Wear: Classic Pleated Skirt – In Black

The perfect pleated skirt to take you from spring wedding to monochromatic chic.

Look: Early Spring Wedding Guest

Admittedly, it has historically been a bit taboo to wear black to a wedding. Something about portraying a subtle mourning mood or seeming to be dressed for a funeral instead. But we have a starkly different notion of that "rule", and not just because of our love for this pleated skirt!

Paired with the right, light neutrals, this outfit as a terrific exception to the rule!

As we covered in this article, pleated skirts are creating a strong presence in today’s style. The movement from the pleated fabric keeps the eyes moving to whatever landing place you choose to highlight.

The result is a classic look with the power in your hands to feature yourself the way you want. For instance, you could highlight your lovely face with a neckerchief and pair of earrings.

With this pleated skirt as a strong neutral base for your outfit, building a classic and chic wedding outfit will be a breeze. Channel your inner Carolina Herrera with a lovely white, tucked in blouse. Pull in some creams, pinks, and tans with your accessories, and you are fit to go!

Look: Monoch{romantic} Mood

We’ve always loved the simplicity of a monochrome outfit, and going all out on a black streak is no different. The beautiful thing about black is there is really only one shade of it. You can pull out your black pieces in your wardrobe and have a put-together look in an instant.

Plus, an all-black look creates a dramatic and romantic look with minimal effort.

When it comes to accessorizing this outfit, we chose a decorative stud that imitates the look of stone. The brown veining in these creamy white Kate Spade studs provide the tie-in for your ever-handy brown purse, such as this MK tote.

A heel with a neutral animal print such as snakeskin can beautifully bring together the different shades in your outfit for a cohesive look. Do note when shopping for an animal print, it can get pretty wild pretty fast. Search for a more subtle design, in more neutral shades, to get that refined and stylish look.

Bring in the gold tones with a classic wristwatch. A simple and classic gold watch like this Nixon number is easily read as a time-keeper, which we recommend wearing especially in the professional world. Hello to checking your wrist, goodbye to checking your phone in front of your boss or future client!
