Insomniac Sale Picks: Non-boring Pencil Skirts

*In this late-night feature – which will run on Tuesday and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

Joanna requested a few picks for pencil skirts that aren’t boring (!), so here we go:


Reveillon Pencil Skirt – was $168, now $49.95

Yep, you’ve got lace, sequins, and mesh in that skirt and it STILL doesn’t look over-the-top somehow. That pale dusty lilac is great for spring, and this could be dressed down with a simple white tee for weekend, paired with a solid sweater and chunky necklace for work, and polished with a crisp button-front for evening. Available in sizes 0 -14, as well as a few petite sizes. (This pencil skirt has a sequin panel and is available in sizes 12 – 24)

loft contrast stripe pencil skirt

Considerably less fancy but decidedly un-boring, this bold striped pencil skirt would make a fabulous staple. Pair it with a black graphic tee for a funky casual look or a bold floral for a fun print mix. Available in sizes 00 – 14. Also in petite and curvy fit (00 – 18). This skirt has much smaller stripes, but is available in 1X – 3X.

nic and zoe shine on skirt

Nic + Zoe Shine On Skirt – was $128, now $39.99

With an asymmetric hem and subtly shiny texture, this pencil skirt is far from basic. All you need is a simple sweater and funky statement necklace and you’ve got a ready-made, office-friendly outfit. Available in black, pale gray, and this purple-blue in sizes 2 – 16. Size availability varies by color.

rsvp ponte pencil skirt

RSVP Earla Ponte Pencil Skirt – was $55, now $38.99

And in case your definition of non-boring is just “not black or gray,” this simple, affordable ponte skirt comes in basic black but also dark red, plum, and this gorgeous hunter green. Available in sizes XS – XL. Size availability varies by color.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for pencil skirts that aren’t boring:

  1. Yoox – These are designer options so many will be spendy, but Yoox has amazing sales. This lace inset pencil skirt is about the same price as one from Banana Republic.
  2. Boden – Loads of gorgeous prints, colors, and textures, including this lovely metallic tweed.
  3. Anthropologie – You’re not likely to find a solid in the bunch. Get a load of this stripe/floral mashup design.
  4. Nordstrom – I tend to think of Nordstrom for basics, but they have some really fab pencil skirts now, like this sassy python print in regular and plus sizes.
  5. J.Crew – High prices, but gorgeous pencil skirt designs. This foiled print is amazing.
  6. And, of course, THRIFT STORES! Pencil skirts are eternal, and there will be some in prints, patterns, interesting colors and textures on the thrift racks. ( can help you locate stores near you.)
