5 Reasons Why My Pencil Skirts ARE for You!

So, I'm coming off of a double market weekend, where I got to meet lots of amazing customers in person! One of my favorite parts of the weekend is hearing from you what you love and would like to see in my skirts. Such great inspiration. 

One of the other interesting parts of the weekend is hearing people's comments as they go by. One of the most common is "I can't wear pencil skirts". This weekend I heard it from a 17 year old girl in perfect physical condition and an 80 year old grandma reminiscing of the days when she used to wear skirts like this. I've said it before, and I'll say it again...you are wrong! I promise you, you just need to find the right fit (which I believe I have) and you will look as good as you feel.

So this experience compelled me to compile my Top 5 List of "Why My Pencil Skirts ARE for You!" Here we go!

  1. They are stretchy and forgiving

    • From photos its often hard to tell, but my skirts are made from the same material as yoga pants....say what?! They stretch just enough to hug your curves in all the right places and are soft to the touch. I've had women from a size 2 to size 18 wear the same skirt design (in different sizes) and look equally amazing!

  2. They are NOT bodycon

    • What is bodycon, you ask? Bodycon is what most people think of when they hear pencil skirt. It's skintight, meant to show off ALL your curves...and I mean all. It is not for everyone....and it is NOT how my skirts are designed. My designs fit through hip and are relaxed with a slight taper to the knee. This means they will hug your waist and hip but should float to your knee not be skin tight creating a beautiful hourglass silhouette.

  3. Modern style makes them versatile for work and play

    • You can easily wear them to the office and transition them to the weekend. Different tops and layers can give a completely different feel to my skirts. I've worn mine to Board Meetings with cardigans and to play with my toddlers at the park in a graphic tee.

  4. Comfort. Comfort. Comfort.

    • I cannot say it enough. These are not stiff cotton skirts. They are supremely soft cotton/lycra blend skirts with a beautiful and comfortable stretch to them. You will be so comfortable you'll feel like you're wearing yoga pants!

  5. You deserve something that looks AND feels good!

    • I'm in the business of helping women love their bodies. Above all else, that is my goal. If you don't love how it looks, I won't convince you to buy it. If you buy online, get it, try it on and don't love it, you can email me to return it. I truly believe that when you try on my skirts in the correct size you will feel amazing and look amazing to boot. Trust me, I've been doing this for a while ;-)

I hope this has given you some food for thought when it comes to pencil skirts! Feel free to stop by the SHOP and explore my skirts too! Most importantly, feel free to email me at lysandra[at]geekchicclothing.com with any questions you have while shopping!
