There’s one fashion trend this fall that is just popping up EVERYWHERE on the ol’ blogosphere. I think most (if not all) of my favorite bloggers have featured it in their outfit posts at one point.. and I am 100% on board. Maybe even obsessed, a little. Maybe.
FALL 2011 FASHIONSPIRATION:
A longer, pleated skirt, usually paired with a cute blouse and a braided, tucked belt.
Sigh. I loves it.
|For example, THIS absolute amazingness from A Beautiful Mess.|
I looked through my closet and blog archives only to discover that I own nothing even remotely close to this skirt. Last fall, it was all about dresses, or shorter skirts paired with tights. The longer skirts that I do own are too professional for class (let’s face it, on days where I show up in even the most casual dress, I field questions of “oh! You look nice! Where are you off to today?” from everyone I know.. as if I don’t wear dresses all.the.time.), or.. well, just ugly.
So, next on the thrifting list (and hopefully I’m going tomorrow): a longer pleated skirt! It’s obvious that this is a must-have item for this fall. Still don’t believe me? Well, maybe you’ll believe the experts:
From Kendi of Kendi Everyday, paired with a nicer top and some adorable pumps:
From my absolute favorite styler of this skirt, Megan of Feathers and Freckles, who repeatedly knocks this look out of the park. I love how she makes it work with anything– from boots, to wedges, to a casual t-shirt and flats:
From Tania of What Would a Nerd Wear (love her blog’s name, too!):
Slightly different, but similar, from Elizabeth of Delightfully Tacky:
Adorably ’50s, from Keira of A Pretty Penny, whose outfit here first caught my eye and kept me on the lookout for the trend coming from all my other favorite blogs:
And one last one from Elsie of A Beautiful Mess:
So, there you have it, my current obsession/ Fall Fashionspiration! Hopefully coming soon from Musings as well. Which beautiful blogger do YOU think styled the look best?
