Pleats may remind you of your schoolgirl days, but they’re still on the runway this season, as shown by Bottega Veneta. Even if you don’t own one anymore, you can probably find one at a thrift store since they’ve been back in style for several seasons. Try wearing it with a fuzzy sweater or, if that seems too bookish, with a satin blouse.
I would prefer to wear my pleated skirt with a cropped sweater, but that will have to be a future thrift store find. Instead, I put on a cropped lace top by Moda International given to me by my fashionista friend. The outfit is a little dark for my taste, but it’s still romantic.
Do you have a pleated skirt in your closet? How can you style it this fall?
