Ever since I got my hands on this cheetah pencil skirt, I’ve been yearning to wear this outfit. But with temperatures in the high 80s every day, I couldn’t find the right moment to wear this wool skirt until yesterday. Even though it got a little warmer in the afternoon, the morning started out crisp and just cool enough that I could pull off this layered look.

This skirt was generously given to me by my friends at Karen Kane to review, and I’m already looking forward to wearing it a million different ways all season. It’s a made of soft wool/polyester blend and fully lined, so it was actually quite comfortable to wear (unlike some itchy wool pencil skirts I’ve had in the past). It’s a little stretchy, and it’s a pull-on skirt — no zippers or buttons — which makes it look sleek and smooth with shirts tucked in.

Just like with the Karen Kane jeans, I was worried that the skirt might be too long or too tight because pencil skirts are not an item I would normally purchase without trying on. But it fit perfectly, and it’s extremely flattering. I can see myself wearing this with tights, blazers, sweaters, etc. It’s such a versatile piece. I know I’ll have it in my closet for years to come.

So far, I’ve been really impressed with the quality construction and fit of the Karen Kane items I’ve reviewed, and I love that many of their clothes are made in the USA. It’s obviously important in our current economic situation to hire as many American workers as possible, and I can definitely support a company who makes the effort to do that.
