Fashion Friday: #2 Pencil Skirt Fashionista Jen H. shares her take on back-to-school supplies.


Fall is the best opportunity to re-evaluate your wardrobe. But it’s also the best time to pull out or purchase a pencil skirt! Who says back-to-school shopping is just for the kids?

3 reasons to rock a pencil this fall:

e8883_na6434_mClimate Control: It’s a great transition piece from summer to autumn, especially in this Baltimore humidity. You can still let your legs breathe while not overexposing—and starting to inject that fall flair.  (Try this beauty from J. Crew.)







Flattering Fit: Don’t be fooled by the name—pencil skirts are not only for the curveless. This form-fitting piece can elongate, support and flatten some things we want hidden. (We love this slimming one from White House Black Market.)





Versatility: You can dress a pencil skirt up with pumps and a blouse or dress it down with sneakers and a tee shirt. (A pretty patterned option like this Anthropologie selection is ideal for either.)



We know you’re probably itching to slide back into your fall denim, but remember—it’s still in the 90s. So why not stay sharp?
