Splurge or Save: Pleated Skirt
School’s in session. A long pleated skirt can be worn in a number of ways: with a sheer blouse, a tight-fitted tank top, or loose cropped top. Add a bold clutch and ankle boots and you're ready to go. These skirts are romantic with their fluid movement and are seductive in a modest way. Céline’s Black Plongé Pleated Skirt is gorgeous and gives off that certain schoolgirl vibe that so many of us love to rock. Longing for the Céline skirt, but short on cash? Check out the nearly identical coated pleated skirt from Zara in navy blue. The Zara skirt is slightly shorter hitting higher on the calf, but it's every bit as classic.
