It's officially the seasonal equivalent of a Sunday night. Summer is starting to fade and autumn is right around the corner. Of course, that means we'll be thinking about transitional wardrobes. These seven plus size pencil skirts are going to take your style from summer to fall seamlessly and fashionably. From prints to solids, the options are endless for this versatile piece that many would consider a staple, and it's going to help you move between seasons.
Pencil skirts have been a major trend for some time now, and whether you're plus or straight size, rocking the fitted look is perfect for anyone. While clearly versatile size-wise, pencil skirts are also one of the most versatile pieces in any wardrobe. They're perfect for transitioning from your day-time office look to your night time going out wardrobe.
As a plus woman, for some time, I believed that I wasn't allowed to wear a pencil skirt. However, my desire to own roughly five of them now, comes from the stunning representation that has come about in plus-size fashion. With brands expanding their size range, exclusively plus-size retailers creating plus-inclusive sizing, and a previously limited market experiencing a surge, pencil skirts are now for everyone, and they look bomb on any body.
If you haven't experienced the power of a plus size pencil skirt yet, brace yourself because these are going to be your new transitional staples.
