‘Tis the week of the maxi skirt on Kelsey Kaplan Fashion! While totally different than a mermaid skirt, a flowing pleated skirt is another great option for the warm weather months…here’s why!
The summer is a popular time of year for travel. Whether you’re jet setting to paradise, or riding in the passenger seat on a road trip, packing smart will save you time and frustration. A pleated skirt, like the featured item, is wrinkle-proof and extremely comfortable! Get off the plane or hop out of the car looking like a million bucks. Who doesn’t want that?! Aside from the comfort level and aesthetic appeal, when in the right color, a pleated maxi can be dressed down or up – another reason to add one to your suitcase.
I was immediately attracted to this pleated skirt because it reminded me of a multicolored scarf. To bring out the purple hues, I styled this beauty with an eggplant cropped halter. I found this one at Express and was pleasantly surprised by the $9.90 price tag. To bring out more colors in the pattern, I rocked a grayish-taupe necklace and matching sandals. Although it was not pictured, I threw a jean jacket over my shoulders for added warmth. As you can see the wind was picking up and there is nothing worse than bare shoulders when the wind whips off of the bay. If you’re attending the Union Street Festival this weekend, don’t be surprised if you see me in this outfit!
