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

"Flare skirts all the way. They are super flattering on every body shape, cinching at the waist and hiding the hips… and I love that I can feel comfortable wearing them without worrying about how tight they are. I'm about to buy this Miss Wu skirt for the fall, so excited!" -Stephanie Kornblum, Public Relations Coordinator

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.
