Yes, Pleats! A Fresh Take on the Maxi Skirt


From left: Tibi Constellation Long Skirt, Rag & Bone Desert Long Skirt, Preen Western Long Skirt.

The edict went out from the runways, and it’s one the fashion loyal are all too happy to comply with (see looks on Mr. Newton, Man Repeller, and Shopbop’s Kate Ciepluch, who wore a coveted Rag & Bone skirt during NYFW): pleated maxi skirts are a spring requirement. More than a forward statement, there’s a tactile delight in wearing these fluid silhouettes that beg to be caught in a gust of pre-summer wind.

Tibi skirts are proving to be some of the best in the bunch (the brand is having an amazing season skirt and otherwise). Solid and print varieties pair as well with Ash sandals and barely there camis as they do with Frye boots and Theory sweaters. For a more tailored take, and to get through this transition season, try a lace ADAM by Adam Lippes skirt with a cropped blazer and a knotted high bun.
