Pencil Me In

Donna Karan, Marc Jacobs, Marc Jacobs, Donna Karan, Marc Jacobs

While longer hemlines are still the major direction of Fall 11 (more on that later), the tail end of NYFW is harboring in the pencil skirt. Heavy hitters like Marc Jacobs and Donna Karan feature pencil skirts prominently. Jacobs’ pencil skirts – in bold polka dots, skins or scale-like embellishments – are set to a 40s theme. They balance out proportionately against oversized outerwear, boxy tops and peplums. Karan’s take on the pencil dips into the 50s, Grace Kelly style, with belted blazers on top for an hourglass shape. Either way, knee to mid length pencil skirts make their mark.
