In South Florida, it's all about skimpy tops and short skirts. But this season, get ready to do a double take. We promise it won't be your jaws that are dropping, it will be the hemlines.Shireen Sandoval has the latest on the "it skirt" in tonight's Fashion Forward.
WSVN-- This season, think Audrey Hepburn in the late 1950's. For fall, mini skirts take a back seat to the pencil skirt.
Dana Bruno of Bloomindales: "It's the hottest thing this fall. It is this year's mini skirt. Pencil skirt. much hotter."
At Bloomindales in Aventura, the say don't be fooled by the longer length. Straight legged and skin tight, these skirts are bursting at the seams with sex appeal.
Dana: "The pencil skirt is so sexy and sophisticated. It makes a woman's body look fabulous."
Getting to the point, not only are they form fitting and fabulous, but they look great in every style.
From pinks to greens to silks and tweeds it's whatever suites your fancy
Dana: "You will find the pencil skirt in every color and fabric."
At Wish Boutique, they love the pencil skirt because it's the perfect piece for women of all ages
Joanne Bertolino of Wish Boutique: "Pencil skirts are definitely in for fall and it's great because all ages can wear them. It's not just for the young."
And not only is this new look great cause it adds curves and shapes to any figure, they are very versatile too.
Pair it with a sexy top for night or a conservative sweater for day. You can even wear this look to work.
Joanne: "Wear it to work during the day in your comfy pumps and then put a stiletto on for night and you are good to go."
So no matter your size or your shape, the pencil skirt is a great staple for anyone's wardrobe
And to get a really feminine and flirty look, look for a pencil skirt with bow, diamond or lace detail.
