Here Are The Best Pencil Skirt Alternatives To Upgrade Your Style

Tired of wearing pencil skirts or looking for a better skirt that gives you the same structured look like a pencil skirt, but is much more flattering? In this post I am sharing the best pencil skirt alternatives that will help you update your skirt style once and for all. 

Why Pencil Skirts Were Popular?

Honestly, I have never been a fan of pencil skirt, but they were a wardrobe staple for most Millennials in our 20s. Whether it was the the jersey pencil skirt for a casual or a club look. Or the structured pencil skirts for work. 

I think the pencil skirt was just another option for suit pants because they made us feel feminine. But not sure how we wanted to squeeze our things and walk all day!

While that was the only alternative at that time, we can definitely do better now. 

Try these skirt styles instead for a sleek and classy look that will not date you.

Best Pencil Skirt Alternatives

Here are the best styles of 2024 you can try out instead of pencil skirts.

Bias Skirt

Buttoned A Line Skirt

These are like shirts but for your bottom part of the body. They have all over button and they can either be pencil style or my favorite is the A line style. 

This looks flattering and much more modern. 

You can wear it casually by adding casual tops and sneakers, or you can wear them dressed up with blouses. 

These skirts have the structured look like pencil skirts but they look much more elevated. 

You can also find these in pencil skirt style, but honestly these once look way more stylish and more importantly comfortable.

Flounce Skirt

These skirts look so fun and chic. They are body hugging at the top and become flowy at the bottom. 

You can also call them mermaid skirts. They are perfect for ladies who have an hour glass shape, because this accentuates it. 

But if you are pear and straight figured these can give you more of the hour glass shape. 

Plus it’s not as restrictive as the pencil skirt. These skirts give you the polished look but they look flattering and comfortable for all day wear.

Pleated Skirt

Faux Wrap Skirt

I am emphasizing on faux wrap skirt because these are much more secure than wrap skirts. I have seen skirts getting loose and completely falling on ladies at work. And you dont want that. 

Instead go for these faux wrap style of skirts that look like they are wrapped but they are regular skirts. 

These skirts have more room around the waist and look flattering. But they have the same silhouette as the pencil skirt. And you can pick them in prints and solids. 

Poplin Skirt

A poplin skirt is a fusion of pleated skirt and aline skirt. It has a thick waist band and slight pleats almost like trousers. 

And it’s a great alternative to pencil skirts for work. They look flattering on all body type. And also add a touch of softness to your work looks. 

You can pick midi length or maxi length depending on your style preference. But I love ankle length. 

They make your legs look long and the slight ankle touch will elevate your outfits.

Skater Skirt

Belted Skirt

Skirts with built in belt are a great alternative to pencil skirt. The belt detail adds more professional and polished touch to your outfit. But they do not need to be in the pencil skirt silhouette. 

I love these A line belted skirts that are flowy and really comfortable to wear but with the belt detail, they look elevated. 

And you can wear them to work confidently. In terms of length you can pick midi or even maxi length for a much more polished look.
