pencil dress

While slim-fitting dresses, such as the hobble skirt, which was common during World War I, have always been popular fashion choices in western culture, it was not until 1954 that the modern incarnation of the pencil dress was shown to the world by Christian Dior. Today, we can see this classy, sexy style in all walks of life. We are just as likely to see a waitress or flight attendant wearing a midi pencil dress during a shift as we are to see the Duchess of Cambridge wearing this gorgeous style on a summer holiday to Mustique. Modern versions of this style use colorblock techniques to ensure that we really stand out from the crowd.
