I’m always late when it comes to fashion trends, generally with those three months of chronic delay where I have to decide whether or not I like that something that gets classified as a season must have.
Take golden pleated skirts for example. They’re all over Pinterest, bloggers have been sporting them for months and almost every fashion house came out with one: form Gucci to Lowe up to Jcrew.
I saw them on the catwalks, I saw them in magazines, and yet when a friend suggested that I’d get one I was still like meh I’m not sure I like them. It wasn’t until I saw it in person that it clicked that I needed one.
After seeing them in eighty different look I came to the conclusion that metallic golden pleated midi skirts -could I make the name any longer?- are a good idea.
But how do we justify this heinous idea?
1. I could wear it with a black turtleneck sweater and granny-like velvet slip on and be ready for a new Years concert in Vienna.
2. I’d look like a rich Russian, but without the blonde hair and long legs.
3. Alexa Chung has it.
4.Christmas makes me irrational.
5.Topshop sells it and it’s relatively cheap, so it’s doable.
6. You could technically dress it down…
The only picture of me I could find wearing that skirt..
