I just returned from NYC where we went to the US Open. Such a fun time! Even better, it was actually cool ( I mean long sleeves at night cool) which got me in the Fall Into Fashion mode. When not at the Open we traversed the streets of New York looking for those fall looks.

Today’s look comes courtsey of the pleated skirt. I’ve been hesitant about this one since I’ve felt that pleats can make me look hippy but I’m going to change my mindset. But again it comes down to proportions. I found this silver pleated skirt at Zara that I plan on pairing with my JCrew cashmere shell in black and strappy sandals in red from Pedro Garcia. Pair the outfit with a long statement earrings like these from Ben-Amun and a gold cuff from Alexis Bittar

Silver not your thing. Try this pleated maxi skirt in gold by Alice and Olivia; or what about this Alice and Olivia pleated skirt in Sunburst for a little color. Try it with a heeled bootie in a neutral color such as this one from Dolce Vita in Merlot and this Misha Collection Adonia Bodysuit.
