New York & Co. Seamed Pencil Skirt ($43)

A few months ago, I was on a trip when I noticed a tear in the black pencil skirt that was the foundation of three days worth of business attire.  Panic ensued.  I dipped into NY & Co., and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the pencil skirt that I bought there–better than H&M, similar to the Limited.  It has good style, a flattering fit, and despite the fact that the material is entirely man-made, the feel isn’t scratchy.

New York & Co.’s suiting pieces go up to size 18, and also come in petite.  If you’d like a longer skirt, New York & Co. also makes a long seamed skirt that is the perfect sleek, almost-midi skirt.  Prefer a fuller skirt?  They also make a fit-and-flare skirt to add some femininity and fun to your work wardrobe.  And don’t miss this adorable pleated lace skirt for casual days or off-hours.

Plus-size?  Torrid makes a pencil skirt for under-$50, and the Merona line from Target also offers an affordable pencil skirt.  Tall?  Liz Claiborne offers a pencil skirt for under-$50, as does J. Jill.

    Is this skirt lined?

      I don’t know about this particular skirt, but I have a NY&Co skirt that is not lined (I wear a slip with it). It’s held up well since I got it 2 years ago.

The Range: Eyelet Tops for Summer

Airy eyelet fabrics are one of my favorite spring/summer looks. White is, of course, the traditional fabric. But white is tough to wear when you have a toddler, so let’s go with navy this summer.
