I ordered this pencil skirt on a whim. I realized that I didn’t own many skirts appropriate for work and wanted something a bit different. Black and white is always a safe bet and I knew I would be able to find a million things in my closet to pair it with. As it turned out, the skirt fits perfectly off the rack and sits snugly around my hips and waist.

While the skirt does hug my rear-end a little tighter than I would have liked, I plan to always wear tights with it at work and keep things more demure everywhere else. Likewise, I work in a more casual office so this is more appropriate.

The skirt sits at the smallest part of my waist making it perfect to pair with high waist belts and tucked in shirts. I love the styling options with it and that the black/white combo goes well with black tights and boots. I’m already envisioning wedge ankle booties once I find the perfect pair.

Finally, the rise of the garment is about 3 inches above my knee and is a total of 20 inches in length, though shorter in the back to accommodate for my rear end. It also has some stretch to it, making it more comfortable for all-day wear.

I love this skirt and am thrilled with the surprising fit and find!
