Pleated skirts: trends
Pleated skirts have long since shed their classic school uniform image and are now well established on international runways. Plissé pleats, inverted pleats or fan pleats – skirts everywhere are now boasting beautiful pleats no matter what variety they may be. The most trendy length? They’re all good! From mini to midi to maxi, these airy skirts are ready to go 365 days a year.
What to wear with pleated skirts
Pleated skirts are really versatile – they can do everything from casual to ultra-chic. And they do it while ensuring top comfort. Pleated skirts in muted colours like blue or black are especially suited for the office. Your best bet would be to add an equally classic white blouse and trench coat. As a floor-length variety in attractive ice-cream colours and with high heels, the pleated skirt suddenly seems fit for the red carpet.
Exclusive fashion tip
In terms of flattering the figure, skirts with pleats are considerably more forgiving than straight cuts, because the dynamically flowing pleats can easily hide the odd problem area without causing much of a fuss. Good to know: very short pleated skirts are best left for younger women. Women closer to middle age prefer knee-skimming or ankle-length designs. The latter are particularly well suited to tall women.
