Jamie Chung wouldn’t be the street style star that she is without an incredible display of styling talent. Such was the case when she styled one black-and-white contrast pleated Proenza Schouler midi skirt ($2,250; barneys.com) in two ways that were as different as night and day. Literally.
During the day, she was snapped taking the plunge with a chambray shirt that she daringly left unbuttoned. But she elevated the casual piece with the pleated Proenza Schouler skirt, a delicate pendant, a playful Anya Hindmarch tote, and black Stuart Weitzman sandals. That night, she kept the same skirt, but took another fashion risk, introducing more stripes with a playfully lined knit top. Smoldering eye makeup, a vampy red lip, and lace-up sandals rounded out her nighttime ensemble.
The takeaway here is that Chung is a styling genius—and that a pleated skirt is in the running for the most versatile piece of clothing out there. Pull a Jamie and shop for a pleated skirt of your own, below.
