I know, I know……if you have wider hips…..you’re afraid of pencil skirts, right? Well I found the best grey pencil skirt for a pear shape body…..and it’s a steal! Last weekend, I was up visiting my family and had a little (gasp) time to myself. I headed to the mall to do a little browsing, and asked you guys what type of pieces you were interested in seeing on the blog. The one request I got a TON of? Casual work outfits. As a teacher, I certainly don’t wear heels (hello sore feet) or suits to work…..but I do try to dress professionally.
The key to business casual outfits that aren’t boring? Separates that you can mix and match. I snagged this grey pencil skirt over the summer (and it’s now available for a STEAL in a darker grey shade). It’s been perfect with sweaters and blouses…..and is a great work staple piece.
Grey Pencil Skirt: The Best Pencil Skirt for a Pear Shape Body
This pencil skirt was a part of my Trunk Club shipment last month. I’m not going to lie, when I saw a pencil skirt was on the way…..I wasn’t THAT excited. Historically, pencil skirts fit me horribly. They’re too tight on the hips and too big in the waist. But this one? Is a pear shaped girl’s DREAM. It fits beautifully, has a little stretch and is machine washable (who wants to spend a million dollars on dry cleaning?!?). While the light grey is sold out, it’s now available in a darker grey, and I just ordered it. It’s THAT good (plus it’s under $40 and you can’t beat that)!
