A printed pencil skirt is a serious attention grabber. Don’t be afraid to go for a large, eye-popping print – you can offset the bold statement by keeping the rest of your outfit streamlined and neutral. Or, take it over the top and pair your printed skirt with a printed top – there really are no set boundaries.

It’s their curve hugging shape that makes pencil skirts an inherently sexy piece of clothing. They don’t have to scream seduction all the time though. Pair a sturdy suede skirt with laid back basics to put a fun and casual spin on the style.
