Style Theory: There are times when you just want to feel feminine and pretty, with all the androgynous looks in fashion at the moment why not add a floaty, pleated skirt to your wardrobe to add some girliness..
These skirts have been around for a few years so you may already have one in your wardrobe here are some ideas of how to style the pleated skirt:
|Team your pleated skirt with a slouchy denim shirt|
|For a daytime look wear with trainers, slightly shorter pleated skirts look good with trainers.|
|Make your skirt Autumn appropriate by wearing it with a tonal jumper.|
|Wear your grey pleated skirt with snakeskin shoes and a white shirt for a chic look.|
|Wear a floor length pleated skirt with a slouchy shirt for a dressed up/dressed down look.|
|Leather or faux leather skirts look chic and sophisticated, wear with heels for a flattering look.|

These skirts are great for transitional dressing, they can be worn in the height of summer with bare legs, a t-shirt and a pair of pointed heels or flats and in Autumn/Winter with a fine wool sweater and a pair of knee high boots or trainers.
I have finally got my hands on a pleated skirt (after years of wanting one) This one is from Whistles, I used the 25% off from last week's Grazia to buy it. It is a great length and weight so it hangs beautifully. You cannot help but feel very feminine in it, the crystal-pink hue would look fabulous with such an array of colours..tan, turquoise, blues and black.
