10th Commandment: November 6

Sterling Skirt in Double Serge Wool (J.Crew, $148)

I usually feature pencil skirts on this site, but this skirt is an a-line–a shape that is a bit more forgiving on many figures.  J.CREW makes the skirt in this soft mint, a vibrant orange, a carbon color and camel heather.  So if you want to add a winter skirt to your wardrobe and you want to branch out from the pencil, give this a-line a try.

Also, J.CREW is running a special right now, 25% + free shipping on sales over $150.

Looking for an a-line skirt in a lower price point?  This pleated a-line is under-$50.  And this colorblock skirt from Loft is under-$70.  

Need a plus size skirt?  I love this pleated tweed skirt in deep teal.

    I love this skirt! Maybe it's just me though, but that still looks pretty “pencil” shaped to me…

  2. Belle says:

    That's just this photo. Look at it on the actual model.

  3. Susan says:

    Even on the model it's pretty straight rather than angled- can we call it a lower-case A-line?

  4. JulieY says:

    The JCAs blog posts say that it is less A-line than last year's version. Some liked last year's better – it was longer, some like this year's. Any other suggestions for a good camel colored skirt? Thinking about the sterilng with the 25% off but still a little higher than I want to spend.

  5. Elle says:

    Would y'all wear bear legs with this? I feel like with such a light color, tights might look a bit harsh?

  6. Anna says:

    I'm definitely intrigued by how to style a mint skirt in the winter. I love the color.

  7. Melissa says:

    i definitely would still not call that an a-line skirt. especially since that model is skinny and anybody with much thighs would make it look like a pencil.
