I’ve been looking for the perfect pleated skirt for a while now. I used to have a cute faux leather one. But that’s not the look I was going for this time around. I ordered at least five skirts and returned them all because they didn’t fit how I wanted. They were either too fluffy. Too short. Too long. Or just simply made me look like someone’s grand moms. But this midi pleated skirt not only fits just the way I want, it has the perfect weight to be worn all year long. So I’ll be able to pair it with everything from mules to thigh high boots, and tees to chunky knits. I’m in love.
This outfit is from a couple of weeks ago when it was still kind of warm in NYC. I decided to step out of my norm and paired the skirt with this Biggie graphic tee (super old and no longer available, similar one here though), and a denim jacket. The red mules and matching lip made the look a little more dressy for work. But you can throw on your favorite kicks on the weekend.
I can’t wait to pair my pleated skirt with a turtleneck and some ankle boots this Fall. Then with a chunky sweater, tights and some tall boots when the temperature drops this Winter. Get ready to see this skirt a lot!
