Hello, my dear fashion readers! Today’s post is dedicated to my favorite and best ways to wear pleated skirts. This beautiful clothing piece is originally associated with school uniforms. In today’s fashion world it can be worn for a variety of occasions, starting from casual to dressy styles. Thanks to its clean-cut look and pleats that hold the skirt in place, this beautiful garment is versatile enough to match your stylish ensembles. If you want to see best ways how to wear this beautiful skirt, then you are welcome to look through this street style compilation. Don’t forget to tell me what are your favorite looks and why.
Before you buy any pleated skirt, you should keep in mind your body shape. Why? Pleats may add a bulky look that will look better on girls with thinner bodies. If you are apple or pear-shaped woman, then you better wear those pleated styles that prevent attention from being drawn to the bottom half of your body. Speaking of pleats, then wide pleats are more casual, while knife-pleated styles are ideal for formal events. Of course, there are lots of other amazing pleats for choose from, starting with accordion pleats to cartridge pleats to dramatic and polished ones.
Even if you choose skirts with wide pleats, be sure these bottoms will make you look dressy. In other words saying, be creative and think of original outfits. I love to see gals who appear on the streets wearing these bottoms styled with turtlenecks, denim jackets, tank tops, crop tops, sweaters, chambray shirts, etc. You can create Parisian chic inspired looks, by teaming striped long-sleeve tops with black pleated skirts and black opaque tights and black pumps. Another great way to make your pleated skirts look awesome is to dress them up with sporty garments. For instance, show off your athletic vibe by adding crop tops, tennis shirts, baseball caps, sneakers, tennis shirts, etc. If you are one of those who wants to add some edgy touch, then how about adding leather jacket? This outerwear garment will surely make you look voguish, fashion-forward and very special. I love the feminine and classy look of pleats and edgy appearance of leather jacket. If you don’t want your skirt to be attention-grabbing, then keep all your clothes in the same hue, so that every piece harmonize each other. If you want to wear pleated skirt to work, then be careful when pairing it with buttoned shirt, as you can look like a real school girl. To avoid such look, you should skip typical colors what were used in your school uniform (navy, white, black, brown). Choose longer length skirts and keep your overall look classy and grown-up. Keep your outfit look original and modern. Look for beautiful details and prints that can make a real statement on the streets.
