HOW TO WEAR A PLEATED SKIRT

As we mentioned above, there are so many suggestions we could make on how to wear a pleated skirt for every season.  Here are just a few of our favorite style suggestions.

 

STYLE YOUR PLEATED SKIRT AS A MONOCROMATIC LOOK

As you can likely tell from these styles above and below, we love a good monocromatic look.  If you are shopping places such as J.Crew, Mango, Nordstrom, etc. you can often find both a skirt and sweater or blouse which are the same exact color.  Also, as you may already know, shops like J.Crew, Nordstrom, Banana Republic and Ann Taylor often have pleated skirts available in petites, too.  

And, don’t stress, if you can’t find a skirt and sweater or blouse in the exact colors – similar colors often do really well paired together, also.

A PULLED TOGETHER LOOK WITH HEELS AND A STATEMENT BLOUSE OR TOP 

If you are looking for how to wear a pleated skirt for a more dressy occasion such as the office, a showers, etc. we can’t resist pairing our favorites with a statement blouse or top.  

Whether you are drawn towards floral prints, leopard, polka dots, strips or even a plaid colored blouse – shop your closet for your favorite piece and pair it with your pleated skirt for a chic look. 

Here are just a few of our favorite affordable options:

COORDINATE YOUR PLEATED SKIRT WITH KNEE HIGH BOOTS

It must be obvious by now when it comes to how to wear a pleated skirt pairing with knee high boots is one of our go-to styles.  And, it doesn’t matter the color.  Wheither you have black, maroon, tan, cream or any other shade – you can almost always pair with this classic skirt style.  

What I love about wearing knee high boots with a pleated skirt is it’s a look that’s appropriate for almost any occasion.  Date night, brunch with the girls, a friends baby or bridal shower, the office any beyond – you cannot go wrong.
