It’s only recently that I’ve started exploring Asian designers, but I can say with confidence that Tsumori Chisato leads the pack. She has a natural way of playing with prints and patterns, and a “healthy dose of manga/bohemian cuteness” that translates well to the life of an American girl, even one who didn’t make it to Coachella. So not to overload readers with more Festival Style, I decided to wear Chisato’s pleated skirt and explore ways to make that latest trend natural and fun. If you’re like me, living in the pseudo-South, pleated midi-skirts are all the rage, and you probably go to work looking like a fashionable ’50s cut-out. I love that this Chisato skirt is full-length, and inspires the wearer to play with a minimalism and comfort that is not always found when working with pleats. And the color palette? Well, you’re definitely not going to go under the radar!
I paired this Tsumori Chisato Pleated Skirt with a crop-top from Topshop, and Stella & Dot’s newest necklace. I have a small frame and needed some height to not swallow myself in the skirt, so I added these Christian Louboutin wedges for some lift.
Do you have any Asian designers in your closet? Share below – I’m always trying to branch out!
