I know, you were going to say pencil skirt. Yes, it's true, it does go with everything but you might also consider a black leather skirt. "Oh no," you think, "they're so punk rock chick." And in bygone years they had a bad girl reputation; nothing wrong with that, but the newer incarnations of black leather skirts are softer, more feminine styles and they do go with everything. An A-line style flatters everyone but I'm loving this slightly gathered one. Can't quite imagine yourself walking down the street in it? Picture yourself in your favorite ensemble and then switch out whatever's on the bottom for the skirt. It works, right? Think girly: fluffy angora sweaters or lace camisoles. Feeling a little rock glam? Pair with stripes and a few studs for good measure. Office appropriate? Yes! With a little blazer and a bow blouse, so elegant and edgy librarian. Dressing up? Add some sequins or beautiful applique. Funky mix? Bold gingham works. This skirt goes so many ways, it might just become the new workhorse in your closet.
