Two of the biggest fashion trends this winter is velvet and pleats. They are both classic styles that are very versatile. Velvet and pleats definitely have a "holiday" look and feel so I wanted to pair the two together.

Velvet is is a nice touch to add to make an outfit more interesting. I have been seeing it used a lot not only in apparel but also in accessories such as boots, handbags, and jewelry.

Pleated skirts are feminine, sophisticated and timeless. It's something that you can keep in your wardrobe for years and dress up or down. My favorite ways to wear pleated skirts are with a cropped shirt or oversized sweater that is tucked or tied in the front.
