Modest cuts are trending big and we can't shake the skirt love happening right now. While a midi skirt pushes our buttons, there's something about a classic pencil skirt that adds so much subtle edge to any attire — check out our three fave takes on this modest number.

Blushing nudes: Neutrals complement feminine cuts and fabrics such as lace and embroidered texture. We are lovin' the use of soft pastels and nude hues to tie this delicate but modern look together.

SHOP IT: River Island White Embellished Waist Pencil Skirt, $100.00,, Bardot Georgette Lexus Top in Pale Pink, $79.95,, Forever New Kristie Small Bag in Mint, $44.99,, Topshop Golden Mid Heel Court Shoes, GBP58.00,

Clashing prints: Animal print + classic print (such as tartan, check or polka dots) = the perfect match for clashing success! A relaxed pencil skirt and contrasting slides make this look laidback and easy to achieve.

SHOP IT: Topshop Texture Check Tube Skirt, GBP7.00,, Sportsgirl Cable Pullover in Cream, $89.95, Island Grey Snake Print Slip On Trainers, $40.00, riverisland.comColette Quilt Belina Crossbody Bag in Black, $29.95,

Normcore: Average looking threads create a sort of impact that comes with well put together basics. Nothing is loud and nothing is noticiable. Leather, black and an interesting cut are all you need to get off-duty model.
