Every Friday at the Cut, we’re highlighting one great purchase, for which it’s absolutely worth eating ramen noodles for the rest of eternity. If you’re looking for cheap thrills instead, check back every Monday for a fun pick-me-up that will still leave you enough cash for dinner.
In case you forgot, disco is having a moment. Although bell-bottom halter jumpsuits and flashy sequins are sure to get you noticed, it’s better to stick out for the right reasons in this Cédric Charlier pleated midi skirt. The shiny dark-blue lamé reads as a polished ode to the glitz of the era, while accordion pleats lend movement so you can dance like Saturday Night Fever even on a Tuesday. The skirt also stops below the knee, so it’s work-appropriate. Add a neutral turtleneck and pumps for your nine-to-five, or swap out the heels for classic white trainers on the weekend.
