How To Wear: Full Skirts

Some trends come and go sooner than you can flip through your favorite magazine. Usually I try to stay away from "trendy" items because they tend to be a bit out-there for my classic taste. However, this season I am loving a certain silhouette that is popping up everywhere I look: The Full Skirt.

Now:


how perfect is this?? sigh.
I used to absolutely hate pleats. I remember being so embarrassed because my mom made me wear a pair of pleated pants in grade school. However, the exaggerated pleats we are seeing this season have caught my eye in the best way. This seasons take on the full skirt is a bit shorter but every bit as quirky and polished as the vintage version. I love how it can make such a statement by itself and looks so chic paired with a simple white tee and minimal jewelry. Of course you can glam it up as well, which makes it so versatile! I am itching to get my hands on one of these beauties:

Aren't they just to die for?? Have y'all jumped on the full pleated skirt bandwagon yet? How would you style it? Can't wait to hear your ideas!

Happy Saturday!
