J.Crew Silk Kick Pleat Skirt Inspired Outfit

When I saw J.Crew's new Silk kick pleat skirt, It reminded me of a similar skirt that's in my closet. I'm wearing the '08 holiday Silk taffeta A-line skirt, also from J.Crew.

The A-line is a classic shape that flatters most figures. I would love to get my hands on the new version in the beautiful ruby color. The new skirt features pockets and a more substantial wool and silk fabric. The other difference is length. The new one is about 3 1/2 inches longer than mine.

I think a skirt like the Silk kick pleat skirt is an investment piece that will look great for years to come. I wear mine with turtlenecks, t-shirts and sweaters.
