Fantastic Pleated Skirts

There's no doubt that one of the biggest trends this season is pleated skirts, I myself have always been a fan but am really enjoying seeing the unique variety and in the moment ways in which pleated skirts are being styled.

Pleated skirts make fashion easy - you always look striking, put together, and above all: unique. You can pair them with flats for a more classic look or keep things edgy by pairing them with chunky wedges and platform wrapped sandals. Keep looking slim by always defining your waist: either wear a fitted top tucked in, or a belt around your natural waist if you are wearing a blouse that sits over the hip like in the first photo with Ruby Aldrige. :)


  1. These are so gorgeous!
    Fabulous trendspotting, darling!


  2. I have started wearing pleats again for the first time in 25 years or so. Still struggling a bit with how to wear them (tucked, untucked, skinny belt, fat belt).

  3. Beautiful. I really love the 1st photo. The print w/midi is inspiring.
