The clean, simple lines of this straight-cut skirt or pencil dress are flattering and versatile! But many pencil skirts for women are form-fitting, have revealing slits, or are shorter than you feel comfortable wearing. 

At the Main Street Exchange, we offer a variety of modest skirts and dresses so you can enjoy a beautiful and modest wardrobe that expresses your style. 

Any skirt that has a straight, narrow cut is considered a pencil skirt. Many pencil skirts fall just above or below the knee, but they can also be midi or even maxi length. 

Pencil dresses are similar to pencil skirts: narrow dresses with tailored, close fit. 

We offer a variety of pencil skirts for women including: 

  • Denim pencil skirts
  • Colored denim pencil skirts such as khaki, black, burgundy, white, and rose
  • Knit skirts, including black pencil skirts, and grey pencil skirts
  • Black lace pencil skirt
  • Black knit pencil dress

Pencil skirts and pencil dresses look excellent with loose or flowy tops, including: 

  • Flowy, feminine blouses
  • Graphic tees 
  • Button-down shirts for a formal, classic look
  • Smocked blouses
  • Chunky sweaters

Here’s how to style our women’s pencil skirts: 

  • Formal occasions: Try a black pencil skirt with a tucked-in button-down shirt for a classic, formal look. Or, try a skirt or pencil dress in a fun color and wear a flowy blouse. Add a belt and some heels! 
  • Casual occasions: Try a denim skirt - classic blue, khaki, or even a black denim pencil skirt. Add a graphic t-shirt, floral top, v-neck tee, or embroidered tee. Pair with some stylish sneakers.

These clean, modern skirts aren’t just for the office. Whether you’re going to a worship service, brunch, an evening out, or just running errands, you’ll enjoy this timeless wardrobe staple.
