Nice and narrow and tapers at the hem.


I bought mine a bit looser to avoid a tight fit across the bottom like it does in this photo.

looks as great from behind as it does from the front. Back vent allows for easy walking.

I came across this fantastic skirt while shopping with a client a few weeks ago. It was so fabulous in fact, I went back to buy it for myself the very next day! A well fitting black pencil skirt is a basic every women should have as a staple in her wardrobe. It’s always in style, a good separate for coordinating with just about anything and adds a polished look to any outfit. As you can imagine, I am often on the lookout for a good pencil skirt for my clients. This skirt from Banana Republic is high waisted and tapers narrower at the hem, which gives the illusion of a longer leaner silhouette. Who wouldn’t want that? It’s also cut and constructed well with a vented back hem, allowing for unrestricted walking so you get the narrow look without having to hobble.  One of the best features about this pencil skirt besides the great fit is that it’s constructed in a flattering Ponte knit. The stretch fabric has a nice heavy weight to it which helps conceal any lumps or bumps. I recommend this skirt be hemmed at the knee as pictured here, and it will look flattering on anyone, no matter your body size or shape. Oh, and did I mention it’s super comfortable to wear! The Banana Republic black Ponte pencil skirt is available online and comes in regular and petite sizing. If you’ve never ordered from them on-line before you should give it a try. My online orders arrive fast. Spend over $50 and shipping is free and comes with a prepaid shipping label making returns a breeze. You can also combine orders from GAP and Old Navy at the same time, saving you time and money on shipping. Another tip, if you haven’t already signed up for Banana Republic emails do!
