A No.2 Pencil...Skirt!

The pencil skirt is a wardrobe essential! The pencil skirt was first born around 1908, but it wasn’t until 1940 that the pencil skirt we know today really became part of the fashion scene. Christian Dior created the first true pencil skirt. Grace Kelly, Elizabeth Taylor, Marilyn Monroe, Katherine Hepburn, Lauren Bacall, Audrey, and other Hollywood stars often wore pencil skirts at the height of its popularity. And, of course, Coco Chanel sported a pencil skirt on countless occasions. The pencil skirt has over gone changes through the decades: in the 1960s the pencil skirt went mini and didn’t make a comeback till the 1980s, but only in the corporate world. The pencil skirt was mostly worn in the office in the 1990s as well; it wasn’t until the 2000’s that the pencil skirt became all the rage again. The pencil skirt is feminine, slimming, timeless, and a great look for anyone! So if you don’t have one in your wardrobe, run out and buy one!
