The Classic Pencil Skirt with a Modern Twist

Black and white is a timeless combination that will never date. Another classic fashion piece is the pencil skirt and it happens to be one of my favorites. With this look, I wanted to try something different and style the classic pencil skirt with a modern twist. The asymmetrical shape and the orange line on the side spice up the basic black skirt in a whole new way. Not only it’s modern but the high wasted cut makes you appear taller. With high waisted pencil skirts, heels are a must- they give you that lady like edge and also slim your overall silhouette. I paired the skirt with my backless white top that I wore for a different look here. This is one of my favorite looks, it’s clean, minimal but yet glamorous. What do you think?

  1. Black and white has always been my favorite color combo. I love this classic and classy pencil skirt outfit and then you turned around and bam! What a lovely open back with tie detail. This is a great mix of subdued sexiness and classic elegance. Can we also talk about that super chic bag?! Love it.

  2. Oh my god girl that top is so sexy. I love how you styled that pencil skirt. And you’re so right. It’s absolutely timeless! It will never go out of style just like black and white

  3. You actually succeed in taking something as classic as a pencil skirt and a white top and create something so contemporary and modern, yet stylish and elegant with such ease and I adore that quality in your styling. You could basically pull anything off and here you reinvented a classic look for sure!

  4. Girl, I literally adore your sense of style and I love timeless pieces. You can’t go wrong with the little black dress, as well as with a classic pencil skirt. Those pieces are so class and elegant. And the combination of black and white works every time. But I appreciate a smart twist. And that backless blouse paired with this skirt looks absolutely lovely.

  7. Definitely see how you are making this more modern! I love the shape and style of the classic pencil skirt, but oh my gosh when I saw this skirt I knew i just had to have it! It’s still so sophisticated because of the classic silhouette, but it has some flare because of the asymmetrical cut and slit on the other side. And don’t think i didn’t catch that orange stripe coming down too. It’s such a gorgeous piece to have in your wardrobe. Something I definitely need in mines now!

  9. This is such a chic and classy look with a bit of sexiness with the open back. I agree that a pencil skirt is a must have in any woman’s closet and I love that this one has a side slit with some color. The entire outfit is elegant and I like the edgy bag for contrast. Well styled my dear! xoxo, Christine
