Penciled In: JCDC Nautical Pencil Skirt

While winter dressing is our favorite game to play, we at Vnyc do agree that's it's always much easier to dress for summer weather. Less clothing that's for sure, but warmer weather is also when you tend to simplify everything and head to the tried-&-true classics. Gauzy maxi dresses, wedges, Bermuda shorts, floral prints and nautical themes are always summer closet constants. Yet what's often difficult during the summer season is finding pieces that aren't so day friendly, and too casual.

Besides coming from a storied, highly collectible & influential label like JEAN CHARLES De CASTELABAJAC, the original wit-master himself, this pencil skirt is a great starting point for chic summer dressing. Its a seductively fitted elegant yet cheeky ode to 80's nautical preppiness with crisp metallic gold pinstripes set against a demure oatmeal background that's counterbalanced by substantial gold decorative buttons. A pencil skirt with such polish & symbolic flair is a genius proposition for summer suiting and is a very chic alternative to the relentless parade of boho basics and cut-off denim shorts that those around you will be tirelessly parading around in. Best of all, it's linen composition ensures that this time around you won't have to sacrifice comfort to look put together.
