I love a pleated skirt, and I love them for many reasons. Pleated skirts really look flattering on all body shapes. The pleats are vertical, and anything that is vertical (stripes, pleats, etc.) makes you appear taller and leaner. Pleated skirts can really be worn anyway and for any occasion. You can wear them with heels, sneakers, flats, and ankle boots depending on the weather and occasion. When I wear a pleated skirts with a pair of heels, I feel extra girly. When I wear it with a pair of converse, I feel like I'm ready to conquer the day. Although you can wear them with any type of shoe, I do suggest wearing certain types of shoes depending on your height. For the taller women, you can wear either a heel or a flat, but if you don't want to appear super tall; you can get away with a flat or sneaker. For my shorter ladies, wearing a heel will definitely make the skirt more flattering on you especially if you're wearing a mini or midi pleated skirt. As for the top, it's kind of like the shoe. You can really wear any type of top depending on the occasion. If you're going to a baseball game, tuck your favorite teams t-shirt into your skirt and throw on a pair of sneakers. If you're going to work, pair it with a pretty blouse and your favorite heels. If you're going out with the girls, pair it with a crop top and a pair of ankle booties. The pleated skirt is a very versatile piece and it's timeless. This skirt isn't going out of style anytime soon so grab it in your favorite pop of color, black, tan, white, and any other color you love!
I wanted to create a super girly look so I paired this gorgeous orange-coral pleated skirt with a sheer polka dot white blouse. This blouse has very pretty details on the sleeve creating a bell sleeve and a ruffle over the bust area. It's very detailed so it compliments the skirt very well. I added a block nude heel to complete the outfit.
I could twirl in this skirt all day!
How will you style your pleated skirt?
