J. Crew Pencil Skirt Reviews: Double Serge vs. Super 120’s

I had the hardest time choosing between the No. 2 Pencil Skirts. The double serge wool is so nice and stretchy. Its thicker and definitely helps keep you warm when the weather cools off. On the other hand, the super 120’s is a great all-season skirt with a beautiful drape. Both skirts come in petite sizes and a variety of colors, including a beautiful neutral camel color.

From the front it’s obvious that the super 120’s skirt is a little bit shorter, but still work appropriate. I think this is my ideal skirt length. Unfortunately, while the super 120’s skirt fits at the waist, its too small in the thighs. I’ll need to size up to a 2P for this skirt. On the other hand, the double serge skirt fits my body type wonderfully. Ideally, it would be a little shorter, but I think I’ll leave it how it is for now.

There are no big differences in the side-view. The super 120’s skirt flares out a little more, be it good or bad.

So, which skirt is better? In the fall and winter I definitely prefer the extra thickness and coverage of the double serge skirt. The comfort just can’t be beat. The super 120’s skirt is a little sexier, and would be a great spring/ summer skirt, if the 2P does indeed fit. The verdict? I think I need both.
