I’ve slowly been working pencil skirts into my wardrobe, mostly because I made a few impulse buys at a J. Crew sale. You know what I’m talking about. It was one of those magical moments when everything I tried on fit and was on serious sale. Surrounded by the preppy yet quirk aesthetic I adore, I didn’t stop to consider how I’d wear these fabulous new pieces. I just would.
Pencil skirts really didn’t strike me as a piece I’d find difficult to make my own, but after a few tries, I was still on the fence about the polished silhouette. Then I paired one with a chunky knit, and I knew I’d found my go to styling. I love the contradiction of a slouchy, oversized knit with a fitted, ladylike skirt. Throw in my favorite booties and a few pops of neon? Suddenly I love pencil skirts.
