A pencil skirt is a stylish part of a woman's wardrobe that can be paired with a variety of different tops and accessories to create a stunning outfit. Choose a top that flatters your frame when looking for a shirt to wear with your pencil skirt.

Petite Frame

If you have a small waistline, dress yourself in a shirt that hugs your waist. Pair your pencil skirt with a button-up blouse that you can easily tuck into the skirt. You can also wear form-fitting sleeveless shirts or snug sweaters tucked into the skirt.

Medium Frame

If you're a medium build, wear your pencil skirt with a solid-coloured undershirt and a vest jacket. You can also wear a button-up blouse left untucked. Avoid wearing shirts that are too loose around the waist, as this will hide your natural curves and take away from your skirt.

Full Frame

If you have a full frame, wear your pencil skirt with a solid-coloured undershirt and a jacket that is two or three inches longer than the widest part of your torso. Women with fuller frames should also avoid wearing tops that are too loose, as this will detract from natural curves and make the body appear larger than it is.

Tips

When choosing a pencil skirt, find one that is slim fitting but not too tight. The skirt should not fall more than three inches below the knee and should not be worn above the knee. Darker colours have a slimming effect and work well with most styles. For formal occasions, wear form-fitting tops made of satin, brocade or silk. For casual and flirty events, consider wearing your skirt with animal print tops or shirts with ruffles. If you choose to wear an oversized top, wrap a belt or scarf around your waist to define the waist.
