Just like a schoolgirl pining after a first crush, j’adore pleated skirts. Luckily, this season’s pleated skirt, with variations in bright colors and fantastic patterns, feels miles away from its schoolgirl roots. American Apparel’s above-the-knee length version combines a figure flattering cut (great for you, regardless of personal architecture) with a stunning royal blue color. Feeling demure? Wear it with a white blouse cinched with a cummerbund belt. But if you’re feeling the fun, go grab a bright orange blouse and watch heads turn as you walk on by.
$54 at American Apparel.
