For those times when you want to show some curves, we have the perfect dress for you, which is the pencil dress. Descending from the pencil skirt, the dress has the same tight figure which allows your silhouette to show and draws all the attention to it. There are a lot of ways to style it and a lot of places to wear a pencil dress and we guarantee that you’ll steal the show!
Usually, the pencil dress is made of a stretchy material, most probably lycra, which allows you to move around and feel comfortable at the same time. This is why most pencil dresses are mini and medium length because a longer fit won’t let you walk and move as you would like. There are a lot of options available for the top part: long sleeves, sleeveless, v-necklines, halter-neck, open back, with cut outs, you name it! The idea is that there is a dress perfect for every taste and silhouette.
A pencil dress is already a sexy and heavy piece in your outfit, but you can take it to the next level by adding a pair of high heel sandals. They will make you look taller and will elongate your silhouette. You can also wear it with a pair of stilettos or pumps for a neat and put-together effect.
For daywear you can mix the dress with sneakers or flat boots. It will still give you that sexy vibe.
The places where you could wear a pencil dress are endless, due to its versatility. From a day at the office wearing a business pencil dress to a night out in a revealing pencil dress, you have so many options. The secret is to match the occasion with the right pencil dress, and looking into our selection you’ll sure find one for every event!
