Celebrity Outfit Idea to Steal: Ashley Madekwe's Printed Pleated Skirt + Statement Shoes
Ashley Madekwe attended the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic in Los Angeles this past weekend in a printed pleated skirt, blush suede heels, and a sheer white blouse with an embellished collar. Together, the ensemble looked polished and put-together.
Whether you're going to a polo match, work, or just brunch with the girls, this look is a great way to get a little dressy without having to try too hard—or fiddle around with too many pieces.
Feeling the pretty pleats for fall? Here's how you can recreate the Revenge star's look for yourself:
Printed pleated skirt:
The obvious statement-maker in Madekwe's outfit is her pleated skirt. The light blush color, and abstract geometric print, make it different than a tried-and-true feminine floral. To make this look work for fall, find a print that's abstract and features the blush color in Madekwe's outfit. This Madewell skirt ($98) checks off all of the boxes, and even features darker tones for fall. Don't like the blush? You can also try this pretty blue Thistle & Clover ikat printed skirt ($225.40) for a similar effect.
Sheer white blouse and blush suede heels:
Since the skirt's print is so busy, you'll want to let it steal the spotlight. Chose a simple and sophisticated top, like a sheer white blouse, to balance out the patterned bottom. We like this sequin collar shirt from Arden B. ($49) because, like Madekwe's embellished collar, it adds a little bit of sparkle.
For the shoe, bring out the blush in the skirt with a light pink suede pump. To get the strappy feel of Madekwe's shoe, try these jagged-edge Jeffrey Campbell peep-toe pumps ($179.95). The studs add a little extra texture—plus they match the gold accents on her shoe's straps.
Finish off the look with pretty beaded earrings, and you're good to go watch some polo (or at the very least, pretend you are).
