Inspiration for Our February Pencil Skirt Box

It's hard to deny the versatility of the simple pencil skirt. It can be paired with a simple tank for a great weekend outfit. Or match it to a blazer and a nice shirt, and you have your go-to work outfit. It can be made in pretty much any color and any print.
I also think it's incredibly figure-flattering. Pretty much any body type can sport the look. No matter what fruit or vegetable you happen to be (apple, pear, beanpole, pineapple - okay, that one is made up but I'm imagining it fits someone with a mohawk), this style will work with you to show off your best assets.
When looking for inspiration out there, it wasn't hard to find thousands of gorgeous photos of people sporting the humble pencil skirt. Here are a few of the ones who influenced my fabric and pattern choices.  Take a look!
