Would you believe me if I tell you that being a clothes hoarder isn’t always a bad thing? While it can be completely alienating to us, and also people around us, it can be a good way to fall back in love again with some hidden gems. The truth is, I’m a clothes hoarder, I kept things from when I was 15 years old but I do, once a year, a massive closet cleaning. Spring closet cleaning is what I did a few days ago, this is when I found this old Zara pleated skirt. Finding this skirt made me realized how fast trends can be. Pleats were trendy 3 years ago and we all know that they were 2016’s biggest trend.

Quite frankly, I’m still wondering how I forgot about this babe! But I thought, it was the perfect occasion to put together a new spring outfit for the blog! The design of this skirt is so delicate that I wanted to pair it with some rough materials. Hence why, I picked my favourite distressed biker jacket. The mix of the two give a glam rock vibe that I totally love! To accessorize the outfit, I picked a pair of suede pumps from Daniel Footwear and a bucket bag from Mango for the mix of materials. To finish the look, I went for a pair of bold golden earrings from Mango, to give a strong contrast with all the black and white.

Also, you may have realized that I changed my blog header. I got it custom made by Zaffar,ย who is a talented letterer andย he did such an amazing work that I wanted to give him a shoutout! If you also want a unique blog header, you can visit his Etsy storeย but also his Instagram, to see more of his work.

    This skirt is perfect with the leather jacket, you look so rock ‘n’ roll and chic at the same time!! <3 I adore this kind of styling and the images add such an amazing vibe as well! ๐Ÿ™‚
    I agree with you, as much as we need to (sadly) get rid of our clothes from time to time it's good to keep some statement and timeless items as they may come back into trend at one point or are just timeless, like the leather jacket ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you so much for sharing! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love this look! Good thing you held on to this one. How do you store clothes? Do you box them up or is everything in your closet? I always have to store my winter gear and older things I am not wearing that often, I don’t have a lot, but I don’t have much room either!

    I love the pleated skirt! Marni had some insane pleated skirts in an older collection.

      Oh I think I remember those and if I’m not wrong this Zara skirt was inspired by this collection!

    The spring clean-out is nothing but a chance to hibernate for a day , as rarely does anything get tossed just rearranged! So glad you rediscovered this skirt it makes this look!!

    Okay, I would never have thought that skirt was from years ago – it’s so perfectly on-trend! I also love the color contrast as well! How very pretty!
    Oh and last thing – I am really loving the juxtaposition of tough leather and delicate pleats. You are so amazingly stylish!

    I am guilty of being a clothes hoarder too.. mainly because I often find myself revisiting a trend a few years later and wishing I had never got rid of certain pieces! This skirt was a good one to hold on to! It’s so amazing.. love how you styled it back with leather too!

    I am so glad that you held onto that skirt. Its a beauty. I’ve kicked myself so many times for getting rid of clothing because it was out of “vogue” then have it be trendy again a few years later. That skirt is perfect on you. Great pairing with the leather jacket.

    Love your style! I’m a big clothes hoarder too and I totally know the feeling of discovering something cool you’ve forgotten at the back of the closet. That skirt is such a pretty treasure to find!

    Its not like us hoarders need any justification… but isn’t it great to know that you probably already own something similar when a trend comes around ? Fabulous skirt Aria and the header looks great.

    Love the contrast of the leather jacket with the black and white! Plus, it’s always fun to rediscover an old favorite; it’s like free shopping <3
