The Apple Shape Wardrobe: Wearing a Pencil Skirt as a Long Strapless Tube Top

* All my outfits emphasize flattering an apple shape -wider shoulders/narrow hips. In this picture I am 5’1″ and 140lbs. I am petite and also have a high waist and short torso.

A Pencil Skirt as a Tube Top

Have you ever worn your pencil skirt as a tube top with a cardigan? It works really well for apple shapes because it is longer than most tube tops that end up looking like crop tops. I always wear mine with a cardigan to create that long vertical line down the middle of my torso. Also, floral looks so good with panama hats, don’t you think?

Outfit ideas similar to what I’m wearing: Panama hat. Maroon open cardigan. Achieve a similar look with this long navy floral tank. I only buy jeans these days from Articles of Society and always in a high rise. They are the perfect amount of stretch and structure. Tortoise shell sunglasses. Black strappy stretchy wedge sandals. Stretchy sandals are so comfy.
