I’m wildly attracted to the fab 40s silhouette of the pencil skirt. It’s got a very sexy, come-hither appeal in the most unassuming way. The best looks graze just below the knee and offer some movement with the help of a spandex/lycra blend. Added plus: the high waisted variety conceals belly bulge, and, added with a thick belt, adds drama and sophistication. The pencil skirt is a classic, and is, in my opinion, one of the hottest looks for the season.

Try Urban Outfitters‘ sleek office-ready version, $58.
Target offers the classic at a great price- $19!
Forever 21 also offers a fab version with a great button detail for $18.
The Lavish pick? Robert Rodriguez’ Belted High-Waist Skirt can be preordered from Intermix.
