This is definitely is the first time I’ve mentioned accordion pleats here on amillionbucks, and based on their timeless appeal, it probably won’t be the last! This skirt style experienced a revival this fall. Both mini and midi skirts featuring these tiny, ladylike folds are back in the limelight and are looking better than ever, thanks to a slew of current colours and pretty floral prints.
Pleats have moved far beyond the realm of schoolgirl uniforms, if you’ve had a chance to visit my favourite store Zara or any other high street brand such as Mango or H&M, they are all sporting variety of these skirts. Not only do these pieces add that much needed feminine touch, there’s a pleat to please everyone, ranging from precise knife pleats for a preppy vibe to petite folds for those with more ladylike sensibilities. I paired it with matching heels and a black top tucked in with a beautiful statement necklace for an evening look. Keep your make up light with a bright pout and you’re done. You can wear yours with sneakers or boots. It’s also the perfect travel companion as it tends not to crease!
Once you find the pleated skirt that is best for you – whether it’s tiny pleats or larger ones, a midi length or a more mini length, a bright color or something more classic – you can do a lot with it that will make you look amazing and extremely cool and fashion forward.
