Halogen Seamed Pencil Skirt ($69, also in petite)

I’ve spoken before about my love for this pencil skirt.  The material is a good weight, and the skirt wears beautifully.  It’s an affordable piece that every woman can love.

Need wool?  Banana Republic has a lightweight skirt for just $58.  Mango also offers a nice wool-blend pencil.

Black is a great basic, but if you need other colors, I have suggestions.  I love grey pencil skirts for another neutral option.  This Alfani skirt is a nice choice (especially for $29).  Love color?  This WHBM skirt in green is drop dead gorgeous (also in petite).  The Halogen skirt also comes in a lovely blackberry.

Looking to upgrade?  Hugo Boss is always my brand of choice.  For something more in the $100+ range, I like this Elie Tahari skirt.

    Am I just ridiculously frugal? I make 95k and will only buy business pencil skirts from LOFT when they’re on sale for around $20. I wonder if my co-workers think my clothes look cheap. In no way is $69 for a skirt affordable to me.

      I think everyone has a spending budget for clothing, regardless of income. I make less than $50k and would easily pay 100+ for a good pencil skirt, but I love clothes!

    • LS says:

      Do your $20 skirts hold up? Mine usually fall apart after one season, if they last that long. That’s why I started buying clothes that cost more upfront. The long term value is actually cheaper.

      Along the same lines, the older I get, the less time I want to spend shopping for trends, the more time I want to spend with friends and family. I don’t want to mess around with shopping all the time.
