This season, it’s all about mixing retro-inspired throwback pieces with sleek, modern staples. That’s why this week’s Fabulous Find — a pleated, button-front skirt from Lauren Conrad’s collection at Kohl’s — strikes just the right balance.
This skirt looks like it should be from an old-timey girls’ school uniform, but it’s classic enough that it can be styled in any number of ways. Best of all, it’s currently on sale for under $20!

Style this skirt up or down depending on the situation. It’s surprisingly versatile!
For an everyday fall look, pair this skirt with a chunky knit sweater. To balance the bulkiness of the sweater with the structure of the skirt, give it a half-tuck and roll up the sleeves. Black booties make a good pairing with an oversized black tote. For just a touch of glam, add a pair of sparkly earrings, too.
Try this flirty look for your next night out. Start by dressing down the skirt with a graphic tee. Add a couple of trendy touches, like a suede moto jacket and ankle strap block heels, to keep the look modern. For the final touch, add a pop of print with a leopard clutch.
This polished and feminine look would work for an important meeting, fashion internship, or class presentation. Pair the skirt with a bow-front blouse, and add a black blazer for structure. Black lace-up flats give the look a modern, trendy touch. For added polish, slip on a gold watch and finish with a swipe of subtle pink lipstick.
