Fashionable outfit in grey

Can you create a non fashionable outfit with a pleated skirt? With a velvet pleated skirt? I believe that even when you try very hard to wear a pleated skirt frumpy, that you still can’t succeed. I love pleated skirts. And I am wearing this one a lot. In whatever way you style it, it is always fashionable. I already checked the S/S18 of Céline and yes! they have fantastic asymetrical pleated skirts in their collection. I think I will be on the hunt for a pastel asymetrical pleated skirt for this Spring!

Skirt with oversized sweater and lacquer sneakers

To be honest, I would have preferred to wear my gray ankle boots under this outfit, but you have seen them before (with this skirt!). I wore the lacquer sneakers also before, but they were not that visible then. After we had taken the pictures we went to a birthday party and I put on my booties though! There is a lot going on in this outfit, leather, lace, wool, lacquer, velvet and also fishnet tights again. I told you before that I wear the fishnet tights a lot! But because there are only two colors in this outfit and no prints, I think it works really well. I love a outfit like this when it’s that cold outside. Because it is freezing here. But the outfit is warm and comfortable and stylish! And yes Jodie, I wear nude thights underneath!

    Nancy, you are too adorable! I love, love, love this! I need to try the pleated skirt with a cozy sweater. But I may just look frumpy…I am not petite and sometimes too much volume gives me just that…too much volume! I love the fishnets and the sneakers with it, too. This is one of my favorite outfits ever of yours! And that brooch. You are a rock star!

      Ha ha, thank you! Aren’t pleated skirts fantastic!

    Nancy, I love this and I agree you really can’t go wrong with a pleated skirt or a moto jacket! Love this with the kicky sneakers as well. Perfect mix of frilly and feminine with edgy and comfy. – Amy

    This look is perfect and I love it that you styled this lovely ensemble with some amazing sneaks instead of boots! I don’t own a pleated skirt but you make me want one. Happy Friday! (…almost )

    Hi Nancy, I love how you’ve combined some hot trends into one stylish and fun look. Combining fishnets with cool sneakers…. um brilliant! I’m headed out the door for a photo shoot that also includes the fishnet trend. Wish I’d thought of wearing sneakers. Xo Jonet

    • January 26, 2018 / 8:15 pm

    Such a fun look Nancy and I love that you wore it with sneakers. I am sure it would look great with boots as well but the sneakers give the outfit an edge.

    • January 26, 2018 / 8:17 pm

      Thank you Nora. I’m just not a sneaker person.

    I love how you’ve styled your skirt—the leather jacket and slip-on sneakers make it look supercool. The color is so unique and beautiful too!

      Thank you Patti!

    I’m doing a monochrome look on my blog today, too! And it shouldn’t surprise you it’s pink! haha

    This is such a cool look. The jacket and sneakers add those elements of surprise and street style edge. And I like how the different shades of gray play into this. I think it’s interesting how a blend of warm and cool tones adds so much depth and dimension to the overall look.


    • January 29, 2018 / 7:27 pm

      I already saw your mail and I’m going to your blog straight away!

    • January 30, 2018 / 5:49 pm

      Thanks Emma!

  32. January 30, 2018 / 1:45 am

    This look is so neat and edgy! I love that you paired the fishnet stocking with those shoes! Great look!

    • January 30, 2018 / 5:50 pm

      Thanks love!

  33. January 30, 2018 / 7:02 pm

    I love this look. I am a sucker for gray pieces, but I especially love how you made this look super casual!


    • January 30, 2018 / 8:02 pm

      Thank you very much!

  34. February 5, 2018 / 5:17 pm

    I’m sure you can imagine that I love this look. I have had a thing for
    pleated skirts for sometime now. I love the addition of fishnets and sneakers. You look so chic. Thank you for featuring my last post. Have a great week ahead beautiful!

    • February 5, 2018 / 5:46 pm
