Pencil skirts are the superheroes of my working wardrobe. Whenever I’m in a slump about how to feel confident and look professional, the pencil skirt is always there to save me. Whether it’s in a bright print like J.Crew’s Collection No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Shadow Floral or in a solid that grounds any outfit, the pencil skirt is here to stay!

I simply adore the Collection No. 2′s floral print and gentle sheen. This skirt is an absolute show-stopper! Pair her with another subtle print, as above, or toss on a dashing solid color to ground the print against something concrete, like below:

A true design icon that we’ve meticulously shaped and seamed to figure-flattering perfection (always sharp and to the point, the No. 2 pencil will be your wardrobe’s most noteworthy addition). The floral motif caught the eye of one of our designers on a recent trip to the archive of a London print house—we love how the incredible detail gives it the look of embroidery from far away. Carefully placed in a mirror image layout for graphic appeal, it’s a striking mix of old and new.

I concur. Would you add an eye-catching printed pencil skirt into your working wardrobe, or would you save prints for your tops? This spring and summer, I’m tempted to dive into prints with my skirts!
