|The streamline pencil skirt remains an elegant classic. A pencil skirt is a slim-fitting skirt with a straight, narrow cut. Generally the hem falls to, or just below, the knee and is tailored for a close fit. It is named for its shape: long and slim like a pencil. Party in everything from a PVC pastel pencil skirt, to a decorative peplum hemline that’ll see you dance floor ready. Whether you work mini or midi lengths, you don’t have to be clued up to know crop tops go hand in hand with high waist party skirts.
