Style Guide: Chic Pleats

Pleated skirts are having a major fashion moment right now and it is no wonder—just look at how chic they are! On that note, if you have been hoping to explore new ways to wear your pleats, make sure you take tips from our latest Style Guide muse, who was spotted on the streets of Paris earlier this year. By pairing her black pleated skirt with a sleek camel-colored top, she has created a sophisticated ensemble that feels really fresh. (Note: this color combination is so stylish!) The addition of a few smart accessories—specifically, a chain choker necklace and a pair of two-toned brogue shoes—completes the look. We think the necklace is ultra chic, but we love the way her shoes give the feminine aspect of her ensemble a boyish twist. Inspired? Look inside today’s Style Guide for the key pieces needed to recreate this look.
