STYLE ADVICE: Shaping up in chic tailoring

Posted on: June 1, 2016


Sometimes there’s nothing better than a classic, and when it comes to skirts the figure-sculpting, nip-and-tucking tailored/fitted pencil skirt is a true style classic. Apart from putting a wiggle in your walk (you try and stride in a pencil skirt) this piece is the perfect outfit template to dress-up or dress-down. You’ll find some sleek and chic pieces in gorgeous summer hues filtering into shops. L.K. Bennett for example has bold bright high waisted pencil skirts in either coral or bright yellow. Perfect for occasion dressing or more informal lunches at the weekend. The soft duck egg blue of this Roland Mouret piece blends in easily with a denim shirt. Denim after all is not just for weekends and this shirt is in a softer chambray fabric so it’s easily tucked in at the waist or  left out for a more casual feel. Ladylike, smaller structured handbags are the s/s alternative to roomier day totes. Play around with these soft sorbet hues and style with an edgier black patent court and gold chain necklace to toughen things up a bit. Natalie x
