Power of Pleats

Who: Amy, 21, a student

Where she shops: “Since I’m in all black today, I knew I wanted a pop of color somewhere — that’s why I chose these bright blue shoes. My shoes are from Aldo, and my skirt is from H&M. I love the way this skirt falls — and the pleats are really pretty, I think.” — Amy

Wear it yourself tip: If you love the color black, but you don’t want to look like you’re headed to a funeral, wear colorful shoes, accessories, or makeup to balance out your look. And the pleated skirt is a huge trend right now, but if you’re going sheer on top, make sure you’re wearing a cute bra or cami.
