Trust me darlings, this is THE skirt shape to be seen in. This fall/winter, loads of designers introduced new and interesting ways to wear the pencil skirt. I had stereotypical associations of secretary gear connected to this shape, but gone are the days when I was young and stupid (not). What I find really cool, is dressing it down with a baggy T-shirt or loose shirt and wedges or lace-up boots. I succumbed to temptation too and bought a beautiful maroon one with a leather trim so expect the photos soon.
