Mornings Lost to the Clouds

Introduced by Christian Dior in his first collection in 1947. A modern, radical idea originally, this avant-garde silhouette brought out to replace hobble skirts have now evolved into an indispensable element in every woman’s wadrobe. Can you guess?

Vogue 1950

I have a fondness for 1950s fashion, but the rediscovery of the pencil skirt for my own wadrobe was really prompted by its plentiful appearances on catwalks this winter. Particular inspiration for me sprung from Preen’s psychedelic-geometric printed silk pencil skirt.

The crop jacket (borrowed from a friend) is genuinely the only newly-bought item in my ensemble. The top is a vintage borrowed from my Mum, and the pencil skirt is one of my happy-go-lucky finds in a sale a few years back. And, Voilà, pencil skirts, never out of style!

(I have to admit, in fairness, I hardly ever wear this skirt. The gold zip feels far too ostentatious, when I dress in the morning!)

Skirt: River Island, Jacket: Topshop, Top: Vintage
