10th Commandment: February 7

No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Cotton ($110)

Last week, I posted that I purchased this skirt for spring and a reader asked me how I planned to style it, so I figured why not show you?  

If you’re down for cobalt but need a cheaper price, this J.CREW Factory skirt in a similar color (and a bunch of pretty hues) is $50 and this Charlotte Russe skirt is $15 (though it may require a slip).  And if you’re plus size, this cobalt skirt is $79.

Looking for another color?  How about emerald green, orange or pink

    I've heard that the No. 2 skirt in cotton tends to wrinkle. Do you find that to be the case, or does it not bother you much?

  2. Karen says:

    Just a heads up – I bought the JCrew factory version of this skirt in two colors last Spring and I was very disappointed in the quality. It becomes a wrinkled mess after you sit down for the first time and looks even worse by the end of the day.

  3. ADL says:

    As others have said, not a fan of the cotton no 2 pencil skirts – they wrinkle like crazy and don't want to say crisp (both regular J Crew and Factory). I'm a HUGE fan of the wool no 2 pencil skirt though, as it is gorgeous and stays wrinkle free!

  4. LS says:

    Totally agree! I have a hot pink cotton no. 2 and the wrinkles are comical. I might have to splurge for the wool version this year.

  5. S says:

    Another thing to note about the Factory version – you will need a slip if you wear it with tights. I made that mistake once and will never forget that horribly awkward day of my skirt riding up constantly.
