Effortlessly feminine and swaying with the shift of a hip, a pleated skirt is a summer staple. I love this Topshop one, especially for it’s black and white sporty belt detail. I usually go tight and cropped with this skirt, but here it’s worn with a light-as-air Alexander Wang shirt that opens in the back. I love the way the whole look moves, with fabric shifting and swaying any which way. I topped the look off with Celine heels, but I could have easily gone with sneakers for a daytime look. I like to contrast thin, light fabrics with the structure of my Diane Von Furstenberg leather. I bought this when I was around 13 on a trip to New York. And it still fits! A good investment is timeless.
My tip for buying leather: Wait until you find the perfect one. It’s better to save up and buy something in good quality that you love, because then it will last you a lifetime.
