Hello fam. Well, I hope y’all are doing fine as I am, can’t complain. We (Kenyans) are nearing the elections, just a week away, and personally, I can’t wait to be done already. Everywhere and everything is about the elections, like people are not doing anything else! But I hope we get past it PEACEFULLY because it is all we need as a nation. I won’t talk much about it because I’m done with it like yesterday. Focusing on matters fashion and style, today I bring about this pencil midi skirt that I wore recently.

Pencil skirts are indisputably a timeless staple that every woman should have in her styling arsenal. After years of seeing what feels like millions of skater skirts, mini skirts, and maxi skirts, the midi was a pleasant surprise. A midi skirt typically hits right below the knee, sometimes a little bit longer. You could be mistaken for thinking the pencil midi-skirt trend is exclusively reserved for those lucky ladies who possess legs for days, but no, the ladylike staple actually flatters every shape. You simply need to choose a cut that suits you and style it accordingly. Midi skirts can be a little difficult to wear, especially if you haven’t found yours yet. I’m short, so I feel like I can’t wear a midi skirt unless it hits right below the knee and I pair it with heels – but that’s just me! I simply styled mine with a peplum top because I like how flattering it makes the midi skirt look.

For the ladies who just can’t decide between miniskirts and maxi skirts like me, trust me I know how it is; miniskirts are too short while maxi’s are too long, a pencil midi skirt might just be the piece you need to get your wardrobe right. Pencil midi skirts are perfect because they’re universally flattering and they can be worn all year round and they can be worn with every other top or shirt, be it long/short sleeves chifons, cotton shirt or even sweatshirts! Try today and flaunt your curves.
