COLOR ME PLAID

Plaid isn’t the sole province of lumberjacks and Catholic schoolgirls. Carrie Parry’s pleated check skirt exudes a quiet sophistication with its tailored A-line silhouette, high waistband, and razor-sharp knife pleats. Made in New York City from 100 percent handwoven silk georgette, and lined with 100 percent Bemberg cupro, it even has a altruistic component: For every garment you buy, the label will plant a tree through Trees for the Future.

+ Pleated Check Skirt $250 (on sale from $295)
