Khaki Pencil Skirt

Updated on March 21, 2011

About the Khaki Pencil Skirt

A khaki pencil skirt is the perfect option for any occasion. It can be dressed up or dressed down depending on your accessorizing. It can also carry you easily from day to night with a certain comfort that only khaki can bring.

It doesn't take too much intuition to figure out just why the pencil skirt is named so. It's typically just that, straight and form-fitting. If you're not into showing your curves or your butt, then a khaki pencil skirt may not be the best option for you.

Khaki pencil skirts can be found in varying lengths, but typically they fall between the lower thigh and just below the knee. Originally designed as office wear, this length is the most classic and tailored and will never go out of style.

Choosing the Right Khaki Pencil Skirt

A khaki pencil skirt does not mean it's just in the famous beige khaki color. You can find many khaki pencil skirts in a variety of colors and patterns. The most popular is by far the beige khaki pencil skirt because of the versatility of beige as a color.

There are a few things to consider before purchasing a khaki pencil skirt. Recognizing your natural body shape should help you most. It doesn't matter what size you are, you can wear a pencil skirt; however depending on your shape, you have to choose the right length.

If you're a lot curvier on the bottom than the top, then opt for a khaki pencil skirt that hits above the knee. If you choose a longer style, you will only accentuate your curvier hips. This is fine if you have an hourglass figure.

For those women who have straighter hips, you can opt for any length pencil skirt.

If you're shorter, opt for shorter pencil skirts, and if you're tall, well the sky's the limit. You could even wear the mid-calf length pencil skirts they make.

A word of wisdom if you are thinking of purchasing your first pencil skirt. When choosing length, think about how easily you will be able to walk in a floor-length or calf-length pencil skirt. Although they look really beautiful, the restriction it places on your range of leg motion needs to be considered.

To shop for khaki pencil skirts online I recommend checking and eBay.
