How to Wear Pleated Skirts

how to wear pleated skirtsSummer is fast approaching and that means hot and humid weather, so it’s time to break out the strapless beach dresses and the high-waisted shorts. But floral sundresses and denim cutoff shorts are not your only options. Think skirts! My favorite is the pleated skirt.

The pleated skirt is a very versatile piece of clothing which can be worn with just about any thing in any setting. You can wear it under a dress as a petticoat (a separate skirt worn under a skirt or dress to add warmth and shape) or wear it with a blazer to the office. Surprisingly though, very few women own a pleated skirt. Some may find it challenging to style, but I’ll show you just how easy it is. Here are six different tops to wear with the pleated skirt:


1. Wear it with a printed tee

Turn your boyish tee into a fun and feminine look with a pleated skirt.
