J.Crew Double Serge Pencil Skirt

J.Crew’s Double Serge Pencil Skirt is supposed to be the most flattering skirt ever made. Transforms all women of all sizes instantaneously into tall, lean models. Of course I had to try it, despite my last unfortunate brush with a pencil skirt from J.Crew.

First up – Double Serge Pencil Skirt in Natural. This looked like a true white in the catalog, but in real life it’s more off-white and beige-ish.

Not very flattering, is it? Looks just like a plain white skirt. Mehh. So I thought, c’mon, this is a high waisted pencil skirt. You have to wear it in a high-waisted fashion to really get the appeal of it.

Eh. It’s better, but not great. I have to say everything I realized about me and pencil skirts holds true here. I got the Natural in my usual size. Not a fan.

Maybe Black works better?

Not really. I got the Black in a size down (don’t ask me why), but the fit wasn’t all that different. Definitely more flattering than the Natural, but alas, pencil skirts just do not look good on me. Get the Double Serge Pencil Skirt from J.Crew here for $98.
