There are some items of clothing that can be worn whatever the weather or season! Not many garments are as iconic as pleated skirts. These skirts, so characteristic because of their very defined pleats, are extremely versatile and can be worn in both formal and informal contexts. Therefore, they represent a fantastic choice for creating work outfits, now that some of us are gradually returning to the office.
Are pleated skirts in this Autumn?
This season, pleated midi skirts will be making a comeback into our wardrobes. Fashion insiders like Olivia Palermo or haute couture designers like Alberta Ferreti have already joined this trend. Are you up for it too? If so, here’s how to wear your pleated skirt to get the most out of this ultra feminine garment.
Will a pleated midi skirt suit me?
A pleated skirt is an ideal garment for balancing the upper and lower parts of your body, as pleats add volume. This is why this type of skirt really suits women with an inverted triangle body, i.e. with broad shoulders that are wider than the hips.
For women with a rectangular body shape, this garment will also work well because the pleats in the skirt will help to shape the silhouette.
On the other hand, if you have a triangular silhouette (with hips wider than shoulders), we’d encourage you to try on some pencil skirts, as they will flatter your figure without adding unnecessary volume.
How to mix and match your pleated skirt
A pleated skirt is a garment that you can wear at its most formal, but also for casual events. It all depends on what you wear it with!
Wear your pleated skirt with a wool jumper
If you are looking for a comfortable and feminine outfit, get yourself a wool turtleneck jumper and wear it with your pleated skirt. Add some ankle boots and a tote bag, and you’ll have a trendy and warm look for your day-to-day life this Autumn-Winter.
Wear your pleated skirt with a pair of trendy trainers
We have said in the past that mixing formal garments with more casual ones is definitely a very trendy tactic. That’s why we invite you to inject a punch of style to your pleated skirt with a pair of trendy trainers. Add an oversized sweatshirt, and your look is good to go!
Wear your pleated skirt with a classic blazer
If you’re tired of always wearing your blazer with chinos or jeans, why not wear it with a pleated skirt? Choose a pleated skirt in a bottle green shade, one of this season’s hottest hues, and pair it with a black top and kitten heels to add a dash of sophistication to your outfit.
Wear your printed pleated skirt with a pair of ankle boots
A floral print is autumnal and very feminine. If you feel like it was made just for you, a pleated skirt in this print will be an instant hit. Wear it with a fitted cardigan and choose a pair of burgundy ankle boots – don’t be afraid to make them the star of the look! This original twist will add colour to autumn. Will you dare?
