You know how there are some seasons where clothing shopping doesn’t make you want to stick a fork in your face? Where, for once, the predominant trends are ones you actually want to wear?
I’m having one of those seasons. I’m loving the colours, the detailed sleeves and the wrap dresses, but the trend I’m most excited by is the pleated midi skirt.
My personal love affair with the garment began in 2015, when I bought a gold pleated one in New York — on a very good sale, to boot. It was so comfortable, flattering, low-key glam, and — most importantly for a party skirt — very swishy. I still feel amazing every single time I wear it.
This autumn/winter, I'm seeing similar takes on my skirt everywhere, and I'm not even mad. I'm just excited for everyone to join the cult, because the midi, in my opinion, doesn't discriminate.
