Pumped Up Pencil

August 20, 2013

When I think of pencil skirts, I often think of dull office skirt-suits. But J.Crew—as it does with everything it touches—has somehow turned the pencil skirt into an ultra-desirable item that can easily be worn outside of the office. Admittedly, as someone who isn’t very tall, it can be tough to find a pencil skirt that hits at the right spot (ideally, just above the knee), but assuming I can find the right fit, sign me up for all three of these ways to wear a pencil skirt…

01 // With A Vest—I love any excuse to wear a puffer vest, so this look had me right there. That being said, I love the way the vest and the denim shirt make the whole look significantly more casual, while the skirt keeps it very chic. It’s sort of a camper-meets-executive look, and I like it.
