Pleated skirts have been one of the biggest fashion trends since early 2016. There are so many ways to wear a pleated skirt and look classic on it. We have knife pleats or wide ones, long skirts or short ones. You can wear it as casual or official, it works for anything.
I found this pleated skirt and black bell blouse in SHEIN Website and I love how intimidating the skirts look, the material is not cheap or light so one can wear it in early spring or winter. Pleats can be eye-catchy especially if the skirt is patterned or has a grid box design on it like the one I have on.
When pairing the skirt, you must consider the bottom color and design first. I paired the outfit with a detailed black belt, half perforated black pump shoes from ShoeDazzle, and a sophisticated graphic bag that I got as a gift from my cousin. The shoes did not come with the red Pom Poms; I added them to make my total outfit look fun.
When wearing pleat skirts, it’s always good to tuck in the top or have a half-length fitted top on. I wore the skirt above the waist, with a bold gold chain belt, and the top well tucked in.
I advise you to avoid large pleats if you are obese or have wide curves because it will make you look two times bigger than your size. Knife or tiny pleats are better for obese people. If you are skinny, both pleats will work perfectly for you, especially the large design.
The skirt sizes run small so be careful when selecting your size. Normally, I wear a U.S size small or medium but the size I have on is large and it could not zip to the end. Also, the top size I have on is medium, it’s a little bit tight on my shoulders because I have little broad shoulders. What do you think about this combo, the pleated grid box printed skirt and the bell sleeve black top?
