How to Wear Pleated Skirts

Want to look elegant in pleated skirts?  They are increasingly making a comeback on our runways. They were everywhere during the 70’s and 80’s and have solidified their place as a fashion item that every elegant woman should own. These skirts not only elegant but are very versatile from pairing them with jumpers for a casual boohoo chic look to wearing them with off shoulder tops. These skirts can be worn for a variety of occasions.

Pleated skirts are amazing as they are so versatile so don’t be afraid to wear them with high heel boots for a more formal look or even open toe sandals for a comfy yet elegant look. They are also excellent for women who are particularly top heavy as its flare design tends to hide any bulges underneath. Wear a double breasted blazer and a waist belt with your pleated skirt for an elegant chic look.

Pleated skirts are also a favourite wardrobe staple as they tend to come in a variety of materials such as leather, suede, silk and chiffon and can be worn with most outfits. Wearing one with a thick, acrylic jumper will ensure you are stylish and kept warm during the winter months.

Don’t shy away from bold colours when wearing pleated skits. They are such a modest, classy item of clothing that you can afford to experiment with colours you wouldn’t normally wear.
