Perfect pleats

I've seen so many women around New York wearing bright pleated skirts. They're so breezy and beautiful! I just found one at Zara, and this one, above, is from Topshop. Isn't it cute how she wears it with a belt?

My current infatuation are breezy pleated skirts and this color is amazing! Also a huge fan of belts. I have a long torso and belts help to add curves and a "line break" on my body. :) Thanks for sharing Jo!

I'm wearing it today for the first time and I LOVE it!

Veralynn said...

I love her shoes and how they tie in with the belt! It's a perfect go-to outfit.

Nomadic D. said...

I love that outfit! And yes, the belt is such a cute touch. That blue is such a great color too, though I looked at the topshop website and it says it's a maternity skirt?! wha? Looks like it doesn't matter, but still I thought that was odd...

Just yesterday I discovered her blog and put it on my blogroll :-D Mostly because of that skirt as well!

I love the blue - looks so summery without veering into pastels - and you could probably wear it in the autumn, too...
Lovely!

rebecca s. said...

very flattering feminine fit! and that color would be really pretty on you.

oh, lovely day! said...

this skirt is just delightful! it would be especially wonderful on this unusually warm day we are having!
my only problem with pleats is how long it takes to iron them back to their original form!

Stunning look!

toridawn said...

Thanks for posting this! I've been seeing this picture around and wondering where that skirt was. I just ordered it from topshop (it's marked down to boot)! BTW, it's a maternity skirt, which threw me off for a moment, but, looking closely in the picture you've posted, looks like she's wearing it backwards...like a subtle fishtail hem! Brilliant.
