Something tells me that pleated skirts isn’t one of the most hashtagged ootds on social media right now. To be honest, I haven’t done enough research to confirm that. But I have done enough scrolling to think that skintight spandex is on the top of that list. Not to say, I don’t like a good bodycon outfit, because I certainly do! I’m simply saying that the outfit doesn’t have to be a spandex one piece to be postworthy.
Fabric with multiple folds held by stitching at the top or side, otherwise known as pleats, can make for a good look. I think my pleat love started when I was a cheerleader as a little girl. A pleated skirt was part of my uniform. It was kelly green, made of heavy knit, and I had the nerve to roll it up to make it even shorter. I’ve always loved minis too. What can I say?
The key to making pleats look cool AF is balancing it out with something that defines the waist. A simple tank, a graphic tee tied at the waist, a belt…all good waist defining pieces! Here are 4 ways to style a pleated skirt that will land you in the cool squad. 😉
