Ensemble: Sweatshirt and Pencil Skirt

I liked the way this dressy skirt was styled with a casual sweatshirt and sneakers. A fun Sporty Luxe combination that smacks of 2018. Our current fashion era celebrates irregular outfit juxtaposition so this is on point. It’s one way to take the bombshell and twee out of a pencil skirt, and make it more practical and comfortable to wear. 

Of course, you don’t need to pair the look with sneakers. Feel free to choose footwear that tickles your fancy, and use any colour palette. I’ve chosen patterns, graphic sweatshirts and plaids to add interest to the outfit in the ensemble. Use solids if that’s more your thing.

The outfit formula is dead simple. Choose a fun pencil skirt and combine it with a sweatshirt that matches it in some way. The pairing can match perfectly, or match in an abstract way. Wear the sweatshirt untucked or semi-tucked. Choose anything from sneakers and flats to booties, pumps and tall boots as shoes. Pop a pair of leggings under the skirt, or wear hosiery for warmth. Finish off the look with a coat or jacket, and a bag that works with the palette of the outfit. Add jewellery, eyewear, scarf and watch as desired.

Pencil skirts on the Spring 2018 runways.

Could it be the golden age of Vetements is over? Runway fashion, which for a while (mostly) left behind glamour and maturity in favor of a seemingly endless stream of athleisure, has once again shifted course.

If there’s one thing fashion girls can’t have enough of right now, it’s quirky-cool business casual attire: think hot pink suits, oversized check blazers, artfully embellished button-downs. And if the high volume of slim skirting on the Spring 2018 runways is any indication, un-boring pencil skirts are next on that list.

Fendi saw a chevron-striped midi paired with multiple layers of transparent, horizontally striped toppers. Max Mara went a more classic route, teaming a floral print pencil skirt with a rather simple black silk blouse. No. 21 riffed on the sexy librarian look: there, a sheer, statement collar polo complemented a ruched-front red leather midi. A silky V-neck cami took the place of the librarian-favorite argyle vest.

Alessandro Michele, meanwhile, couldn’t resist more literal geek-chic styling. The first look to walk Gucci’s sprawling Spring 2018 runway? A pink-checkered pencil skirt paired with a strong-shouldered overscale blazer, crisp white button-down, layers upon layers of costume necklaces, metallic fishnet tights and Farrah Fawcett feathered hair. Prada showed a New Wave mashup of cat-eye shades, a cartoon-printed, citrus-hued sweater vest, pointed patent brogues and a black, red-streaked pencil skirt. Still, Dries Van Noten’s styling suggestion was by far the most daring. Rock a sheer pink pencil skirt with 50s-style briefs, a similarly transparent top and a glimmering, marine motif bomber jacket, he said.

With its sleek lines, body-skimming shape and flattering knee to mid-calf hemline, it’s easy to see the pencil skirt’s timeless appeal. Note: to avoid looking predictable, dated or stuffy, opt for midis in fun materials and patterns, or with decidedly modern accents. Or, if you do go the classic black route, a printed/graphic statement top is an absolute must.

With that in mind, shop 20 of our current favorite pencil skirts (most of them a little bit business, a lotta bit party) in the slideshow below.

The first look at how you’ll sculpt in augmented reality using Apple Pencil and ARKit is here, and awesome

TwitterFacebook

By now you’ve seen a good number of impressive augmented reality demos using Apple’s ARKit, but you haven’t seen anything like this—sculpting in AR with the Apple Pencil. 

The demo was shown off on Friday on YouTube by India-based developer Fabin Rasheed. 

Although Rasheed doesn’t go into great detail on all the things the app can do, he did post a message on his Facebook account offering a general sense of what the app is meant to achieve. 

“My latest work using ARKit,” wrote Rasheed. “Made this app for sculpting and painting in AR.” 

The app, which is called MakerStudio, shows the ability to create 3D objects and paint those objects in AR, all while using the precision of the Apple Pencil. There’s no word on when this app might be available to the public, but it’s just another exciting glimpse of what iOS 11 users will be able to do once they get their hands on the AR-enabled iPhone 8Read more…
