The Editors Debate: Pencil Skirts vs. Fit 'n Flare

"Flared skirts and nipped-waist dresses are pretty much all I own, so there's absolutely no question where I stand. The extreme A-line silhouette makes your midsection look teeny-tiny and is the perfect foil for any curves you'd rather cover down below. And then, of course, there's the movement factor—circle skirts were basically made for dancing and spinning in!" -Elana Fishman, Senior Digital Editor

In my never-ending quest to stir up controversy at our office, I decided to ask yet another polarizing question to our editors. I like getting them to choose sides. Of course, since our editors pretty much only care about shopping and style, one must ask something about shoes, pants, or in this case, skirts. Today, nine of them picked sides between the body-conscious pencil skirt and the more free and easy flared skirt. Click through above to hear their answers and shop their favorite pieces.
