Pencil skirts may seem painfully "work appropriate," but their newest iterations are anything but boring. Here, we paired a silhouette-print skirt ($76 at Topshop) with Alexander Wang's modern waffle-knit sweater ($495 at LaGarconne) and shiny patent loafers by Repetto ($485 at LaGarconne). Isabel Marant's simple brass bauble necklace ($180 at Net-a-Porter) adds a pop of of personality but still feels delicate.

J.Crew's black and white sequin skirt ($695 at J.Crew) will take you from work to evening with the addition of a stripey tee by Kain ($90 at Net-a-Porter) and Zara's strappy kitten heels ($49.90 at Zara). A pair of gold studs by Mociun ($405 at LaGarconne) keeps the look modern while lending a hint of glitz.

A classically chic navy pencil skirt ($76 at Topshop) pairs perfectly with Equipment's peachy silk buttondown ($210 at Net-a-Porter) and a pair of chunky grey platform pumps from Brian Atwood ($619 at MyTheresa). For a little glam, we added Shorouk's sparkly rope bracelet ($220 at MyTheresa) in a coordinating peach hue.

We paired ASOS' preppy striped skirt ($35 at ASOS) with Miu Miu's subtly flared V-neck blouse ($741 at MyTheresa) for a chic summer look. Sergio Rossi's slim suede pumps ($570 at ForwardForward) add a dose of sex appeal, while Eddie Borgo's spiked gold bangle ($350 at Net-a-Porter) can toughen up any ensemble.

Mixed-up prints and patterns are among our favorite summer trends, so we tried J.Crew's stripey pencil skirt ($118 at J.Crew) with Preen's silky brocade blouse ($750 at Net-a-Porter) and simple leather sandals from Givenchy ($850 at ForwardForward). Aesa's structured jewel-shaped studs ($175 at LaGarconne) feel cool and modern but just shimmery enough to enliven the look.
