How to Wear Spring 2014′s Hottest Trend…Pleated Skirts

As spring approaches my excitement grows for the new fashion trends. Ladies there is much to be desired so listen up. While the pencil skirts are still on my favorite list say hello and loosen up with the flowy pleated skirt because it is hitting the fashion scene hard. From Ferragamo, to Zimmerman to Zara, all the designers from high budget to low have a pleated skirt ready at the stores. Here are my MUST HAVES pleated skirts of the season!

Coated Pleated Skirt; Zara - $79

Pleated Print Skirt; Zara - $59

Christopher Kane Print Knife Pleated Skirt; Nordstrom - $835.00

Michael Kors Pleated Wool Midi Skirt; Nordstrom - 1,295

Ok so let’s talk about what you can pair this up with. Because pleated skirts are loose flowing it is important to wear something up top that is form fitting to your body to avoid a “frumpy” look. A great look and another favorite trend for this spring are crop tops and they look great with these skirts as well if you are up to showing some skin. As for the bottom if you are one of those lucky women with height, have no worries and feel free to do what you like from flats to 4 inchers. BUT if you have a height issue like me, these skirts look best with a little to a lot of extra height. You better believe I will be rocking these skirts with a pair of knee high, high-heeled gladiators!

At last, an outfit post! I know I haven’t done one in a while. My inspiration for this look is ‘simple chic’ and the colour palette for all seasons - grey. I teamed this dull colour with my favourite floral print skirt. Its grey hues give the outfit a bit of ‘lift’ and a few chunky jewelry pieces don’t hurt.

It was an exceptionally windy day and this was by far the best close-up of me. Unfortunately, my eyes were closed because I was wincing my way through these shots hehe.





I can’t rave enough about my new Marc Jacobs clutch bag I recently got from The Outnet sale. It fits all my essentials - cash, cards, lipstick and phone. I love small bags. Good things do come in small packages :P

These Ferragamo pumps were in the wardrobe for far too long. I wore them too much at one point and they became slightly loose in the back. Finally got some heel grips so they fit much better now!

Snakeskin made its presence known in many Spring and Summer 2014 collections. Salvatore Ferregamo, Michael Kors, and Roberto Cavalli are just a few who featured snakeskin on the runway. The trend doesn’t show signs of stopping after summer. I am a big fan of prints and…
