9-5 Chic

Westwood, CA


Seamlessly transition from August to early fall with the perfect pencil skirt. With a feminine, fitted silhouette, this classic piece offers a world of versatility.  

There are really no rules for topping off a pencil skirt.  Today I went with a crocheted tank and cropped jacket to pull off a polished office look. For a chillier fall temps, try playing up the contrast between the streamlined bottom by pairing it with a slouchy sweater or chunky knit top. Check out this older post to get some more ideas! Or for a more casual look, try wearing it with a vintage tee and statement necklace.

I love this particular design from Ruche because the stripes and slit in the back help to set it apart from my more stereotypical office skirts.   Oh and the best part?  It’s on sale right now.
