Six Ways to Update Your Origami Skort for Fall

The origami skort craze has taken the fashion world by storm, thanks to the now-infamous Zara one that inspired our blogger skort feature (can you believe all five of our featured bloggers wore the same brand?). With consumers’ attention spans waning, the clothing market clamored for bigger and better – and as expected, various brands took to their sewing machines to respond.

Here are five of our origami skort blogger picks for fall:

Of course, fashion mogul Zara would be the first and the quickest to respond to the clamoring. Whoever the current genius is behind the brand, we thank you for the fashion-god-given pinstripe update to the look – just what we were craving for fall. Pair it with lots of white and bold stripes to usher in a crisp season transition.

One-tone color or print too matchy-matchy for you? Why not try a two-toned look? Seek out an origami skirt with contrasting layers and pair them with a classic buttondown shirt and some heavy-duty cutout booties. Your autumn wardrobe will thank you for it.

Gray is the new white. Update your all-white summer origami skort ensemble by injecting a little gray into it. Switch up your top for a nice, warm knit, and preempt a little holiday into your look by slipping into metallic heels.

We’re still very much in love with print-on-print for fall. Our ground rule for this trend is: the bolder the combination, the better (just be careful with looking like you got dressed in the dark). Varying patterns in the same color combination is one quick trick to pulling off this look. Oh, and don’t forget the pointed-toe, ankle-strapped heels for that leg-lengthening effect – bold contrast prints may tend to shorten one’s silhouette.

How about a little play on banded hems and patterns? Fall/winter is all about structures, and nothing cheats its way to Structured-ville faster than thick banded hems. Coupled with the origami skort’s sharp-edged layers, these color-contrasting hems will have your fall wardrobe feeling like it has found its new sporty-femme bestfriend.

If you have pinstripes, then you will have plaids. If stripes come off as a little too serious for you, then you may choose to channel your inner schoolgirl with a checked pair. Partner up your plaid skort with a slouchy or ruffled top and suede booties for a soft daytime look. Also, a pair of sunnies is always a good idea.
