Not only slim women can wear a pencil skirt. Figure shapes like triangle, inverted triangle, rectangle, and hourglass can look good in a pencil skirt. Petite women should only wear the comfortable length of a pencil skirt. Here’s a guide on how a petite woman can look good while wearing a pencil skirt.
Remember that a short woman should wear a pencil skirt anywhere a bit above, knee-length or a bit below the knee. If you are petite and have slim legs, you can look good in a very short skirt. Petite women can also look larger and shorter in miniskirts if they have bigger legs.
Styling the Pencil Skirt According to Figure Type
Hourglass-Shaped Figure: Choose a pencil skirt that perfectly fits your hips. You can wear a V-neckline top that is tucked within the waist. Disguise figure flaws using a jacket or empire-waist top over the pencil skirt.
Rectangle-Shaped Figure: belt the pencil skirt with a narrow belt or wear a wrap top to get a more-defined waist look.
Triangle-Shaped Figure: Wear a V-neck top or top with ruffles to add bulk and balance your hips. This will help you appear closer to an hourglass shape.
Inverted-Triangle-Shaped Figure: Pegged your pencil skirts to make the hips more proportionate. This will highlight your hips.
