Have you seen British Vogue's 'The Catwalk Edit' on sale with the February issue? Ooooooooooweeeee there is some colour coming our way this spring!! Brights, pastels, neons and colour blocking galore. I'm in heaven. Pleats sashayed down the runway at Christopher Kane, Proenza Schouler, Celine, Dries Van Noten and many other shows so it's safe to say that investing in a bold pleated skirt is a good decision for spring 2014; they are not going anywhere soon. Look for mid-length in a metallic or crisp pure white fabric for truly modern appeal.
This Whistles skirt has been a favourite and a summer staple of mine for three years now. I dress it it up and down depending on the occasion. I've even worn it belted as a mini-dress at the beach. Here I've layered it with two J.Crew shirts and a pair of little grey ankle boots that have been idling away at the back of my closet. I can't tell you how much I enjoy it when I can recycle a key piece in my wardrobe from season to season (that's why I'm looking just a teeny big smug in that last pic).
