J. Crew No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Graphic Print

Hi Everyone!

I received the J. Crew No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Graphic Print yesterday.  I really like this print.  A big thank you to ajc who featured a picture of the skirt in one of her fabulous fall preview posts.  Here are a few IRL pictures of the skirt:



A closer view of the print:


I'm sure that this print won't work for everyone, but I really like it.  What do you think of the J. Crew No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Graphic Print?  Do tell!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I haven't seen this skirt anywhere yet - this is my first time seeing it. First impression - you are far braver than I!! I can pile on the bulky, costumey jewels, but patterns really scare me! I have to stick to my "no more pencil skirts" rule for now - I don't even work! I know you will enjoy it! Have a great weekend! ;)

    1. Suzy: I think that this skirt is part of the next rollout. I placed a preorder with my amazing online VPS. Patterns typically scare me too, but I really like this one!

      Thanks SO much for being here! Happy weekend to you too!

  4. I'm not really feeling this skirt for me. But it's nice to see they matched up the back seam. It could've been all crooked and wonky. Are the side seams matched up? I wonder if they compromised the sides to make sure you didn't get crazy stares about the back.

    1. audreybella: I knew that this pattern would not work for everyone the moment that I saw it. It's really bold. You're right, the back seam is matched up. The side seams are too.

  7. It's very Bauhaus, not for me but for pattern lovers quite something.

  8. I love the print! But do you think the pattern makes for a bit of a target on the backside? I'd be inclined to wear a sweater or shirt over to minimize the effect. Overall though, it's a real head turner of a skirt. Thanks for the review!!

    1. Closet Crisis: me too! I totally agree with you that the pattern "makes for a bit of a target on the backside." I would stay away from this skirt if I tucked my shirts in. Since I typically wear a button down under a sweater, or a belted shirt, I think that my butt will be covered, LOL! You're very welcome!

  10. Wow. I love the colors and the fabric seems lovely and smooth. I actually think I might like it. It is not something I would gravitate towards, but it is eye catching and could look very sophisticated if yu paired it with the right pieces. Enjoy it!

  12. Very mod, I like it! I was just in the store in Charleston the other day and didn't see this. Is this an on-line only item?

    1. biscuitsandnavy: I totally agree that this skirt is very mod. I'm not sure if the skirt has been officially released on the website. I did a preorder with my amazing retail VPS, and the skirt shipped the same day she placed the order.

  15. Looks great, and is super flattering, which I wouldn't necessarily expect a bold print to be (i.e., could have 'target on the backside,' as someone said, but I don't get that effect at all). Sounds like it might be a year-round choice with the fabric. Great pick!

    1. Wendy: Awwwww, thanks SO much for the sweet compliment. I really appreciate it! I totally agree with your point about the "target" on the rear. I was expecting this skirt to accentuate the backside, but I am so glad that it doesn't!
