Best Trends Forever – Sharpen Your Pencils

BTF pencil skirt

This #TBT we’re celebrating the sharpest skirt in your closet with another one of our Best Trends Forever, the pencil skirt! Amazing with heels and a crisp button-down, your #1 go-to work skirt gained popularity well before women were taking charge in the board room. Early styles designed by Christian Dior popped up in the 1940s but the most memorable to some of us may be the 80s version when the working girl look really took shape paired with large shoulder-padded jackets. Luckily we narrowed our sights and have made the sleeker version of the style a staple since then. You’ll be seeing the pencil skirt pop up in our Fall Rosters starting later in the summer, but until then, pop some in your BattleShop closet and see if other shoppers share your flair for this popular trend!

The original version of the pencil skirt via Christian Dior.
