Style Fix | Le Pencil Skirt

I have recently developed a love of pencil skirts. In part, I blame J. Crew, which seems to be responsible for the majority of my style and color palette fixations (my goodness, but seriously, Jenna Lyons knows what she’s doing!). They’re simple. Classic. Elegant. Feminine. Versatile. And so incredibly chic, when done right.

Clockwise, from top right: Acne, $390,; J. Crew, $90,; Karl, $310,; J. Crew, $98,; Kelly Bergin leather skirt, $460,; J. Crew, $98,

I used to avoid them, thinking they were too serious or just so drab and unflattering. But with the right cut, a punch of color, and the perfect pairings, they can function as chic, dressed-down pieces for everyday as well as being staples of any work wardrobe. These are just a few that I love — although in the past year or so, the pencil skirt craze has resulted in tons of options for every possible price point and palette, whether you’re into colors, prints, tweed, leather, or just classic black cotton.

What’s your style fixation this week?

  1. My closet is filled with pencil skirts. There’s nothing more flattering if you have a small waist and wider hips. Makes you feel like an extra in Mad Men.

  2. I Love, Love, Love the pencil skirt! Currently in my wardrobe we have orange, red with black trim, a black wool with fine sky-blue threads running through-out, a black, cream and taupe wool number and a snake skin print that was cheap as from Target. Mostly they are worn for work but found I enjoyed wearing them over the summer with wedge sandles and have started wearing them with tights and boots as the weather begins to cool here. One of my favourite fashion staples!

    • Wow, can I just say how jealous I am? It sounds like you have quite the collection! Currently, I only have basic black, but I’m looking to stock up for spring. Got a ton of wear out of it in the chillier months with tights and boots as well! Such a cute look. Thanks for your comment!
