Wear Now Fall Trends: Alix Pleated Skirt

Wear Now Fall Trends: Alix Pleated Skirt

I don’t do fall before September 1, but that doesn’t mean I’m not doing my adult back to school shopping.  I picked up a few pieces from the Avon Fall For Paris collection (see here) and lucky for me I selected some on trend pieces that I can wear now and wear later!

The Avon Alix Pleated skirt has classic design in a gorgeous menswear inspired print that still has all the trends for fall. This skirt is lightweight, flirty and not lined so extremely wearable now. I personally have a houndstooth obsession so this was my #1 pick from the Fall For Paris collection.

I absolutely love a black and white print with a cobalt blue which is really nice as a late summer color pallet.  Still bright and bold but still being fresh.  I paired the Alix Pleated skirt with a cutout chocker tank from Express, bandage heels from mark., tassel earrings from Avon and a houndstooth bracelet and watch.

Alicia 5 years ago would never buy a pleated “long” skirt and even when I got this, I thought, should I hem this?  I short girl with curves and thick legs doesn’t seem to be the ideal candidate for this skirt BUT with the right heel can conquer the world, or the skirt.  If I can wear this skirt, so can you, that’s what I’ve found about this collection, its WAY more flattering than you’d think.

The Avon Alix Pleated Skirt is actually a good year round skirt.  It’s classic enough that you can pair it with the right seasonable separates for any season.  Come fall I’ll wear it with a graphic tee and booties.  (and by graphic tee I mean the upcoming Queen tee from mark.), in the winter this will look adorable with tights, tall boots and a fine gauge sweater.  In the spring I can see this with a really pretty feminine blouse and a lady like pump.  I’ll get good use out of this skirt!

Try layering to complimenting statement necklace to up the ante!  I love how the chain details compliment each other here with my two (mark. and Brighton).

If you’ve seen me in the last few months you’ll know that this top has been in heavy rotation.  I think that speaks enough for the reason you need this in your closet.  Might as well get that holiday shopping done and pick up this blouse, if not for yourself then for someone else, because I bet they’ll love it as much as I do.  You can get it at my eBoutique for $36:  http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger
