We love pencil skirts for their shape-enhancing cut, and with this edit we're going for longer lengths and unconventional fabrics to give the trend a fresh update.

Cut an hourglass shape with pencil skirts

Pencil skirts are one of our favourite ways to highlight our waists and give ourselves that ultra-feminine silhouette, which is why they're a staple of our work and evening wardrobes. From classic tailoring and chic leather pencil skirts to this season's midi lengths, suede finishes and romantic lace detailing, the high waisted pencil skirt will be key for transitioning to evening drinks this season. Go down the classic route by teaming your high waist pencil skirt with a fitted silk blouse for the office, while midi pencil skirts in jersey fabrics will help us nail the athleisure trend.

Enhance your femininity with pencil skirts

Choose a frayed denim style from this selection of pencil skirts and finish with a simple tucked-in t-shirt and metallic sneakers for an effortlessly on-trend casual outfit. Go for a velvet-look pencil skirt with a contrasting zip and complete with peep-toe ankle boots or ankle-strap sandals. Look for midi-lengths and side-slits for a comfy but on-point way to work pencil skirts this season. Stripes, draping, wrap-ties and delicate lace hems are also features to watch out for to keep the look flattering and current.
