I'm sure I must have used this post title at some point before, but then I am equally sure I will use it sometime again as well. 'Cause I love pencil skirts. More to the point, I love J Crew pencil skirts.
Until last fall, I thought there was no way you'd ever get a hippy girl like me to wear a pencil skirt- they always looked too boxy and bland. In perennial tones of black and charcoal, they embodied the dull professional uniform. Then I took a chance on J Crew's ochre classic, since I bumped into pictures of it everywhere, and so a love affair was born. They have a magical lengthening effect on the legs and the colours are sublime. I swear you can thrown anything into the mix for a smashing outfit, in any combination of colours.
