Pleated Skirts – Styling Tips & Fashion On A Budget

Pleated Skirt

 

Pleated Skirts can be quite tricky to wear. To some, it may come off as too serious,  too mature and even professional..

I know for a fact that Pleated Skirts can be somewhat difficult to mange as well,  and taking care of the pleats especially those small pleats called the Knife pleat, can be a little tricky.

You might find it difficult ironing it for fear of messing up the pleat pattern. Truth is,  you don’t really need to but if you must,

Tip: iron using low heat.

In order not to look too serious or official,  style your pleated skirt with a plain tee or top and bold neck accessories.

For this look,  I didn’t use any neck accessories because my top has a neck cut out. This serves as the necessary edge my outfit needed.

I opted for a slim waist belt to help create that cinched in look since the skirt Is a midi length skirt.

Throw on a nice pair of heels,  not too high if you’re not a fan of heels like me. Just make sure you are comfortable or you can throw on some really cute embellished sandals too.

Pair your outfit with a fun cute purse to add a little playful vibe to the look.  I went with my black clutch to go with my top and shoes.

For this look, the skirt is the key element.  The pop of color to balance out all the black.
