One of my favorite colors to wear, especially during the Fall, is this deep, rich wine color. It is such a beautiful and striking tone that pairs beautifully with my skin tone. The added bonus is that like many of the Fall color palette, it’s highly versatile and can be worn a lot of different ways. So naturally as I was browsing online, I stopped in my tracks at this stunning pleated skirt from Modcloth. I not only loved the color, but I also thought the slight sheen that the skirt has made it look even more luxurious. Once I got it in my hands, I was not disappointed. The garment was a keeper!
Pleated skirts are a great Fall transition piece. I feel like I say the word “versatility” a lot in my posts but I think that’s a really important component when purchasing clothes. I want to be able to wear the same piece multiple times and in different ways for various occasions. You gotta get your money’s worth, right? I decoded to style this skirt for a more casual weekend look with a chambray top and leopard print accents. However, it was really a toss up on which way I wanted to build this outfit. In one pile, I had a light blush sweater and matching blush pumps. In the other, I had a black moto jacket and booties. And I could have probably come up with more combinations! The key is to make the most of your clothes so that you can look stylish without breaking the bank.

This skirt is everything 😍😍😍
Kristine, I love the look. I enjoyed your write up. Because of you, I have learned how to shop in my closet. You have also given me so many ideas on how to use leopard print. Everything you wear is a winner in my book. That skirt is just beautiful.
Thank you so much Judy!
