Living close to the beach, I don’t see fashion around town as much as I see everyday tank tops, tees, shorts, and flip flops. Occasionally, though, a bright spot appears in the form of someone wearing the latest trends or expressing a creative style that I could envision on the runway or in a fashion magazine.
A few weeks ago, I spotted a woman whose street style included a black pleated skirt. I was so excited to see this trend in my town that I don’t even remember what she wore with it. It might have been a light pink sweater set, or maybe it was a long sleeve white silky blouse. Either way, the outfit looked professional but also sweet.
Before pleated skirts showed up in recent fashion magazines, I always saw them at thrift stores. Now, of course, I haven’t been able to find any. If you’re in the same dilemma, here’s an alternative low-cost option. Try it with a bolero sweater or a blouse!
Have you worn a pleated skirt this season? What did you, or would you, wear it with?
