Without a doubt, a pencil skirt redefines smartness. It is one of the best outfits a girl can wear on any occasion. A pencil skirt stitched out of cotton can be worn at office while the one stitched out of denim can be worn at a party. Hence, you can wear it at innumerable occasions and make heads turn back! But, it is very important to wear an appropriate footwear that complements your skirt. You may get confused as to what would suit your attire the best. So, here's a gallery of footwear you can choose to grab attention!
If you are looking for a typical formal footwear, business boots are the way out. The "not-so-pointed" look at the front and the medium heighted heels shall add to the classic look they normally provide. Such shoes go really well with a cotton pencil skirt. These shoes enhance the calves very well and will make you look like a real corporate lady. Make sure you polish them every single time you plan to wear them. Black usually looks rich and thus is most preferred. But, you can also go for light brown or off white depending upon the color of your skirt and top.
Kitten heels are a fashion today. Not only because they look awesome, but also because they provide you with great comfort. These shoes can be worn with formal skirts as well as funky cotton or denim pencil skirts. They come in a wide range of bright colors including green, red, yellow and pink. They can be termed as real feminine stuff and need to be carried really well to complement the attire. These are pointed at the front and have small but slender heels. They are best suited on girls having thin feet. They are sure to give you that classy look!
Pencil heels are meant to give you that most desired look. They are a perfect pair of shoes to wear on satin and silk pencil skirts. They are a little difficult to carry as the heels are pretty pointed at the bottom and hence may make you feel uncomfortable at times. But, you can practice wearing them once or twice and carry them off well then. As they have long heels, they will make you look tall. So, if you already are a heighted girl, choose to wear them wisely. You can choose shoes with shorter pencil heels. Try out vibrant colors and get that beautiful look.
Calf boots are another pair of perfect footwear to wear on cotton pencil skirts. You can wear them when you need to go out on business meetings. They provide you with a very comfortable cushioning from inside and hence make walking a pleasant experience. They come with a long zipper that adds to the comfort and the look. More importantly, they cover your legs till the calves and give them a well toned look. It is always better to choose light colors when it comes to calf boots irrespective of what the color of your skirt is. Again, black is an exception to it.
Among all the footwear in the world, flats are the most comfortable ones! You can not only wear them on pencil skirts, but on every other attire you choose. Flats are usually made out of pure leather which is the key factor providing the best comfort to your feet. They also come in a variety of colors. They will make you look even classier when paired with denim pencil skirts. A little advice to all the girls would be to make sure you have a pedicure done before wearing flats as they tend to expose maximum portion of the feet just leaving the nails.
Loafers are typically meant for corporate use. They can be best suited on cotton and polyester pencil skirts. To get that corporate look, choose black or badge colored loafers. They come with a buckle and a thin belt near the ankle. Usually, they do not have long heels and even if they do, the heels have a flat bottom to make t easier to walk. You may find these loafers made out of a variety of materials, starting from leather to fabrics like cotton. For special occasions, you may wear velvet loafers. Wearing a blazer or a full sleeved white shirt shall complete the look.
Platforms are heels which come with a flat bottom. At times, pointed heels may give you cramps in the upper half portion of your calves. Shoes and sandals that typically come with a flat bottom look very good on polyester pencil skirts. They don't go with denim skirts and thus that should be avoided. They give an elegant look and hence can be worn with evening gowns as well. You may experiment with colors but my suggestion would be to go for black or white. They come with a thin belt at times above the ankle which adds to the elegance.
Typical and traditional sandals have their own magic. They are a good match on pencil skirts as well as traditional and ethnic wear. Choose sandals that have heels which are minimum 2 inches long so that they enhance your height. Heels also make your legs appear thinner. Sandals also come in an array of colors. Choose colors like golden, bronze or brown so that they give you a formal as well as a stylish look. These usually cover maximum portion of your feet and leave the nails open. Also, they come with a belt and a buckle which can be adjusted according to the size of your ankle.
Stilettos are an evergreen trend. Make sure you choose heeled stilettos to make your legs look long. They will give your legs an awesome look and would complement your pencil skirt really well. Wear them on satin, cotton and denim skirts and make yourself the star of the evening! Stilettos and pencil skirts has always been a rich combination. Experiment with light and bright colors and fetch a lot of compliments. A fact about stilettos which many of the girls don't know is that the long thread that goes round the leg is detachable and hence can be changed!
I hope you have liked the suggestions given above. I would advice you to actually see yourself in the mirror when you pair any footwear with your pencil skirt so that you get to see the complete look. So, try them out, I'm sure you'll look stunning!
