All of the Ways to Wear a Pleated Skirt

All of the Ways to Wear a Pleated Skirt

Surprisingly, the best work wear investment I made was in a black pleated midi skirt.  I say surprisingly because I am not much a of a skirt wearer, I'm usually in jeans.  However, this skirt has provided me with a reliable base to plan work wear and street wear around.  I have worn it with a blouse and heels for work and changed into a tee and sneakers for exploring the city.  It has been my key transition piece for fall and spring, and always excites me season after season.

Why am I writing about this, well because I think that you need one in your closet too.  It always looks put together for work or play and its comfortable and flattering.  My mom always said that a classic silhouette is always flattering, and I definitely agree with this piece.  With skirts like this making their rounds in street style, there are so many ways to pair it.  I currently love the athletic look with sneakers.  It harmoniously combines athleticism and femininity in this strange, but captivating dance.  And although the way that it is styled may be a trend, this silhouette will never go out of style.
