Fab Finds Under $100: Midi-Length Pleated Skirt

I’ve been totally into the black-and-white color trend for quite some time now — and am still on fiend status. So, of course I stopped dead in my web surfing tracks a couple days ago when I saw this C. Luce Stripe Illusion Pull-On Skirt on that site that regularly gets allllllllll of my “play” money Piperlime.com.

The details on it are pretty amazing. As if the color-blocked stripe print wasn’t enough, there are accordion pleats and a solid black waistband (perfect for the half tucked/untucked shirt look). I could see myself rocking this skirt in the fall with a wool turtleneck in a punchy color like cobalt or raspberry with some black opaque tights, a long delicate chain necklace, and a  fierce pair of pumps.

Fab Finds Under $100: Neon Skater Skirt

Summertime was made for fun, flirty skirts and this pleated skater-style version from Asos is absolutely adorable. The folded pleating detail at the waist and a larger pleats along the front and back have a luxe look, while the vibrant neon coral hue makes this piece perfect for color-blocking.

TRY THIS ON: A slinky camisole in an equally bold color such as yellow would look super chic with this skirt. Layer on some delicate gold chain pendant necklaces at varying lengths with a sexy nude heel and you’ve got a date night look that is sure to turn some heads.
