Summer 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.
2) Wear it with a basic tank top
Show off your arms in any style of tank top from a spaghetti strap to a boyfriend tank.
3) Wear it with a striped shirt
Wear a wide or thin horizontal-striped top as a nod to the 70′s and nautical trends.
4) Wear it with a lace shirt
Or try an edgy 70′s trend by wearing it with a lace shirt.
5. Wear it with a blouse
Pull your look together by matching your blouse with a color from the print of the skirt.
6. Wear it with a cardigan
Be like Ms. Obama and go J Crew style.
I just showed you six different tops to wear with the pleated skirt, but the options are limitless. Buy a pleated skirt now and have fun experimenting with the items you already have in your closet.
