The perfect pencil skirt is a must-have for this summer season. Pencil skirts manage to make women look completely professional, yet still glamorous – and even downright sexy. Be sure to stay away from the sexy look for the office though, ladies!

The best part, pencil skirts are incredibly versatile. Pair a bright pink version with a crisp white button up or a print version with a plain, v-neck tee shirt. Both looks are business casual, but chic. Add a statement necklace for some personality or a blazer to jazz up the professionalism.

Finding the right fit is the hardest part. Some cuts can be too tight in the butt, which makes for an unflattering look. Be sure to check out your backside before purchasing 😉 Here’s a tip from your’s truly, if you have some voluptuous curves, try Ann Taylor Loft’s versions.
