Spotlight On: The High-Waisted Pencil Skirt

It's a well-known fact that every girl should have a high-waisted pencil skirt in her closet. But not all of us can afford one by L'Wren Scott, such as this streamlined beauty that sells for a whopping £785, which translates into...well, knowing the exchange rate nowadays, a lot of US dollars. Sigh. Thankfully, Rebecca Taylor comes to the rescue with a classic knee-length pencil skirt. With sexy seam detail down the front and a buckle, the skirt is designed to give a trendy twist on a classic look. Plus, the camel color matches just about anything!

Abigail Lorick (known as the designer behind Gossip Girl's Eleanor Waldorf Designs) makes a high-waisted feminine skirt in yellow and black. Though this one is probably a challenge to color coordinate, its whimsical pattern and flattering silhouette are too difficult to ignore. And big plus, it's on sale!

I love that the pencil skirt breathes some style into workplace outfits. I usually pair mine with a ruffled shirt, like this cool sleeveless one by Geren Ford, for an ultra-feminine style. How do you wear yours?
