Wardrobe Essentials: The Pencil Skirt

The pencil skirt is such a staple that it's really no surprise that it's up next on my list of wardrobe essentials. This classic will be with you season after season after season. The tailored silhouette almost demands for a straighter and more poised posture when being worn. Don't you agree? It's such a versatile piece; ideal for the office at a business lunch or job interview and great for a night out with with friends or dinner date with your man (with a trendy blouse and strappy heels). Whether you go for an interesting print or your favorite color, make sure to pick one with good construction. Because I always buy high quality skirts (on sale of course!) the cost per wear is better than most of the other items in my closet. Do you own a pencil skirt? What is your favorite way to wear them?
