Closet Staple: The Stretchy Pencil Skirt

Closet Staple: The Stretchy Pencil Skirt

This skirt is one of my closet newbies that I recently got from Express and have been wearing it on repeat lately at home and into the office. It's super soft and feels like you are wearing a sweater which is pretty much the best thing when its cold outside and you would rather be at home drinking hot cocoa than sitting at work all day ;) 

I'm not gonna lie, I have been a skeptic of super stretchy pencil skirts that resemble sweaters because I thought they could not be flattering on any body type. A couple of weeks ago I went into Express, and one of the women working there was actually wearing this skirt and it looked really cute. I wondered around the store until I found what looked like the same one and was surprised since it felt like a cross between a t-shirt and a sweater. I decided to try it on anyways and was beyond surprised at how it looked.

Here I paired it with a white t-shirt, printed flats, and a faux-leather jacket for a casual day running errands. I have also worn it to work with everything from a drapey blouse to a standard dress shirt. On colder days it pairs nicely with soft tights and heeled booties. I am wearing an extra small and definitely recommend sizing down if you are between sizes. It is a super stretchy knit and looks better a little on the tighter side than loose.



  1. Love this! So versatile. Does it wash well?
