Keeping It Close

Featuring (left to right, top to bottom): Abigail, Yvonne, Myca, Shiu An, Jacqueline, Geraldine

Pencil dresses have a bad rep as “dull corporate uniforms”; however, these Shentonistas show that there’s more than one way to make the piece stand out. Whether it’s a statement necklace that draws the eye upwards, a thin belt to cinch the waist, or an oversized bag, each of these ladies make the dress truly their own. Even simpler, a contrasting panel of colour not only gives the dress an added flair but also accentuates the silhouette. A word of caution though: keep the hemline at or below the knee to offset the fitted form of this dress. Think of it as a blank canvas to paint on—it’s all about injecting a bit of your personality into the look. A go-to for the smart professional woman, the pencil dress covers you for office meetings, parties, or a more formal occasion, so it’s little wonder that this humble staple has quietly but steadfastly made its way into our wardrobes.
