Something that I find myself being a sucker for when it comes to fashion, well besides denim and white tees, are pleated minis and boots. This is 100% an effect of going to private school as a kid and having an adorable uniform. It was something I hated at the time, but learned to appreciate now that I’m older. And when I find a cute pleated mini skirt in a store, I am so drawn to it. It’s instant. I can’t explain it.
Alive & Olivia Pleated Mini Skirt
While doing a Nordstrom styling session, I tried on this little mini skirt. I ironically had been eyeing it on the website but it was a bit outside my price point. Trying it on changed everything. The second I slipped it on and paired it with a classic black turtleneck I was sold. The fit was perfection and the fabric laid so nicely. I don’t think I’ve ever owned anything from Alice & Olivia. So this is my first piece and probably will not be the last either.

I love how easy this skirt is to style. Just add black boots and a turtleneck. Would also pair this with a black blazer or leather jacket too. For even colder days, add tights and maybe ankle booties or knee high ones. And for fall, this would be so sexy with a stiletto and a simple silky black blouse. I’d even do it with sneakers and a graphic tee and denim jacket which is a favorite to switch anything up in my closet.
The black and tan combination is a favorite. If you’re more of a black and white fan, this skirt also comes in that colorway. Would be a great way to be able to add some color to it as well. And this leather pleated skirt from Alice + Olivia is also calling my name. For sizing, I went with my usual size here and it fits perfectly. I’m definitely adding Alice + Olivia to my list of designers to keep an eye on.
