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 royal-approved brand).We looked through a plethora of pencil skirts and narrowed them down to nine pieces we believe deserve a spot in your closet.
