One of the biggest fashion trends this year is a pleated skirt. Now, I realize that pleated skirts can seem intimidating to wear, as well as a little too preppy, professional, and maybe even old-fashioned.
knife pleats (the tiny, sharp pleats you usually see on midi skirts) are also difficult to take care of and have a very high fashion quality to them. Even larger pleats can seem difficult to wear because they can easily look very dressed up or mature… and that’s not always the look you’re going for.
The thing is, though, there are actually tons of ways to wear pleated skirts, and most of these are really fun and cool outfit ideas instead of something that will remind you of your grandma. Don’t believe me? I found a whole bunch of real-life outfits worn by fashion bloggers and Instagram models alike that feature pleated skirts in the best way possible.
Once you find the pleated skirt that is best for you – whether it’s tiny pleats or larger ones, a midi length or a more mini length, a bright color or something more classic – you can do a lot with it that will make you look amazing and extremely cool and fashion forward.
