The pencil skirt is an excellent choice for work or play, and the blouse is an equally versatile piece. There are several ways to wear a blouse with a pencil skirt. You can choose a top that fits your figure perfectly and pair it with a skirt in your favorite color.
If you want to wear a cardigan with your pencil skirt, consider pairing it with a fitted button-down shirt or a V-neck pullover. If you’re wearing pants, try pairing them with a classic white button down for a traditional look.
For work, stick with solid colors that don’t distract from your blouse or skirt. Solids are always flattering because they don’t draw attention away from the clothes themselves and make it easier for others to focus on what you’re saying instead of what you’re wearing
