How to glam up a denim pencil skirt?
Well, I could wear it with this old silk kimono (you’ve seen it before HERE), add a few necklaces and a wide belt. Yes, that might work…
I suppose I could wear this kimono with a simple black pencil skirt, or black trousers, but I prefer a bit more of a rock and roll / punk vibe. Therefore, I also added a few accessories to give this outfit a slightly tougher edge: the studded belt and the leather and chain necklaces provide a nice contrast with the delicate silk.
I think it’s important to make any outfit your own, in the sense that it should reflect your personality. For example, anything soft and silky and delicate scares me a bit: it’s a bit too sweet and girly for my taste (but I love seeing it on other people). Maybe, deep down, I’m just a rock chick…
