Recently I have become obsessed with wearing pencil skirts, and I’ve also realized the appropriate blouse will complete my overall look. Maybe the constant need to look professional and my personal desire to stay fashionable have crossed paths and created today’s features.
Today I am showcasing blouses that will go nicely with pencil skirts for work and something you can easily slip on/off in the car before a date or happy hour with friends. Who doesn’t want to step up the sex appeal when they can?
As you know studs are in, AGAIN. I really feel like this year they never completely left the fashion scene because studs add so much edginess to the simplest things. So naturally, I have picked a simple black button up that has golden studs along the silhouette.
This shirt is potential squared, literally. You can rock this with jeans on a casual day, tucked into a pencil skirt for work, and it is a great complement to your leather leggings and boots. This will definitely help you transition into your after work plans with a small tweak. In this case I would unbutton a button, add some bold earrings, and call it a beginning to a trendy night.

A little color can go a long way when it comes to a feminine blouse. Anne Klein’s Flounce Front Blouse is such a great option for some ladies. If you are curvy, then I would make sure you get the right size or go bigger so your “girls” will sit in the right spot and won’t look awkward.

Have a hot date after work but don’t have time to go home and change? The Noemi Bustier Top from BCBG is perfect for the occasion. Keep your pencil skirt, slip off your blouse in the car, and slip on this sexy sweetheart, strapless bustier top and get ready to floor him. It’s a great, quick pairing. Besides wearing this top with a short skirt would be overkill and look desperate. However, with a pencil skirt and some pointy shoes you will look sexy in a limited but mysterious way.
