The Polished Pencil Skirt

Most people think of a pencil skirt as nothing more than business attire.  While it is true that a well-fitting pencil skirt is perfect for the office, it is also true that this essential wardrobe staple is quite versatile and can be dressed up or down.  My go-to pencil skirt is a grey cotton-blend, which makes it comfortable and chic, but virtually any pencil skirt will work well with these outfit ideas.
