I've said it before, and I'll say it again. I absolutely love pencil skirts and their ability to instantly make me feel professional and put-together. They're flattering on nearly all body types, and if you find one in the right material, they can really suck you in. This one is ponte, and I think it's my new best friend. It feels a lot like sweats, and it's nice and thick, making it warmer than most other skirts I own. Now I'm going to have to resist the urge to buy ponte everything.

Are you a fan of the pencil skirt? What's your favorite thing about them?
