Every Monday at the Cut, we’re highlighting one great purchase that won’t eat up your whole paycheck. If you’re looking for something to splurge on instead, check back every Friday for one great purchase that’s absolutely worth eating ramen noodles for the rest of eternity.
If you like pale colors but fear wearing whites after Labor Day, try this soft beige skirt from Kenzo. Made almost entirely out of virgin wool, it’s a modern take on the traditional pleated skirt with enough substance to withstand the unpredictability of autumnal weather. Take a cue from this season’s trends and wear with a pussy-bow blouse and stacked boots for a ‘70s siren look, or dress it down with your favorite chambray top and sneakers for something more casual.
Kenzo Pleated Skirt, $150 at Farfetch.
