While I usually shy away from super feminine shapes, this voluminous skirt from Simple Retro has got me ready to embrace new silhouettes for fall. I often sprinkle pieces from this NYC-based brands in my wardrobe. You may recall this pleated skirt and slip dress from previous posts. All their pieces are made from reworked patterns, so it has a vintage feel without actually feeling old. If you know what I mean.

Skinny stripes in harvest shades are appropriately fall, and I love roughening up feminine skirts with a leather jacket. Because every look needs a bit of edge, right?

    I’m not a huge fan of a skirt with so much volume either but this looks great on you. Love the way you threw in some leather and lace.

    Simple Retro sounds so fabulous! I love retro looks but always struggle to wear them because they feel so out of date. This skirt definitely has a current edge to it and is so wearable!

    I just love how you styled this retro skirt! It looks amazing with a leather jacket and a bralette underneath; feminine and edgy at the same time. Thanks so much for inspiration!
