STRUT: Blending Green

by - 15 August


Pencil skirts used to be associated as business attire that only go with pumps and stilettos. But now? I can wear 'em with plimsolls! I just love how our generation transformed knee-length pencil skirts into casual wear. 



Stating the obvious - pencil skirts are still being used as business attire, so set your mind on what particular look you're aiming for. In this OOTD, I was aiming for an edgy vibe but still classy at the same time. Although I put on a collared top, which made it a bit sophisticated, my white sneakers turned the outfit around and made it laid back.

If you're wondering what plimsolls are, they're basically sneakers with thick flat rubber soles. Styles of plimsolls can be seen in famous brands like Vans and Converse.

  6. Love the look, Melissa! Since I'm not a fan of heels and wedges, I like how we made those classic white sneakers work with skirts (and with almost anything nowadays!!!) :D

  11. I love pencil skirts and I'm so happy people are wearing them out of the office. I secretly hoarded these cute pencil skirts in pastel colors when I thrift shopped a few years back and I can now put them on display. Haha! Yaaas. :)
