Fashion Crush – Pleated Skirts

With the launch of Christopher Kane’s collection for Versus, this trend really started kicking-off early last year and kept getting stronger over the fall and winter of 2010. Now with just a couple of weeks apart from 2012, we are still into this trend no matter if we’re talking about the mini “school-girl-like” pleated skirt, the maxi version or even the midi length one – a true statement piece for fall and winter days.

The variety of lengths and textures, only confirm this item as a must, being so functional and working in so many combinations.

There are so many beautiful such skirts that it was quite hard to make a selection and what I finally did was to split my choices into two, designer choices first and most affordable Asos options second  :


I used : Rag & Bone – Ezra pleated leather mini skirt ; J.W. Anderson – Pleated wool kilt ; Christopher Kane – Pleated silk-blend lamé skirt ; Halston Heritage – Knife-pleat georgette skirt ; Alexander McQueen – Pleated wool-felt mini skirt ; Halston Heritage – Accordion-pleated chiffon maxi skirt all from Net A Porter.


I liked : A|Wear Animal Pleated Skirt ; Whistles Pleated Carrie Skirt ; Coast Coralie Pleated Maxi Skirt . 

To get a little more inspired let’s see how the fashionistas love to wear this skirts on the city streets :


And of course a little bit of celebrity inspiration :


Let me know what you think ? Do you own a pleated skirt ?

Alexa Chung – Youthful & Chic in Christopher Kane

Last night, was also a big night in the UK, as the 2011 British Fashion Awards took place at The Savoy Hotel, in London. Walking the Blue Carpet at this event, looking fresh and sparkly, was the always cute model, turned TV presenter, Alexa Chung.


Her Christopher Kane ’60s style dress, with a structured shape and crystal embellished top, was featured in the designer’s Spring 2012 Collection. She chose to accessorize this youthful dress, with a non-conventional pair of Charlotte Olympia Kitty heels. As for the hair, Alexa opted for a little diversion on her trademark long bob hairstyle, with a longer fringe and a bushier crown.


Were you impressed by this look ? :)
