Pencil skirts are lifesavers, sent from the fashion gods. The office staple is slimming and leg-lengthening, and it matches every blouse or blazer you throw on top. But, if you don't work in corporate, it can come across as stuffy and mundane. Good thing there are so, so many more ways to wear it beyond the 9-to-5. In fact, the skirts we've picked aren't even meant to be worn inside work's walls.
From a checked style with a thigh-high slit to an all-over-beaded number, these pencil skirts are definitely not for the cubicle. Dress it down with a slouchy sweatshirt for brunch or jazz it up with a crop top for a night out - just don't wear it to the office.
