These 5 Outfits Will Make You Want To Upgrade Your Pencil Skirt

When we think about pencil skirts, our minds wander to quiet cubicles, boardroom meetings, and water-cooler small talk. We hardly ever consider this work-wardrobe staple outside of our 9-to-5. Once Friday evening comes around, we swap out knee-length hems and muted colors for boyfriend jeans and cozy sweater dresses. But, Instagram's most fashionable are making the case for pencil skirts off the clock — and there are no pinstripes in sight.
When it comes to their off-duty pencil skirts, our favorite bloggers think big: bright sequins, unconventional textures, feminine patterns.

We're talking formfitting denim that goes halfway down your calves, or rib knits that are just snug enough. Ahead, see how five Instagrammers are revamping the style.
