This week, the morning posts will feature my wardrobe staples–the pieces that I cannot live without. These are the pieces that I reach for when I want to feel my best or don’t know what to wear. Let’s start with the black pencil skirt.
I used to be loyal to J.Crew pencil skirts, but when the hem on my last one shredded after fewer than ten wears, it was time to move on to something else. Halogen sells a solid, well-made pencil skirt for a very reasonable price. If you prefer a smoother look, they also make an un-seamed pencil skirt.
Another stylish, affordable option is this sleek skirt from Jones New York. Banana Republic also offers two nice choices, the first in ponte and the second in a cotton-blend. If you buy them today, they’re 40%-off with code GIFT.
