The pencil skirt is a sure way to look sharp this season.
While The No. 2 Label might come to mind when you think of pencils, the pencil skirt is currently rising the ranks to No. 1. Maybe it’s the curve-enhancing quality that gets the thin-of-frame so excited, or perhaps it’s the va-va-voom factor that has all the curvy girls going wild. But one thing’s certain: No matter what your body type, the pencil skirt acts as an eraser, streamlining your silhouette. We adore the look on retro-loving vixens like Katy Perry and Ashlee Simpson, but we have to admit that when we spotted hometown “hautie” Karlie Kloss prancing down Burberry’s runway in the look, we were immediately inspired to pencil in a shopping expedition with our bestie to score our own take on the trend.
