Plus Size Pencil Skirt: OOTD

Plus Size Pencil Skirt Thrift Store Cassie Thrift Store ClassicOh, the Pencil skirt… I hear from people of all shapes and sizes that the pencil skirt just doesn’t work for them. Well, I think you would be surprised if you try one on! I never thought I would love it either, but this plus sized girl has a favorite skirt and it’s not the maxi! It’s the pencil skirt!! When you are looking for a plus size pencil skirt I have some suggestions on what to look for — things that will make them more fun to wear:)

Comfort

One thing I hear often about pencil skirts is that they are uncomfortable! Well, that can be true. But, my favorite pencil skirts have a yoga waistband… that means this skirt is like wearing yoga pants, but it’s a skirt. how amazing is that???

Bumpy Bellies

We are going to get a little real here — I have women of all sizes and shapes come into my boutique and say, I don’t like how the pencil skirt looks on my belly… that’s fine — we are not all ready to show off our visible belly outline (VBO). There are a few things that you can do to enjoy the pencil skirt without the VBO. First — in the outfit I am wearing for this post I have on an a-line top! This top flows and covers that VBO that would most definitely be showing if I tucked a shirt into my pencil skirt! Second, layers help so much in hiding lumps and bumps you don’t want to show off in your outfit.

What shoes do you wear with a pencil skirt?? Well, Converse happen to be a personal favorite for dressing it down with a graphic tee. Booties, sandals, flat and even flip flops all work too!!

 

Pencil skirts can be your friend.. .no matter your size or shape! Try one on for size:)

    I cannot get over how cute you look! I also love this style of pencil skirt. I’ve not tried it with that style of top yet, though. I’m excited to give it a go! I’m yet to pair my converse with mine, I def need to try that. Ps, in case it wasn’t clear, you look amazeballs!

    Oh I’m so glad I stopped and read this post! So, I’ve been getting into sewing lately and actually got gifted a pencil skirt pattern and I’ve been wanting to try it, but worried about not liking it, and it not being cute… because I haven’t seen many plus size examples, but so cute! And the idea that I can pair it with my converse and tees… I think it is a must! Thank you!
