Women's Pencil Skirts
Among all the beautiful women's skirts you'll find at Nordstrom, there's always a great selection of pencil skirts: those distinctive, close-fitting, curve-loving designs that flatter every figure. Why are they called pencil skirts? Because their shape is long and slim like a pencil—not to mention super-sharp! While the traditional length for a pencil skirt is at or just below the knee, today's styles range from short to long, and Nordstrom has them in every length. To create that classic lean silhouette yet allow for easy walking and movement, pencil skirts typically feature one or more slits—usually modest but sometimes more dramatic, especially for long pencil skirts. And speaking of dramatic, you bet Nordstrom has leather pencil skirts, and lots of faux-leather options, too. Whether you're looking for a timeless black pencil skirt or something more colorful—like bright red or multicolored tweed or a bold animal print—you're sure to find just what you're after. And for a casual take on a traditionally dressy skirt, be sure to check out our big selection of denim pencil skirts.
