The January 2012 issue of Redbook magazine spotlights a pleated basic skirt as the new go-to skirt this season. According to Redbook, the pleated skirt “has the same superpowers as a black pencil skirt.”
I recently purchased a Cynthia Rowley pleated skirt on clearance in TJ Maxx. It was marked down to $15! Unbelievable, right? Today, I pull out the Fashion Thesaurus to see if this skirt could really become a go-to piece.

2. Cozy Chic

3. Party Chic

And, remember the Fashion Thesaurus: Chambray Shirt post? I wore the pleated skirt in that post, so it works really well with a basic chambray shirt too. Here’s the skirt as featured in that post.

So, what do you think? I think Redbook was right. This skirt goes with everything.
