Schoolgirl-cool has emerged as a hot trend at Fall 2010 Fashion Week and the defining item is the ultra-mini pleated skirt! Alexander Wang's Wall Street-inspired looks (far left) paired with thigh-high boots and crochet tops were anything but office appropriate, and DKNY's kicky minis (near left) were '60s-inspired, styled with motif sweaters and newsboy caps. Try the trend now by wearing a flirty mini with over-the-knee flat boots (to keep your legs warm) and a cozy, slim-fit sweater.
