The Pencil Skirt

Happy Monday, Fashionistas! Let’s kick off Monday by talking about my most favorite item in my closet: the pencil skirt! How did this wonderful creation start and evolve? Well, French designer Christian Dior introduced the pencil skirt back in the late 1940s, using the term H-line to describe its shape. It quickly became popular, particularly for office wear.

This success was due to women's desire for new fashions during World War II, coupled with the austere economic climate, when fabrics were expensive and full-skirted garments were seen as wasteful. In the 1980’s, it again became popular for business women as part of the "power suit" style of dressing, and has remained a popular mainstream fashion choice ever since.

The pencil skirt is such a classic fashion piece and a must-have in any woman's wardrobe. At first glance, it looks hectic to maneuver by its narrow shape, but it is effortless and downright feminine because of its small yet super significant design features like, pleats and back slits. Any woman who wears a pencil skirt on Monday will start her work week off on the right foot-guaranteed! (Maybe even get a promotion!)
