Adulting in a pencil skirt

The pencil skirt has been a wardrobe staple since forever – I’ve personally been a fan since about age 13, when I was also hooked onto Ally McBeal. And the more heartbroken Ally got, the higher her hemlines went, and so, naturally, mine did too. I had pencil skirt suits for my Birthday, Christmas, Easter and any other occasion all through that year and the next, which were probably not the best idea for a newly minted teen – my mum was a huge advocate for letting us make our own fashion faux pas. Thankfully, I got over the phase and moved on to other stuff.

Now that I’m an adult, and I actually have reason to wear them on and off, I’m not so keen on looking like a 70s secretary – or a 90s Ally when I do, which got me thinking about how to make things more interesting. Here I go!

  1. Embrace colour!

2. Pick a pattern
