A classic shape for every woman is the high waisted pencil skirt. Joan from MadMen wears this often and makes a spectacular entrance every time.
It is great for showcasing curves and really grabs people's attention. Every woman should have one good pencil skirt either in denim or a neutral shade (tan, navy, grey, olive, tweed like Joan, or brown) in their closet. You can pair it with practically anything and know that you've "got your sexy back".
