Fun, cute, with a definite element of the unexpected. Those are words that describe clothing from designer Pencey. This young and hip label is often found on the likes of Leighton Meester, Katy Perry, Lindsay Lohan, and Amanda Bynes. Pieces like the one-shouldered tee effortlessly combine style and simplicity.
The high collared faux fur leopard print jacket is the perfect finish to a little black dress and edgy black platform boots, and also looks perfect with your favorite jeans and black turtleneck. It is amazingly versatile for a print, with four hook and eye closure, silk lining, and 3/4 length sleeves.
Speaking of the LBD, here’s one with a difference. The Accordion Dress is two-toned crew-neck, with a mesh bodice and silk skirt. It’s sleeveless and the skirt is lined. The bodice features a frayed pin-tuck silk overlay.
This crew neck dress with a plaid silk chiffon skirt could be worn at the office with leggings or to dinner with some lucky guy. It has a solid white jersey bodice and plaid silk chiffon skirt with tiered ruffles that have frayed edges. There is a two-button keyhole back.
Pencey is a line of clothing that bears the same name as Holden Caufield’s prep school in The Catcher in the Rye, which automatically gives it a knowing edge, a way of expressing that beautiful things with unexpected details are even more beautiful, like Holden’s little sister Phoebe. These are smart, edgy clothes that look great on young women who have no intention of toeing the line when it comes to the fashion being dictated to the masses.
