4 Ways to Wear ~ Pleated Skirt

For this month's 4WTW, I wanted to feature a piece that I know alot of women already have in their closet...and something that you can wear frequently in the summer.  I kept the pieces light (no blazers or layers), since most of us are heading into the hottest weather of the year and I also tried to show a mix of both dressed up & more casual combinations.  Check out extra detailed photos from this shoot over on my Facebook page, let me know what look is your favorite & if there's an item you'd like to see styled 4 ways next month!

What I'm wearing:
The Limited dress (worn as top), MNG by Mango skirt (here - runs small, so size up), Forever 21 belt (similar), Mossimo pumps (on sale here), Mango bag, Bracelets: Vintage & Ann Taylor (on sale here)

What I'm wearing:
StyleMint tee (last seen here), MNG by Mango skirt (here - runs small, so size up), Old Navy oxfords (similar), Forever 21 fedora (similar), Vintage necklaces, Bracelets: Vintage & Monet, Dockers aviators (on sale here)

What I'm wearing:
J. Crew shirt (via eBay), MNG by Mango skirt (here - runs small, so size up), MRKT wedges (similar), Anthropologie necklace, Tasha bracelet, Jason Wu for Target satchel

What I'm wearing:
LOFT top (here), MNG by Mango skirt (here - runs small, so size up), c/o Ann Taylor sandals (on sale here), Forever 21 tote (here), Vintage necklace, Target cuff (similar), Mudd sunnies (on sale here)

The outfit at the top reminds me of a very amazing prada number, red and yellow I think but with similar style and pleats. Lots of style inspiration here, you're the queen of mixing things up.
