I took it to my tailor to have the waist taken it. However, she insisted on leaving the length as is. She said longer length skirts seem to be on trend this year. I wasn’t too convinced but went with it anyway. Now looking at these photos, I am having second thoughts. I am certainly not used to this length. All my pencil skirts hit above my knees. What do you think about this length? Can a petite woman pull off slightly longer skirts?
What I am wearing:
Skirt: Military Pencil Skirt c/o Apart Style - size 0 (waist taken in)
Top: Express ruffled skirt - size XXS (buy similar - on major sale)
Cardigan: GAP - size XS (buy similar)
Shoes: BR Jacky pump (buy similar or expensive version)
Clutch: Zara basic leather messenger bag
Another item on my Fall wish-list was a duo clutch/cross-body bag. I was thrilled to find a bag that met all my requirements. It is 100% leather, the color is exactly what I was looking for and it fits the bill. The strap can be easily removed to convert from a chic cross-body bag to a sleek clutch. I ordered this clutch from Zara a while back and have been carrying it almost every weekend.
Any suggestions regarding the skirt would be greatly appreciated =)
