The Classic and Sexy Pencil Skirt

We're so happy this super sexy trend has stuck around from last season. From sleek looks in classic black to romantic retro, the pencil skirt can be surprisingly versatile. Pair it with a pair of spiked heels and a pretty belt for a sopisticated look for day or night. Check out the look below from Ralph Lauren's fall runway show.

But don't get stuck always wearing basic black. Keep your eye out for brighter colors and different fabrics this season. Our pick for our favorite pencil skirt is this beautiful wool number from Koi Suwannagate we found recently at August on College Ave.

In beautiful teal wool with lovely details, this variation on the pencil skirt looks straight out of the 40's. And did we mention it has a lovely pleat in the back? Pair it with ankle-strap heels and a pretty cardigan for a look that will carry you through the winter chill. Check out how it looked on the runway.
