3 Ways to Rock a Pleated Skirt

Pleats to meet you! Meet your new favourite skirt – and three ways to wear it.



You can never have enough pleated skirts in your wardrobe… That is a true fashion fact, we promise! The power of the skirt hasn’t waned over the past few seasons – it’s a versatile style that can be dressed up or down, looks elegant and chic, and suits all ages. So let’s have a look at some ways you can wear THE skirt of the moment:

LOOK 1: Go wild with animal print

Animal prints – in particular leopard print – are still going strong this season; it’s now a basic print to have in your wardrobe. Pair your skirt with a pair of classic Chuck Taylors and a long-line black blazer for a casually styled look. Wear the blazer open for a relaxed feel or over your shoulders for that cool street-style vibe, over a plain white crew neck T-shirt (another wardrobe staple!) Add a beaded bag as a finishing touch – this one’s dark brown wood tones pick up the colours in the leopard print skirt.

LOOK 2: Shimmer and shine

There’s just something instantly glam and dressy about this skirt – it makes you want to go out for a night with the girls. It’s a timeless piece that we guarantee will always look amazing! And while you’re out shining like a star… keep the look dressy with added sequins (they’re not just for Christmas!) Keep your footwear simple with a classic pair of black sandals and add a pop of colour with a red velvet clutch. Can you say ladies’ night?

LOOK 3: Block party

The fun colour-block aspect of this skirt can be dressed up or dressed down and works just as easily for a night out as a meeting. Make a statement with a fab pair of black patent boots, which instantly gives your pleated skirt a more edgy look. To turn this outfit into a work/office ensemble or perhaps a lunch date, add a white shirt. For a touch of contrast, it’s nice to clash some colour and prints and since snakeskin print is still having its moment in the limelight, a cool belt bag is just the ticket.
