I really feel that a black pencil skirt is the most important wardrobe staple that any woman can have. I used to keep mine caged up strictly for office wear, but with the dawn of the crop top and how nicely they go together I’ve embraced it for both other occasions. An awesome and somewhat unexpected way to wear a black pencil skirt is with a white tee and a jean jacket. You can’t get more basic than that! This outfit is also a great option to pack when you’re travelling since all of the pieces mix well with anything. A pair of black boots and a funky clutch keeps it out of the office category and adds an edgy touch.
The joy of a super basic outfit like this one is that you can show your personality with jewelry and makeup. I love this jewel studded statement necklace from Rocksbox for it’s rainbow of pale pink, coral, green and blue stones, and the bracelet to match with its hints of blue. I’m sporting nail polish and lipstick in two different colors of bright pink, because more mismatching = more fun! And since they know me so well, the gals at Rocksbox sent along the most dainty little pair of studs so the rest of these pieces could be front and center. Love them!

I was trying to think of some other fun ways to wear this skirt – maybe over a pair of crazy leggings with booties and a turtle neck? No? Why not! 😉
