Denim Pencil Skirt
"Look Casual and Sexy in a Denim Pencil Skirt"
A denim pencil skirt is versatile and looks much more casual compared to black pencil skirts. It's perfect for everyday day wear, informal office settings and transits into evening just perfectly.
It helps you create a sexy and casual outfit without looking like you're trying too hard. And you just gotta love the juxtaposition it makes with a tailored white dress shirt. But of course, it depends on how you wear it - so pay close attention to my fashion advice here on this page if you want to know how to wear a pencil skirt stylishly without looking frumpy.
How to Select a Denim Pencil Skirt
Invest in versatility
An exception is if you want curves, of course! So if you have a slim hips or just wish to accentuate your curves, then you should buy to a pencil skirt with texture and interest on the sides of your hips and thighs. Examples are creases, faded wash and visible seam stitches - they're great for creating the illusion of a curvy hourglass body shape.
If you have full hips and/or thighs
Opt for denim skirts with regular or high waist (not low) to control the flab and draw the eye upwards and preferably without too many pockets to help slim down your bottom half. No pockets are ideal for this type of trouble-spot.
Focus on solid denim washes to avoid highlighting any bumps.
The right shape is also crucial - we both know that a pencil skirt has a tapered hem but for your figure it should taper just a bit. Nothing too pegged to
avoid looking like a light bulb!
If you have a round tummy
I suggest Not Your Daughter's Jeans which are known as Tummy Tuck jeans with hidden panels that flatten your stomach and lift your butt. All thanks to the 4% Lycra that gives a better hold and comfort than regular denim.
Also, wide waistbands (they help tuck in large parts of your tummy) and
fuss-free waistbands on the skirt look best on you. Or you could always resort to Spanx :-)
Select the best length
A length that flatters all heights and body figures end just above or right at your knee. However if you have an Apple body shape then opt for at the knee or right below to help balance out your top-heavy body figure. If you're a petite Apple, make sure the skirt sits snugly on your hips to avoid looking boxy.
