Styling Pleats & Knitwear

Pleated skirts - A new addition to my wardrobe moving into winter ’16. It’s one of those trends that has come back around in no time, and there are a few different lengths around. Today’s black pleather number is just above the knee, and I’ve styled it casually with a trusty pair of Nikes and pulled back hair. There are so many ways to style pleats, so I’ve listed a few ways how you can introduce this style into your wardrobe.

  • Add knitwear. There are so many styles that work well. Oversized long knits are great with a midi length skirt with the turtle neck working better with shorter hemlines.
  • Sneakers for a street feel or high heeled ankle boots for a chic look. I’ve opted for a clean pair of white kicks, as wanted to look more casual whilst pairing back with a blazer. This way, the outfit looks well balanced and not too casual or too dressy.
  • Toughen up with a leather jacket. I really like this take on styling and feel it works well with floaty pleats as opposed to the metallic stiffer versions. Contrasting is key.
  • Finish off with a statement bag. It takes this look to the next level, especially if keeping the colour to a minimum. Today, I have opted for a Celine Trio which is perfect for everyday. 
So have fun and play around with this seasons skirt, the perfect style for any occasion.
