Pencils Sharpened!

       Every woman needs a black pencil skirt in her wardrobe, she just does. They add effortless chic and polish to any outfit! Imagine how cute it would look with a chambray skirt and a statement necklace for brunch on weekends and then fast forward to Monday with a crisp white blouse and a string of pearls. I own three of the four of these skirt. I have yet to snap up the kiyonna skirt, but it is on "the list".

     What I love about the Igigi Monroe Skirt is that it tapers in at the bottom, creating a very sexy hourglass shape whilst not highlighting my full middle. It is lined and is very comfortable. And frankly, it is a great price. I ordered mine from Lucy and saved on the duty and shipping, seeing that Lucy is Canadian. However, with Igigi, remember to go down a solid size if not two. They are very generously cut. As a full 22W, I fit and thrive in an 18. 

     The Cult of California Harlow Midi Skirt is very comfortable, in that it is made from athletic stretch fabric. This also makes it quite curve hugging. Moreover, it comes with built in shorts, making this a perfect skirt for us folks with chub rub. (Chub Rub= thighs that rub together causing a nasty rash) I would wear this on a weekend, or in a relaxed office environment, as it is a very casual fabric. The elastic waist eliminates any sort of muffin top one may have. They fit true to size, so as a 22W, I fit a 3X. Ole!

     I chose to include the Kiyonna skirt because frankly, the plus size garment industry is obsessed with ruching. They would ruche a hanky. However, in their defense, ruching skims over all sorts of lumps and bumps. If you are hesitant to embrace a pencil, as you feel your figure would not be flattered by it, try this skirt. It is very flattering and has an elasticated waist. With Kiyonna, as a 22W, I fit a 3X

     Lastly, here is the Talbots pencil. I find that it has more of an A-line shape than that of a pencil, but it can easily be altered. This is the perfect skirt for you if you work in a formal office environment! I have had mine for seasons and the lining and wool makes it an excellent staple. Also, the wool drapes over curves, which again is a great feature for those who want to balance out an ample middle. It has a partially elasticated waist, which makes it a key piece to wear after rich holiday meals! Talbots fits true to size, so no shenanigans with sizing, here!

Here is the list!
