Women's Pencil Skirts: An Iconic Classic That Never Goes Out of Style

Ever since its introduction in 1940, the pencil skirt has been turning heads. Flaunted by famous pin-up girls, celebrities, and working women everywhere - nothing cradled and flattered the female shape quite like a figure-flaunting pencil skirt. Today, that sentiment still rings true.

From long and short styles - to florals and prints - to denim, tweed, sequin, velvet, faux leather, knit and every other style under the sun - New York & Company has a look that's perfect for long days at the office, dinner parties, or lunch with friends. See all of our styles, from elegant to casual, for the perfect addition to any wardrobe:

- Unique silhouettes. From pencil skirts that feature symmetrical faux-wrap fronts and interesting slit details for a timeless style statement, to those with opaque mesh trim for a sensual look, to crinkled "paper bag" waist accents with attached belt - your choices are virtually limitless.

- Extended lengths. Long pencil skirts give you a more formal, sophisticated look - without sacrificing on those ultra-feminine finishing touches. Sitting well below the knee, these lovely skirts come in zip-up styles or pull-on silhouettes for a sense of ease.

- High-waist pencil skirts. Create curves or accentuate the ones you have with a pencil skirt that sits high above the waist. Keep it simple with a flat front and hidden zippers - or elevate your look by choosing embellishments like medallion-adorned, gold-tone polished buttons for a refined finishing touch.

- Denim. Perfect for casual days, weekends, or those occasions where jeans just won't do, denim pencil skirts are always in fashion. Choose from standard blues, to faded washes, to on-trend camouflage prints and more.
