9 Pencil Skirts to Add to Your Closet This Spring

Pencil skirts are a great wardrobe essential that elevates any look. While you can easily dress them down with white sneakers like a Superga pair (these bad boys are a Kate Middleton fave), you can also make them nighttime-appropriate with some stylish pumps from brands like Sarah Flint (another royally-approved brand) or, our personal favorite, Stuart Weitzman. Whether you're looking to refresh your workwear outfits or need transitional pieces for the new season, these stylish pencil skirts are a must-have for spring. We looked through a plethora of pencil skirts and narrowed them down to nine pieces we believe deserves a spot in your closet. From skirts made from timeless fabrics to ones that block out the cold, scroll through to see our top picks.
