Generally speaking, we all know that the sweet pencil skirt, once known mainly for the corporate setting has evolved tremendously over the decades. Today, it comes in an array of styles – from lace to leather, bold prints, cuts, colors and textures…without a doubt, it’s much more fun, sportier, edgier and sexier these days.
I came across this green pencil high waisted skirt with a flirty little front slit when I was accidentally on ASOS (as if going on ASOS was ever an accident). The wet-look fabric slightly resembles leather from afar but it’s a lightweight polyester material that stretches. And ladies, I know you agree clothes that stretches are pretty darn amazing! When it comes to form fitting skirts, I normally have to get the waist taken in so I really appreciate that this skirt fits true to size while the material stretches comfortably in the hips and legs… and believe me when I say this skirt is like the push-up bra for your booty. :)
For the price, it’s very well made and is extremely comfortable that I ordered both the black and green!
The options for styling a pencil skirt is no longer restricted to it’s once one-and-only counterpart, the button up shirt. I love juxtaposing the polished silhouette with different looks such as a crop sweater, a fitted peplum, a tank and leather vest or just a loose t-shirt.
Via my instagram, I called these looks (left to right) “Sassy, Classy, Edgy and Easy Breezy.” I was in a sassy mood so I went with look #1. :)
Which look is your favorite?
Hello, are you willing to sell these heels? I am looking for them for a holiday party. Willing to pay well for them. Let me know! Thanks!
Hello! Would you be willing to sell your green Steve Madden pumps? I am looking for them for a holiday party and am willing to pay well for them. Let me know! Thanks!
Such a stunning look. Excuse my french but your ass looks incredible!
Soo, incredibly sexy! I had no idea that skirt would be that comfortable, I think I may have to get it now. I love how you showed different ways to pair it, great idea!
I just can’t get over what a hot babe you are either!
I love that skirt — what a great color!
I would totally rock ALL of these looks! My fav is the sassy look though. This sweater is FAB! I love crop tops – even though they’re probably not considered age-appropriate for me anymore. Lol. But who cares, come spring, I plan to make them a part of my weekend wardrobe. ;)
I love the sassy, but I also love the edgy. The skirt is definitely amazing, and I love the length! I also love the slit in the front. And yes, I have once or twice accidentally found myself on Asos, too. I’ve accidentally ordered a few things, too. Haha! :) Love ya!
You look incredible in this color green and this fit is amazing on you! I love the way you styled it with the fuzzy black top! xx Pip
You look so elegant dear :)
And I love the shoes, I’ve already looked at them to many times thinking of whether to buy/not to buy. They’re too gorgeous in the emerald color!
Such a doll with the bun and the bangs =)
Ha ha i thought all of my finds are accidental as my excuse to go buy more. I love love the color and you look bangin’ KTR.
You look incredible in this pencil skirt, seriously so gorgeous and chic!
I love how you’ve styled this skirt in all its iterations- so well done, and very cool. Not just for the office, right?
Happy Thursday, doll!
That skirt is perfection paired with that soft pink lip!

You look so glamorous.
Oh, I am so glad to know I’m not the only one who “accidentally” finds herself on Asos, lol! This skirt is a beauty – it definitely emphasises some of your best features and I love that it’s high enough to make a cropped sweater look classy! I can’t wait to see your three other looks with it make their way onto the blog :)
You look so good, babe!! Pencil skirts are definitely like a push up bra for booty.:D But I think you don’t need that, you look absolutely phenomenal!
Definitely following via Bloglovin and Twitter.;)
I’m glad you picked the sassy look, it’s my fave! Love the fuzzy cropped top and girl, you have amazing curves in that skirt!
So cool, I love this look! ?

Gosh girl you look stunning and adorableee!!, I love this outfit, everything looks perfect!
You look stunning in green! The A line skirt is probably the best cut for hippy girls like us :)
Oh my goodness, this is stunning! I love your four looks but my favorite one is the one you wore and the casual t shirt. That skirt is something to die for and I love how you can pull it off so effortlessly. Love those shoes too!
This is stunning! I love the skirt and how you styled it with the cropped sweater and those pumps are perfection!
P.P.S. This is such a pretty shot of you: https://ktrstyle.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/thegreenpencil5.jpg because I just love your smile! :)
Gorgeous per usual! And Nate is getting increasingly better with the camera, I’m so proud of him! Now, this skirt… it’s so lovely and I agree with you completely; I’m very adamant for pencil skirts getting love out of the office. I think the pencil skirt, when worn right, is so flattering and sexy, and you pull it off so well! The little front slit in the front is perfect and I really like the emerald green shade. I can’t wait to see you wear it with the other looks!
P.S. Please talk me out of wanting/needing a pair of those SM bow heels! ;)
