I finally got around to wearing this black pencil skirt for this challenge. A black pencil skirt is definitely a wardrobe basic and when working in a corporate environment, it’s a must! You can’t help but feel like a diva professional in it and if I could last all day at work in stilletto heels, you couldn’t tell me anything!
The skirt itself is high waisted and I never tucked any of my tops in because it would bring more attention to my midsection. But wearing a black cami along with the long cardigan didn’t give me that issue and you can’t even tell I’m wearing a cami and a skirt unless you’re up close. The black proved to be slimming and the length of the cardi gave more attention to my curves than the roundess in the middle. It also gave my casual cardi a more professional look, because I usually wear it over a white or black tee shirt and my trousers on Friday’s to work (unfortunately we don’t have casual Fridays so I kinda make up my own version!). This cardigan is my favorite and I’m excited to find a new (and more professional way) to wear it!
