When you have such a bold skirt, you need neutrals or solids to keep you from looking “busy.” For this outfit, we have the perfect kitten-heeled slingback and my favorite Rebecca Minkoff Mini-MAB. Add a simple black onyx stud and you have all the basics needed to wear with this multi-colored, leopard-printed pencil skirt.
Also, I don’t know why everyone in this town insists on wearing a cami under their cardigans. If it fits properly, I see no reason why you can’t go without. And if you need a little extra something to pull it together, grab a piece of black ribbon and make yourself a belt.
The white button-front shirt is a classic. And it is the perfect match for this pencil skirt. A tip for buying a button down? Buy one size up and then have it tailored down to fit you perfectly. This will give you the perfect, tailored look without gapes or puckers.
Sometimes, you just want to wear flats. Sadly, most flat shoes are truly boring. But these open-toe, bow flats are just chic enough. Pair them with a simple, skinny belt, a coordinating handbag and some silver pyramid studs for a well-balance accessory pool.
Meeting the parents (or any family member for that matter) is stressful. The last thing you need to be worried about is what you’re wearing. Here, the pencil skirt and funky heels provide personality while the cut-out silk tee says, “I’m understated but interesting.” Add a fun dangle earring in a coordinating shade of purple to pull it all together and you’ll know that whatever else happens, at least you look good.
