i recently purchased an american apparel DENIM pencil skirt. i’m planning to wear it for a casual everyday basis kind of thing..but i’m not sure what shoes i can pair it with. What shoe can i wear with the skirt and top that isn’t a heel without looking stumpy?

Some flat oxfords would look nice. I think it depends where the skirt ends, if you don’t have long legs, it might look a bit stumpy.

I think flats with pencil skirts are classic, but look for flats that won’t shorten your legs—sneakers and lace ups cut off the line of the leg at the ankle, instead maybe some low cut ballet flats and pointy toe shoes (though I personally don’t like these) also lengthen the line of the legs. Just avoid ankle straps or mary-janes.

the possibilities are endless my dear. strappy sandals, white sneakers, ballerina, ankle boot (flat) and anything else your lovely little mind can dream of. please post pics of whatever you decide :)

the only thing you can’t wear are flat or round toe boots!! even pointy, heeled boots look weird!! i wear a pencil skirt every day to work and i usually war any kind of low heel or flats. it is very versatile and my favourite item in my wardrobe!!

id go with shoes over boots as well.

but minus that criteria id say you can pull off almost any type of shoe if you do it right/it suits your outfit/personal style…oxfords, white pumps and even converse etc look fine with pencil skirts with the right ensemble up top, imo. :]

I love ballet flats – casual 50s inspired chic a la Audrey Hepburn! Any size heels look good for a more dressed up look as well. For a more punked up look, you could wear Chuck Taylors and pair the skirt w/ a band t. So many ways you can rock it!

You need height with pencil skirts. It elongates the leg because I feel that sometimes pencil skirts have a shortening effect. you should try it with a simple pump or a strappy heel. Something light and high

I would have to agree that majority of people look best in some kind of heel when wearing a pencil skirt. Even a small heel would be ok. If you simply cannot wear a heel I also would recommend a ballet flat.

I agree with most people’s posts, but I’d also add that you’ll want to avoid sandals with a strap that wraps around the ankle if you’re looking for that long-leg look. Shoes that expose the top of the foot or shoes that are a color with hues your skin tone will also make your legs appear longer without tacking on any heel. Have fun!

There is a time for both Pumps and Flats with a pencil skirt. It depends if you are going casual or not.

It honestly depends on your height. I’m 5 feet so I always wear a heel. But if your taller theres more of a choice because you don’t have the fear of looking stumpy.

I have a couple business-y pencil skirts that I wear with either black heels or black flats, depending on where I’m going. Flats look fine with them, sometimes better :)

pumps are always sexy with a pencil skirt :) but they are inconvenient…
check out gojane.com for some pointed flats :)

I think denim pencil skirts look best with suede shoes. Whether they’re flat or heeled is all up to you, but I think the don’t-break-your-leg-line advice is quite sage.

I’d suggest a cute flat that compliments your top.
