Fashion is ever evolving and ever revolving. Little wonder that what was fashionable in the 80’s and 90’s is turning out to be trendy and in vogue in our present-day fashion world. An example of this is the pleated skirt.
The ever-fashionable garment can go a long way to add sophistication and style to your closet. They come in accordion, box or knife style. Whichever you choose can never go wrong.
The accordion pleats are a form of tight pleating which allows the garment to expand its shape when moving.
Knife pleat is a type of sharply pressed pleating, especially in a skirt or kilt, in which all the folds are turned in one direction, with each pleat being three layers of fabric thick
The box on the other hand is made by double folding the fabric on either side.
Rocking the pleated skirt is quite easy as you whatever top decide to go with should pass. You can rock the skirt with a blouse or a nice tailored formal shirt/blazer for a formal look.
A blouse or a sweater, as well as a denim, can be tucked into the pleated skirt to complete the casual look.
Another way to rock the pleat is to wear a loose shirt button down over it keeping in mind that the skirt should be above the knee.
To keep it sexy and eye catchy try on a tee and a mini pleat skirt.
Don’t be afraid to dare style by trying the polka dots pleats and leather jackets.
Complete your ensemble by finding the appropriate footwear. It could be a sandal, wedge, stilettoes or even a sneaker keeping in mind that a belt can be worn over the skirt depending on the outlook you want to portray. Accessorize for that classy look
