what’s one item of clothing that’s flattering on most body types, comes in a variety of colors/prints/textures for any style, and can be dressed up or down? the pencil skirt. a staple in my wardrobe, i love to mix more sparkly versions with a denim button front shirt, or try a knit one with chuck taylors or ballet flats for the weekend. j.crew’s no.2 pencil comes in everything from cotton stretch to all-over sequins (plus it comes in petite and tall sizes), but there are other options at every pricepoint:

– pim and larkin “colette” pencil skirt (comes in orange, blush, cobalt, and yellow)
– seven for all mankind garden party skirt
– tibi geo printed skirt
– topshop striped pencil skirt
– nanette lepore “squeeze me” pencil skirt
– calvin klein polka dot pencil skirt
– burberry london raffia-effect quilted crepe skirt
– asos collection bonded lace pencil skirt
