­ter work, sim­ply swap the blouse you wore in the morning with some­thing more ca­sual and fun. That’s all you re­ally need as this pen­cil skirt is ver­sa­tile enough for work and play!
