The New Generation Of Pencil Skirts Aren't Just For Your 9-5

Right now, you’d probably crown your black blazer as your most hardworking wardrobe basic. And, considering how much you break it out — for work, for play, and everything in between — we don’t blame you, but all that’s about to change. No, we’re not about to overthrow your precious, go-to professional topper with an on-trend piece like a crop top or overalls, but rather, a timeless pencil skirt.
In fact, the once-stuffy, 9-to-5-only skirt isn’t just for your business-casual affairs anymore. Instead, it’s enjoying a resurgence in so-summery fabrics and patterns like bold, candy-colored stripes and blossom-printed denim, making it the perfect complement for all those basic tees you’ve been racking up since March. Our favorite so-flattering pencil skirts, right this way!
