Ways to Wear a Colored Pencil Skirt

Teal pencil skirt remix? 
Who’da thunk?  Unlike some
closet basics like a striped tee, a cargo jacket, a denim jacket, or a great
pair of skinny jeans, I never anticipated being able to do a remix post on a
teal pencil skirt.  But, here we are!
When I bought this thing a few years ago I didn’t think it’d
1) be in my closet for this long, 2) actually be worn enough to be featured in
its own post, and 3) be popping up in stores all over years later! 
Yep, that’s right.  I
saw skirts this exact color out recently at Nordstrom’s and Macy’s, as well as
by designers like Calvin Klein.  (See
them below.)  Like I said, who woulda
thunk?  It’s a piece in my closet I don’t
think of often, but am so happy when I use it in an outfit!

If teal isn’t your color, don’t worry!  I pulled out some general tips that can be
used for any colored pencil skirt,
whether yours is teal, purple, green, yellow, maroon, or whatever.  You’ll just have to use a different color
palette, but hopefully you’ll get some more ideas for any colored pencil skirt
you’ve already got in your closet!
1.  Solids with a
I went sorta monochromatic underneath (teal + light
blue)  with stripes.  Even though teal and light blue aren’t
considered neutrals, because they are in the same color family I feel like they
kind of serve as a neutral canvas to feature the striped blazer.
2.  Patterned blouse with
echoing accents.
I paired the skirt with a blouse that has a pattern with a
little color in it.  Then pull any color
out of the pattern to echo in your shoes or other accessories. 
3.  Monochromatic.
I did the whole monochromatic thing again, except that the 3rd
piece, the scarf, is also made of blues. 
This is probably my favorite look out of all of them, though the
previous one is a close second. 
4.  Add a contrasting

Whether your skirt is teal, green, purple, yellow, red, or
whatever, pair it with a white top and then add a completer piece, a necklace,
or shoes in a contrasting color. 

There you go!  That
should spark some new outfits for you!
Option #1 seems incredibly similar to mine.  It comes in regular and petite sizing, as well as a few different colors, and it’s almost fully stocked in a variety of sizes.  The rest are also great, but #1 looked soooo similar to mine that I wanted to point it out (…even though that one is Nordstrom–and on SALE and mine was cheap-o JCPenney haha.)
