How to…work a pencil skirt from office to evening

I love a change of outfits as much as the next girl, but when it comes to switching up your day look to your evening look with the least amount of effort possible, I’m all over that like a cheap suit.

So, if you’ve opted for a pencil skirt as your office staple this fall, and need to head out on the town after your 9 to 5, all you need is to switch up your heels and your clutch and you have the whole late night vibe licked.

My fave pencil skirt du jour has got to be this silver one from Club Monaco. I loved pairing grey and white over the summer and can’t quite kick the habit. Add a pop of yellow and you have a fresh office appropriate look going on.

It’s easy to rock a silk shirt by day – this Sandro one with silver epaulettes has been a work horse in my wardrobe this summer. For an on trend way to work your daytime blazer through to the evening simply chuck it over your shoulders in the current fashion editor ‘I’m so busy I don’t even have time to put my coat on whilst dashing from fashion show to cocktail party’ vibe, and you are on to something.
