Consider these pencil skirt perks: they are long enough to keep you warm in winter and to cover your bare legs from touching the subway (ew) but they can also be as light and airy as a summer maxi dress. They can be your go-to date night-look to get all men taking a double take. And they can be layered to hide your bad body or butt day.
Don’t believe me? Here are 5 great examples to prove it.
