It’s the power of fashion to transform textile memories into something we desperately want. Think about the 70’s craze, velvet or even more banal: white sneakers. Trends have this magical ability to show us a thousand creative ways to wear something that we might already have in our closets. And here comes a new fashion darling into play: The Pleated Skirt.
This type of skirt wasn’t included in my Fall Trend Report because it needed a space on it’s own. Gone are the days where pleats where made for grannys or school kids, highly associated with something the modern woman wouldn’t wanna wear. But thanks to fashion’s creativity and with a little Gucci power (surprise surprise. Not.) the pleated skirt is back for good.
Found my perfect black pleats at Zelle Studio, a british online shopping destination dedicated to timeless essentials. What I love most about Zelle Studio is the fact that all of their designs are produced in a small quantity, what makes every piece even more special! And if this modern retailer provides us not only with high-quality basics but also with uber sophisticated pleated skirts, that can be worn in so many ways, how could you say no!? Honestly this exclusive skirt miraculously works with flats, sneakers and heels. It looks good with oversized tops or camisoles aswell as with chunky knits tucked in. Oh how I love versatility…
There’s nothing left to say but: Pleats, please!
One more thing: If you’re in London during the London Fashion Weekend (22.9-25.9) make sure to visit Zelle at the Saatchi Gallery to take a closer look at their fantastic designs.
