For every girl that has ever wanted to raid Marilyn Monroe’s closet, Macy’s has granted their wishes with their new Marilyn Monroe collection. With this new line, Monroe’s classic look is re-imagined for the modern woman who loves fashion as much as she did. The pieces are ultra-feminine with a touch of retro flair from playful halter dresses with a cinched waist, to gingham tie-front button down tops, and pink polka dot denim pants. Soft blues and pinks remind us of her sweetness while the deeper tones of red, black and white evoke her famous sultry side. Each piece will retail from $29 to $89, giving every girl the affordable opportunity to look and feel like Marilyn. The collection is available now at 150 Macy’s stores and online at macys.com. These fun and flirty pieces show that Macy’s prefers Marilyn, and so does everyone else.

While free-flowing maxi skirts and skin-tight bandage sheaths have ruled the trend report for the past couple summer months, it’s time to wrap up this year’s heat wave with a different sort of mini – the pleated skirt! Pleats may have a reputation of being too preppy, regularly reserved for school uniforms and the tennis court, but these new takes on the style prove that pleats have a place in the season’s trend watch! From silky micro-pleats like this Marilyn Monroe-esque Club Monaco skirt to more structured wool-blended versions like this Philip Lim 3.1 skirt, which is perfect to pair with a pair of tights when the weather gets chillier, pleats can be surprisingly versatile, transitioning from day to night and summer to fall, depending on the look you’re going for! Add a dash of clean-cut preppiness to rocker-chick leather with this Alice + Olivia skirt that toes the line between straight-laced and edgy, and jump on-board the everlasting colorblocked trend with this Alexander McQueen mini. Whether you’re looking for an office or a party look, it’s time to consider welcoming pleats into your wardrobe!
