  Pencil skirt is like a bottled water lovelies! It's a basic piece that never goes out of fashion, details are added or removed but the base stays the same. It is a slim fitting skirt with a straight and narrow cut. Generally the hem falls to, or just below, the knee and is tailored for a close fit. It's name comes from its shape: long and slim.

 It was the French designer Christian Dior who introduced the pencil skirt in the late 1940s,using the term H-line to describe its shape. It quickly became very popular, particularly for office wear.
