Pleated skirts are everywhere this fall and I’m so glad I hung on to this one I picked up last year! I styled it on the blog last October with a sequin bomber jacket and pulled it out of my closet again to wear to an event at the Ritz a few weeks ago. This time, I still went with a monochromatic look, but paired it with a thin turtleneck and my new lucite-heeled sock booties.
I always joke that Steve Jobs is my style icon… When the temperatures drop into the 60’s and below, you can almost always find me in a black turtleneck of some sort. When I saw this ribbed turtleneck bodysuit, I knew it would be perfect to pair with all of my high-waisted skirts and jeans for months to come.
For accessories, I went with two of my French favorites! I picked up this pearl-studded belt at Claudie Pierlot when I was in Paris in May and I love how it breaks up the black-on-black look a little bit. My Polène bag has quickly become my go-to this fall… It’s the perfect sized satchel, I love the shape, and the top-handle is super on-trend this season, too!
Whenever I’m asked to describe my style, I never really know what to say. I always dress to my mood, which naturally changes quite often. Sometimes what I’m wearing is super feminine, sometimes it’s pretty preppy, sometimes it’s a little more edgy, sometimes it’s overtly colorful, and sometimes it’s a little bit extra. And sometimes just kind of basic, too.
But I actually think this outfit sums up my style philosophy fairly well… I tend to keep it classic and mix in a few of-the-moment pieces to give my outfit a little twist.
I always love to hear how people answer this question… How would you describe your style?! Let me know in the comments below!
