Embracing The Right Trends: Pleats

Hey loves!

There was a time my closet was full of black clothes. Black, black, black everywhere! I was obsessed with it up until I decided that I needed to add some more color in my life.

Black is easy for a lot of us. Yes? Fast forward to 5 years down the line, I occasionally find myself in an all black look, case and point: today’s look.

The outfit: Styling Pleats

I am wearing a black lace top which I got ages ago. I tend to pick timeless pieces hence the top is still fashionable today. That’s why I always say it’s better to buy timeless clothes that will transcend through a million seasons and still look cute.

Trends are fun, but not always necessary. It’s all about picking and choosing the right ones that work for you.

Pleats are in and that’s a trend I am totally embracing. Initially, I had spotted something similar to this skirt in town being sold for $35USD. In my mind I converted that USD amount to the Zimbabwean dollar. A bit pricey if you ask me. With trends you don’t want to spend that much.

Coincidentally, I spotted this skirt a few days later at a thrift market. I had to get my hands on it obviously.

To finish off the look, I added some black heels and a blag bag.

What are your thoughts on this look? Do you spend more money on trends oh nah? Let me know in the comments section below.

Until Next Time…

I Love You For Stopping By.

  1. Trends were never my thing until last year. I will only spend a fortune on a trend that I foresee withstanding time. The bamboo bag was that type of trend for me. I splurged on my bag and you will be seeing me carrying it around for years to come.

    You and I on timeless pieces, same WhatsApp group.

    1. Oh yes I love your bamboo bag and it’s definitely timeless.
