Nine to Five Chic in a Suede Pencil Skirt

If you’re confined to the “cube life” you might as well look damn good while you’re in there. It’s easy to get into the black on black “rut” during the work week. But that doesn’t mean it has to be boring (as seen here). Stock up on basics with a twist, like this black pencil skirt, and you’ll thank me later. Here is how to look nine to five chic, in a killer black ensemble.

Mixing texture goes a long way. If you’re sold on monochromatic looks this is one of the easiest ways to shake up your style. In the featured look I paired a faux suede pencil skirt with a ribbed fitted top. The contrasting fabrics stimulate the eye more than matching fabrics.

It’s all about the angle. Whether you’re taking photos and following the “rule of thirds,” or you’re piecing together a good looking outfit, the importance of angles prevails! Think about it, a diagonal line is a lot more interesting than a straight line. I first dressed this skirt with a turtleneck. After looking in the mirror I decided it did nothing for the asymmetrical hemline. Just like that, a plunging neckline nicely compliments the rim of the skirt. The same applies with regards to the cutout high heels.
