More Pleats, Please!

Pleated skirts are one of fall's hottest trends! Blogger Bows & Sequins styles her rust-colored skirt with lace-up leopard heels and a round crossbody bag.

I’m working on a HUGE round-up of fall/winter trends (coming next week!) and one that can’t go unnoticed is the pleated skirt! Pleats, pleats, pleats. You’ll be seeing accordion-style pleats all over the streets. (Yes, I just did that on purpose. It’s 1AM in Paris as I type this, haha. #delirious) I picked up this skirt right before NYFW because I knew I could style it for the warm temps in NYC, but could definitely wear it well into the fall, too! I’m counting down the days until I can pair it with a chunky cream-colored sweater and ankle booties.

This rusty, burnt-orange color (Wow, way to explain it beautifully, Jess!) is always one of my fall favorites! Maybe we’ll call it toasted pumpkin instead? Sounds a bit more pretty. 😂

If you work in a creative office (especially in the fashion realm), dare I say you could wear a denim jacket, boxy jacketsuede moto, or even a bomber jacket over the top of this at work? Maybe swap the leopard lace-ups for a pair of sleek nude pumps, though.

Speaking of working in an office… Halfway through this shoot, I remembered that I was standing outside the building that a guy I used to date in New York works in. And it was lunch hour! 🙃🙃🙃 Thank goodness he didn’t walk out to me twirling around in a crop top and midi skirt, that sure would have been embarrassing.
