A simple, classic pencil dress is a style staple for your workwear wardrobe. I’m guaranteed to pull a fitted pencil dress out of my wardrobe on mornings when I know I have a busy day ahead and don’t have time to worry about what to wear. I never know if my plans are going to change, such as a last minute dinner in the evening with clients, so I like to be prepared for the unexpected.
Pencil dresses effortlessly take you from day to night and require very little thought when it comes to styling. Just pair with heels and instantly look classy and stylish. I like to accessorise mine with a statement earring, like the gold pair I have on in this shoot. The trick is to not overdo it with accessories because although the dress is simple, it still makes a statement.
I believe an outfit can say a thousands words as you walk into a room. I like to think this outfit shows off my confidence, class and a bit of sass too! As I’ve said before, as this is a piece of clothing you will be wearing year after year, always always invest a bit more money into it than you would other fast fashion pieces. If you work out the cost per wear over the years, it really does make sense.
