Alright, onto Day Two of spring trends! You’d probably never know it by looking at me, but I love when fashion turns toward prim and ladylike. This is no exception. Pleated skirts are back! And they are bristling with the sunny optimism of the 1950s.
Seven Days of Spring Trends
Shown at Erdem, Prada, and Aquilano e Rimondi:
And at Chloé, Carmen Marc Valvo, and Céline:
Notice that the skirt lengths are conservative and the pleats full; and they’re often paired with something boxier on top. My favorite is the one from Aquilano—I love it head-to-toe, from dress to belt to shimmery shoes!
Aaand if you stay ahead of the trend by buying a pleated skirt now, you can wear it with one of the prim toppers you bought this fall.
