Remix: Red Pencil Skirt

Oh, Hello! I didn't see you there! Maybe that's because I can't see you...anyway I digress. This week's remix is one of my essential wardrobe items, a vintage, red pencil skirt! It is an item I have had for over four years now and it is part of a vintage suit I own. I never imagined it would become such a staple in my wardrobe when I bought the suit at a flea market in college. The color is a nice, dark crimson that pairs well with a range of colors and the length makes it easy to style in varying proportions. Let's just say I'll be keeping this little number around for quite some time!

Have a blessed weekend all you beauties!

That skirt always looks fabulous on you. Red is undoubtedly my colour of choice fr a pencil skirt after black! Kx

Great post. It's the perfect, classic skirt and it looks fabulous on you!

You look great in red! I love classic basics for this reason, too; you can do so much with them, and you do a splendid job of showing this skirt's potential here. Fantastic!

Fabulous looks!!! I was inspired to wear my vintage red a-line (it's sort like a cross between a pencil and an a-line shape) skirt more after seeing you in yours here and am very glad for it, as it really can work as a pseudo neutral and is so much more upbeat and chipper than, say, black or brown.

Big hugs & the happiest of weekend wishes,
♥ Jessica

Love this skirt! I made myself a red pencil skirt a while back and it really hasn't gotten the wear it deserves.. must remedy this.
Red is definitely one of my favourite clothes-colours, I count it as a neutral because it somehow magically goes with everything!

Wow. I'm really awed that one single red vintage pencil skirt could bring about a variety of amazing looks. They look so different with every pairing.

Thank you for sweet comment, Katie. I enjoyed reading it. I'm always glad when my blog posts offer a lot more knowledge than just pictures and I'm glad that there are people like you who found the links useful. Have a good Easter weekend!

My favorite of these is definitely the skirt paired with the light blue collared sweater and navy/brown accessories. :) I see why this skirt is such a staple!
