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 :

It doesn’t have to be necessarily silk because nothing speaks elegance better than a classic white (or cream washed) shirt. It is an essential piece of our wardrobe whether we love it or not, whether we wore it just at work or try to fit it smartly in our daily looks.
