I have become completely obsessed with the spring trend of pleated skirts. It all started with my 805 Living spread that I worked on in February. I put the model in an Alice + Olivia hot pink chiffon pleated maxi skirt, and though that skirt is totally inappropriate for my life, I loved it!
Then, I saw these on Pinterest furthering my obsession even more….
Cut to a few weeks later and I’ve now seen them in every store in town, on WhoWhatWear, and featured in Spring Trends articles. Funny that I would decide that this is something I have to have when, a) I don’t even wear skirts that much, and b) they seem a little dressy for the life I lead (even when I am working/styling I don’t usually get that dressed up!) Anyway, I have been doing a lot of online shopping lately trying to find the “perfect” one (would prefer gray or beige to a bright, has to be chiffon, not wool, and midi, not maxi). Here’s what I’ve found so far…
This beauty from ASOS
The Alice + Olivia skirt that started it all, but in blue (pink is sold out)
And this one which is sold out!
I will continue to shop because I’ve now convinced myself that I will use it! I love the idea of making it more casual with just a t or sweatshirt…..
