The Perfect edit – Pleated Skirts

Images from Pinterest

Are you are thinking about your post lockdown style and wanting to ease out of those leggins and joggers? You of course want to look nice and feel stylish when going out and maybe you aren’t quite ready for your jeans. Then a pleated skirt is a great option for you.

This style of skirt really does suit all figures and is universally flattering.

Dress up or down, it’s a staple addition to your wardrobe that is sure to get plenty of wear across the seasons. Wear with any top in your wardrobe as it works with everything!

Wear now with trainers a pair of secret leggings to beat the chill, in the summer with flats and sandals and then in the autumn/ winter with tights and boots.

Stylist top tips-

  • Look for a high waisted style / elasticated waist for maximum comfort and great for smoothing over the tummy/ hips.
  • Think about length before you buy. Some are classes as maxi ( long) or midi ( mid way to your ankle ) depending on your height will depend on how these sit. For example, I’m only 5ft ish so I would steer away from a maxi as it would swap me, I go for a midi style knowing it will look longer on me than the model.
  • Ask yourself what you have in your wardrobe already to wear with it?
  • What colour you would get the most wear out of? Going into spring a soft pink is a good option, will go well with your light tops and tee’s. Also an animal print as its a neutral print will also work well with your existing wardrobe.
  • Wanting that wow factor, go for a bright colour or bold print.
My top 3 favourite pleated skirts , I’ve dressed all of these up with heels for going out and dressed down with trainers and boots.
