Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. Many thanks to this week’s TPS guest poster, Stephanie from Adventures in the Stiletto Jungle.
I like to think of the past few years as the J.Crew renaissance. After a few years of ho-hum clothes, they are suddenly turning out styles so perfect that big name designer boutiques are now stocking capsule J.Crew lines. How crazy is that? Jenna Lyons, J.Crew’s President and Executive Creative Director, deserves a retail gold medal.
And, really, we’re all the winners in J.Crew resurgence. The stylish, yet affordable, professional options from J.Crew just keep getting better. One of my absolute favorite pieces from the new Fall collection is the J.Crew No. 2 Pencil Skirt. This skirt is so well thought out that it’s practically impossible to find a single style fault with it. The double-serge wool construction is substantial enough for winter wear and will smooth out little figure flaws without the aid of your trusty Spanx. The length is great for the office and exceptionally flattering. Plus, it comes in 6 of those rich, beautiful colors that J.Crew is known for — from basic black and acorn (a neutral beige) to vibrant flame and spicy gold.
I love the look of a well-made pencil skirt paired with a simple, solid color button down shirt. But, this iconic skirt shape also pairs well with sweaters, shells and blazers for the office. I’m sure many of you already have a go-to black pencil skirt, so why not pick up this skirt in a color to pair with neutral shirts and sweaters this Fall? The No. 2 Pencil Skirt is available for $120.00 at J.Crew. No. 2 pencil skirt in double-serge wool
