Fashion may have changed throughout the decades, but the modern day’s leading and impactful ladies learnt that the pencil skirt is more than just a trend.
Imagine or not, as much as fashion amends and evolves, there are certain pieces which will never go out of style. This is all due to the fact that fashion, as experimental as it may be, will always find its way back to the basics. Yes, we are talking about one of the most universally-beloved fashion pieces- the pencil skirt.
Created to make every woman look
spectacular, the pencil skirt paved its own path among the ‘big fish’ and was
never taken off the list of everlasting statement fashion pieces. Hollywood and
remaining female personalities have remained faithful to this trend, but even
with pencil skirts, we always get a wide range of models and designs.
Let’s break it down.
The pencil skirt was firstly introduced on the fashion runway by none else but Christian Dior, who was certain the piece would become an instant hit. Marlene Dietrich, who served as Dior’s muse at the time, liked to rock this trend even in its woolen form. Aside from Dior, Balenciaga took a deeper interest into this fashion moment as well.
The face behind Net-a-Porter, Natalie Massenet, was not only epically stylish throughout her entire life, but she also wore every single type of professional pencil skirt you could have found at the time. To learn more on this particular era, just Google “Carine Roitfeld.”
For actress and singer Marilyn Monroe, no pencil skirt could do her justice if it wasn’t for the simplest of air wiggle. Of course, Monroe was a lover of form-fitting pencil skirts, but found a particular satisfaction in the more playful and revealing models. With that body, can you blame her?
As a true fan of vivid colors and making a statement, former First Lady Michelle Obama actually caught our attention by wearing lavishing pencil skirts in all colors of the rainbow. Cozy and affordable, Michelle surely knows how to ‘bring flirty back.’
Have you ever seen Meghan Markle’s ‘Suits?’
If not, you are missing out on a lot, both content and fashion-wise. Meghan
Markle actually looks like the strict, down-to-business NYC woman who struts in
her perfectly fitting light grey pencil skirt, having no other care in the
world. Honestly, what’s not to love about that kind of female power?
