devon pencil dress 1950s retro style

If you're like me, you love fashion but don't have the time to keep up with all the latest trends. That's why I love pencil dresses! They're timeless, versatile, and chic - perfect for any occasion. But how do you wear a pencil dress like a Hollywood star? Read on to find out!

1. Pick a classic style. Classic styles don’t go out of trend in 10, 20, or even 30 years. Few examples

2. Make sure it fits - either order standard size or custom made (a service we offer) to fit your body perfectly. A well fitted dress will accentuate your curves and boost your confidence.

3. Accessorize with gloves, hats, stockings, scarves, or jewelry like earrings and necklaces.

4. Choose the right hairstyle to complete your look.

5. Smile and enjoy yourself! You look fabulous.

The pencil dress is a classic for a reason- it’s versatile, flattering, and can be dressed up or down. If you’re looking for a new go-to outfit for work or special occasions, consider picking up a pencil dress that fits your body type and curves. Accessorize with classic pieces that will never go out of style, and finally, make sure you feel confident and comfortable by practicing walking and sitting in your dress before wearing it in public. Do you have any tips on how to wear a pencil dress? Let me know in the comments below!

I orderes off the Etsy site,,, again 100 stars. My tip, I always wear a slip under my dresses or skirts. A slip will help the dress or skirt fall better on the body, as well as eliminating embrassement when the wind blows. Shar

I ordered a custom made HMC pencil dress with a peplum waist and I suggest having the pencil dresses lined. Mine is lined and it helps me move around in the form fitting dress with ease. Even if you order a darker color fabric, spring for the lining!

The model in these photographs always looks so elegant. If she’s wearing a corset I would love to know where I can get one just like it, I’m dying for that silhouette!
