Sustainable Pencil Skirt Outfit Inspiration for Summer

The pencil skirt has been a staple in the working women’s closet for as long as women have been allowed in offices. Below are 5 looks oriented around the pencil skirt. The looks are summery enough to be worn in August but professional enough to be worn all year too.

Look #1 

This look has been giving me a hint of Spanish flamenco vibe because of the skirt. So, basically it’s an upgraded pencil skirt.
