As a curvy girl with full child bearing hips, I purchase more pencil skirts than anything else (you’ve seen my cobalt blue one). I feel like a pencil skirt shows off my curvy hips in a sexy and chic way. So, if you feel like you can’t wear a pencil skirt because your hips are too big, I am here to tell you that you can. Omit what some magazines and stylist tell you. A pencil skirt on a plus size body is a sexy thing.

If you don’t have one in your closet, here are a few options for you:

1. Faux Leather Pencil Skirt, Torrid $44, sizes 12-24
3. Gray Stripe Block Skirt, Dorothy Perkins, about $40, size 2-18/20
4. Zippered Denim Skirt, Lane Bryant
6. Lace Back Pencil Dress, Shape FX $64, Sizes 14W-24W  My Favorite
7. Zippered Stretch Twill Skirt, Ralph Lauren $95, sizes 14W-22W
2. Sequin Pencil Skirt, Lane Bryant $89.50, sizes14-28
5. Animal Print Pencil Skirt, Liz Claiborne $74.40, sizes 14W-20W
