Designers including Celine, Carven, Jil Sander Navy, and Yves Saint Laurent had a vertical fixation this season, showing pleated knee length skirts and button-down blouses that drew the eye up and down. Sharp, strong, and structured uniform fabrics formed the basis of these looks, with classic white shirting accented in neutral tones.
This trend's uniform inspiration makes it an obvious choice for your schoolday wardrobe. A pleated skirt cinched at the waist is one option-accent its youthfulness with a sturdy, wide-band belt like those shown at Celine. A shrunken blazer and button-up blouse will take the look into full academic mode, or try mixing things up with a denim shirt or patterned blouse.
