Remember a couple of years ago when pleated skirt were all the rage? They seemed to disappear for one year, and now they are back! For fall 2017, pleated fall skirts are hotter then hot; and I am thrilled!
I love pleated skirts for fall because they are a flattering silhouette on almost every body type. Pleated skirts can be dressed up for dinner, the theater, church, or date night. They can also be worn casually with street sneakers, flats, or sandals for a feminine daytime look. Love that!
Two years ago, pleated skirts were being shown in solid colors, and in prints. They were usually made from a polyester fabric. For fall 2017, pleated skirts are being shown in velvet, faux suede, and thick, autumnal fabrications. This metallic skirt I am wearing in this post is made from a thin, faux suede-like fabric which feels so luxurious. Love!
These photos were taken while I was in New York for fashion week. I wore this outfit on Sunday when I attended seven shows. The shows I attended that day were Francesca Liberatore, Dan Liu, Nina Tiari, Leanne Marshall, Rinat Brodach, Vivienne Hu, and Jared Zhang. Whew! It was a full day, I am not quite sure how I squeezed in any food! Room service is a life saver during fashion week!
I’m excited about this skirt because back home, I can wear it casually with a sweater and boots during the day, or I can dress it up with a black top and high heels for evening occasions. This will be my go-to skirt for fall!
These booties also happen to be a new favorite of mine. They are really comfortable, and kept me going all day long! The velvet is soft and the heel hits my foot in the right spot to give me a bit of arch support. I am looking forward to wearing these often during fall with skirts, dresses, and jeans.
The next item on my wish list is a velvet pleated skirt. I cannot wait to find the perfect one! Fingers crossed I find one in blue or burgundy. Wouldn’t that be fabulous! What do you think of the pleated skirt trend for fall 2017? Is this one you will be wearing?
Thanks for stopping by!
