The pencil skirt remains an elegant classic but you can still stand out from the crowd in this old-school favourite, especially if you choose a version with a modern twist—like a fun and flirty frilled hemline.

I’ve chosen this gorgeous floral Bouquet Skirt from one of my favourite Wintergarden stores, Sheike, as my example to show you three different ways you can wear this skirt but mixing up with you team it with—with a focus on accessories and outerwear for winter.

Made from a non-stretch polyester spandex blend, the Bouquet Skirt is fitted but still comfortable for wearing all day. It features a bold large floral print and it’s frilled hemline sits just above knee-length.

An incredibly versatile piece to have in your wardrobe; this kind of fit and flare skirt can be paired with a blouse or button up shirt and a pair of black or nude pumps for a day in the office; a t-shirt or top, bomber jacket and clutch for a dinner and drinks or layer it up with a wool-blend coat to fend off those cold winter days.
