The return of the preppy skirt

By Alejandra Hernandez

Okay, let’s go back in time. It’s the last day of high school. 6:00 am. While you are packing your bag and eating breakfast at the same time, you realize it’s a great moment to do a quick recap before leaving: Homework? Check. Lunch? Check. Library book? Check. But wait: What are you wearing?! You go to your room and start looking: Crop tops, mini bags, Von Dutch caps… where is my mini skirt!?

Have you ever thought of how important pleated skirts were a few of years ago? Back in the day, these beauties were a must and used all over the world. From school uniforms to tennis to the streets, they were seen everywhere, and we are happy to know they are back-back. Do you want one hanging on your closet once again? Choose yours:

Black with a touch of gold

What else could be better than a perfect black pleated skirt? Easy to pair with practically any color, this beauty can also be marked as a statement piece in your closet.

Gossip-girl vibes right here! Who can say no to a Burberry preppy skirt? Honestly. If you feel like walking down the Upper East Side, don’t forget to add this piece to your closet.


Want to feel comfy?

Alo Yoga did it again. This *almost* sold-out piece is perfect if you want to feel comfy and fashion at the same time. It’s lightweight and comes in almost any color. (And yes, you can use it to go play tennis or simply walk around everywhere).

High-wasted perfection

If you are more into high-wasted pieces, this creation by Dion Lee will fit you perfectly. An out-of-the-ordinary skirt due to its edgy-styled hooks and accordion pleated design. (We assure this would totally be on Zoe Kravitz’s closet.)

On Wednesday’s we wear pink!

Fight your fear of wearing electric colors. Choosing a pink skirt like this one will automatically make you look and feel flawless. Pair it with a white shirt and long socks. (Lady-D style)
