I stopped by the Club Monaco on 5th Avenue last week and upon walking in I was immediately met by a girl wearing a skirt (Club Monaco Adela skirt) that caught my attention.

At first glance I knew I wanted to take a photo and share her look with you, but it took a little self-convincing. For some reason it felt much more awkward than the typical street style routine. I guess it’s the confined environment and the idea of not wanting to feel like a creeper.

Anyway, before leaving I asked to take a snap and she was kind enough to let me do so.

Take a look at the skirt below.

The three things I really liked about the Club Monaco Adela skirt were:

  • the pleats – they were very popular last year and will continue to be this year.
  • the slits up the side – you could call these innocently flirtatious.
  • the overall length – imagine yourself wearing this everywhere from the city to the beach to the park.

When she moved, as seen above, it had a great flow and created a very nice look. You’ll also want to take note of the styling that was done with the belt – that little touch is a nice enhancement. I’d suggest you add the belt, or something along those lines, to create an accent.

Another great think about this skirt is you’ll be able to get a ton of wear out of it. If it’s chilly where you live at the moment, you could easily toss some tights on underneath for a little added warmth. And if you’re lucky enough to have warm weather at the moment, you’ll love the look and how light the skirt is.

The Club Monaco Adela skirt retails for $139.50. Click here to buy it.
