How To Style The Pleated Skirt

During my last visit in Gothenburg, Sweden, it was so sunny, windy and cold. When I was packing for the trip, I knew I wanted to bring this pleated skirt with me. Though, I was not sure how to style it, as I find it tricky to pull off with pleats. I decided to pair it with a red top and sneakers and turned out to be a perfect and comfortable outfit to run around in town. Two days later, because the skirt has a lot of movement and the silver shine on it, I paired it with a white long-sleeved blouse that has the cutest romantic ruffles on the neck and the around the sleeves. These Zara velvet boots added some color to the outfit.

If you are planning to invest in a pleated skirt, go ahead and do it. There are so many ways to pair this flirty and sophisticated piece. For instance, you can pair it with a tee and a pair sneaker for a more casual look. If you want a more edgy look and vibe, throw on a black leather jacket and boots. A silk cami top, heeled sandals, a small purse all paired together with the skirt are suitable for a night-out look. What do you think?

 Are you interested in wearing the pleated skirt? I’m curious to know how you style it.

PS: I am traveling to Gothenburg this Thursday for a day, and I’m super excited.

 As always, Thank you so much for reading.

Talk soon..xx
