We've been having a love affair with skirts this summer, but if we were forced to be monogamous, the choice would be clear. In stripes and pastels, metallics and plaids, this former workwear staple is outgrowing the office and becoming a must-have for the style set. Forget the twinset and button up blouse, we're pairing our knee-length skirts with casual t-shirts, knits, leather jackets and even crop tops.
Style bloggers like Krystal Bick, Rach Parcell and Blair Eadie have shown us a wealth of ways to put together a stylish pencil skirt outfit. Try tucking in a denim shirt or trying a sweatshirt around your waist to lend an appeal that can easily be dressed up or down.
Even the trifecta of stylish celebrities--Miranda Kerr, Diane Kruger and Beyonce--have each shown us a unique way to wear the look, including wearing a dress underneath it. We promise, Diane is not the only one who can pull this off! We also love how Queen Bey rocked a pencil skirt and crop top matched set while Miranda Kerr kept it ladylike with a floral skirt, silk blouse and structured satchel.
Scroll through these inspiring outfits in the gallery above and you'll never look at pencil skirts the same way again.
