her ensemble: box-pleat mini

Box pleat mini, boyfriend knit, ankle strap pumps, Prada clutch, slouchy knit
The classic box-pleat skirt in mini and midi lengths have been represented strongly in the street-style scene these past few years and rightly so. They are much more than just a pretty skirt. Its timeless silhouette carries it through the seasons. As a transitional piece, the skirt can be worked in numerous ways. Layer it up with tights during autumn/winter or sport it on its own during spring/summer, the skirt can be adapted according to the elements.

Further demonstrating its versatility, the pleated skirt easily goes from day wear into night. Contrast it with a leather biker jacket to down play its femininity or celebrate its peppiness with a delicate blouse. The woman pictured in today’s post has opted to wear her box-pleat mini with a boyfriend knit, giving her look a casual edge. With her cropped blonde hair, red lip and white ankle strap pumps, she looks ready for a night out with the gals, just add the martinis!
