Sweater + pleated skirt outfit formula | Black + coral + snakeskin

As I flipping through the November 2016 issue of People StyleWatch, I saw a feature on fall outfit formulas, and one of them was about pairing a pleated midi skirt with a crewneck sweater and ankle strap shoes. ON IT.

I paired coral pleated skirt with my black crewneck sweater for a super simple outfit formula. I added a little something extra with my snakeskin, ankle-strap wedges, for that touch of whimsy I like to mix in with my comfy + classic style.

I often tuck in my shirts when I wear this skirt, because I like to emphasize the wide waistband, as seen here and here, but today, it felt more natural to keep the sweater untucked. I think the pleats stood out even more this way!
