As seen on Zoe Burden on Cashmere Mafia, the black pencil skirt is a style staple. I am especially fond of this skirt paired with a vibrant colored cropped cardigan (purple or magenta come to mind), sexy camisole (lace is a must!) and killer pumps.
Moschino, "High waisted pencil skirt", $675, Net-A-Porter
If you're ballin' on a budget and refuse to pay $675 for a skirt (no matter how fabulous it may be), you can get a more affordable (and still stylish) version here.
