Elle recently published the Top 50 Trends of 2015, and many of my favorite pieces made the list including Gucci's pleated skirt. This skirt was shown in almost every fashion week recap this fall, and instantly fell in love with its classic shape and bold color. Like almost all fashion week trends, this skirt was extremely out of my budget. So when I spotted this skirt at Banana Republic for under $50 I almost squealed. It has the same look as the Gucci skirt for a fraction of the price. A thick charcoal grey sweater plays well with the muted blue hue and soft pleats, while still keeping me warm. We may be nearing the end of 2015, but I'm still loving this trend and hope it stays for 2016.
