12 Pencil Skirts You'll Want To Own Now

The pencil skirt has long earned a reputation as a mainstay in the working women’s 9 to 5 wardrobe. A far cry from the revealing mini and boho maxi, the safe pencil has been deemed the more conservative of the skirt silhouettes, but judging from the recent NYFW and LFW street-style shots (and even as far last year’s shows), the pencil is now – dare we say – very  hip. So how is it that this safe skirt is getting top billing for fall?

This new image makeover has lots do with the fresh way style-setters are styling this hip-hugging skirt. Traditionally teamed with dressed-up blouses or tailored blazers, the pencil gets an off-the-moment re-styling paired with casual tops such as slouchy knits, sweatshirts and T-shirts.

There’s no shortage of great looking pencil skirts in a multitude of styles, textures and prices. We’ve compiled some of  our favorite pencil skirts to take you through fall in style.
