I remember a few years ago, when my mother passed on to me her pleated skirt that she no longer wanted to wear. In my mind, I didn’t see myself wearing that long pleated skirt, that seemed so old and stylish. It was black with coloured polka dots, (cute, I know!)
Looking back now, I wish I had had the guts to at least wear it. Pleats are back and here to stay.
This trend is one that will definitely be carried into the new year.
Pleats on skirts and dresses, give you a lady like look.
The cutest, way to pull off your plea\ted skirt look is by pairing it with a smashing and statement top, then have it tucked in. you can add small waist belt, to complete the look.
A turquoise pleated mini skirt paired with a cream chiffon top, tucked win, oozes sophistication, elegancy, and great fashion taste. You will definitely get a few heads turning.
Even better, if you opt for a maxi pleated skirt, then you can wear this with a vest, and add on a leather studded jacket.
These skirts are available in a wide range of colours, from the dark hues, to the light ones. So whichever you choose, you are definitely dripping in some colour.
For the fun loving personality, you could employ the colour blocking element, to spice up your look.
Lastly, don’t forget that the pleated skirt, is a unique item, so elevate it, by having on some unique accessories, like hats(fedoras),chains, strappy heels, oxfords, slipper and clutches.
So go out, and splash some of those shillings on this vintage item!
