Spring/Summer 2013 Fashion Trend: Pencil Skirts
I don't think pencil skirts really ever go out of style, but they are certainly on-trend for this Spring and Summer. (Above: Christopher Kane; Oscar de la Renta; Roland Mouret; Tom Ford.) The great thing about a pencil skirt is that they are flattering on every body type. The key is to choose a length that is right for you. If you are short, make sure that the skirt hits right above your knees to elongate your legs. If you are longer, you should choose a length that hits right below your knees. While I'm sure you already have a pencil skirt in your closet, there are some really cute and unique patterned and colorful pencil skirts available right now.
