The Must Have Item

March 1, 2012 § 17 Comments

For as long as I remember there only ever been 2 lengths of skirts in my wardrobe – either maxi or mini (to tell you the truth the majority are mini and I am sure I am not the only one). Calf length aka midi skirt would only be associated with black and white photos my grandmother used to show me of her youth. But now it is time to forget that association and welcome the new fashion piece into our lives (and wardrobes) – Chiffon Pleated Midi Skirt.

Slight fascination with this particular item started on a few catwalks for autumn winter 2011 season, but by spring summer 2012 pleated midi has repositioned itself from charity shops to everyone’s fashion wish list and it seems it is here to stay! The item is so versatile, as you can see from the catwalk looks above, it is likely to become a wardrobe staple: you can wear it on leisurely walk, to a work meeting, during cocktail hour and pretty much everywhere else by teaming it with different tops and accessories. And did I mention it looks as good with flats as with heels?

My favourite way to wear one this season is to pick one-colour version in either bright or pastel shade, team it up with oversized T-shirt and add randomly put together long chain necklaces. And if you are not afraid to experiment team up socks with wedges à la Mulberry campaign and you are ready to rock it!

The best thing – there is such a wide range to choose from whether you are looking for designer item or cheaper way to adopt this trend. My favourites are those by Jil Sander which come in so many colours you would not want to look anywhere else. Bellow are my designer and budget picks for joining on the hot trend of Spring Summer 12!

When was the last time you wore high tops and felt super fashionable? The answer is most likely to be never, until now that is. Fashion world is currently in love with high tops, but my obsession is more specific – I love high tops with hidden wedge. The look is perfect for current sport de lux trend, plus who does not like a bit of a height boost (ok, I know a lot of girls out there don’t need the extra centimeters, but with my 5’5”/166 cm it is very desirable). So whether you call them sneakers, trainers or just high tops this new shoe type is in high demand!

  1. Ash Cool Suede Strapped Wedge Trainers, £139
  2. Asos Ark Leather Wedge Ankle Boots in Brown, £85
  3. Asos Ark Leather Wedge Ankle Boots in Off White, £85
  4. See by Chloe Lace Up Wedge Sneakers in Beige, £262
  5. See by Chloe Wedge Sneakers, £260
  6. See by Chloe Lace Up Wedge Sneakers in Petalo, £262
  7. Aldo Nedz Concealed Wedge Suede Trainers, £80
  8. Ash Thelma Leather Buckle Wedge Trainers, £145
  9. Ash Bea Colourblock Wedge Trainers, £169

And if the brown to nude versions are so last season for your color taste, Marc by Marc Jacobs High Tops are the answer!
