Warmer winter weather in the northeast had me excited to break out some skirts. My look is inspired by one of my favorite runway shows, Marc Jacobs fall 2015 ready-to-wear collection. The collection features pleated skirts of all different muted hues and fabrics. One look that stood out to me was this floral pleated dress. I absolutely loved the patterning and ’50s feel of the length and silhouette.
When it comes to dresses and skirts, I find myself mostly reaching towards neutral and darker tones. So when I saw this skirt at Brooklyn Industries I knew it would fit right in with my wardrobe. This skirt has the pleats and floral patterns that I fell in love with from the Marc Jacobs collection; plus, it has these awesome pockets on the side. Who doesn’t love convenient pockets in skirts?
To stick with the 1950s style silhouette included in the collection, I paired the skirt with a black dolman top. The openness of the top makes this outfit super comfortable and breathable.
As far as shoes and accessories go, I completed my look with a pair of heels and a vintage Ted Lapidus envelope clutch that my grandmother gave to me. My grandmother and I bond over our love of fashion and its classics. She taught me that every Fashionista must have a few select “special” pieces in her collection.
Even though the holiday season may be “over” I feel that wintertime is a great excuse to dress more formally. The clutch also goes along with the looks that inspired me from the ready-to-wear collection.
