Trending Tuesday | Pleated Skirts

My favorite dressy piece for spring has to be the pleated skirt. There is just something about the flow you get while walking that makes you feel like a lady - whether you go for the midi length or a shorter option, the pleat is in!

Not sure if anyone had to wear uniforms while in school, but there was a week or so in middle school when we had to wear these types of skirts and I absolutely loathed it! Looking back it was definitely the material not the actual style!! Funny how fashion comes full circle.

Midi and Work Appropriate

  2. Love pleated skirts! I am going to order this cream colored Lauren Conrad(kohls collection) skirt this week! http://www.kohls.com/product/prd-1693696/lc-lauren-conrad-chiffon-pleated-maxi-skirt-womens.jsp?prodId=1693696 I am obsessed with it. I wanted an all cream maxi dress but I figured with the kids the skirt would be a safer bet lol! XO

  5. I absolutely love the look of these but I haven't been able to find one that doesn't make my hips look 10 times wider than they actually are! However that long blush one looks amazing and may not do that! How amazing would like a hot pink Summer color look in this trend? :-)

  10. I like the chiffon ones, especially those pictures of the coral/red ones!! Very pretty. We got a navy wide pleated skirt at work that has this like lacy texture, it's so cute, but if I buy any more clothes there my husband may get mad haha. I went to catholic school through college so I've done the uniform thing!! To this day I refuse to wear plaid because of it, haha.

  15. I love this trend! I'm definitely more of a midi/maxi pleated skirt gal because I can't pull off flowy skirts that are above the knee - they make my legs look like sausages! I love the combination of chiffon pleated skirts with a button down chambray shirt.

  20. Oh how I love a pleated shirt - and yes I totally wore uniforms everyday for middle and high school.... I think you hit the nail on the head with the fabric...we referred to our skirts as kilts - they were a not so fantastic cranberry and navy wool....hahah yay for catholic school!!

  25. I have a hard time with these because at times they can make my hips appear larger so I guess it depends on the cut.

  27. I am loving the skirts that I can wear a simple Tshirt with!!

  28. I love this look but somehow it totally swallows me! I love the midi length but I am way to short for that. Such a cute look with a plain Tshirt and a statement necklace.

  35. I'm so sad I don't have a pleated skirt, because I'm obsessed! Adding this to my want list. Just one more thing I "need!" haha.

  36. I am loving the pleated skirts! I like the mid length and I've also seen some full length maxis that are to die for! Your right, it's crazy how style makes a circle over and over and over! That's my excuse as to why I never want to get rid of clothes! Haha!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I always feel like the pleated skirt looks so cute, but then I put it on and it just never fits me right :(

  38. I feel like the midi skirts are the kind of thing that I LOVE and want to wear but know that I shouldn't because my legs are so short to begin with and I'm not quite as skinny as the gorgeous models in those photos! I do love some of the patterned ones-- the first one from Banana is my favorite I think!

  39. I love the longer ones! I can totally work those.
