One of the most popular ways to a style a pleated skirt is with a leather jacket. This look is edgy, stylish and all around a show-stopper! We’ve chosen a graphic tee for under the jacket because it adds a touch of whimsy to the whole look. If you’re not one for a graphic tee, don’t sweat it! A subtle camisole tucked into the skirt will do the trick. The best part is that you can wear just about any shoes with this look…black booties? YES. Strappy sandals? YOU BET. Statement sneakers? HELL YES. Want to add these items to your wardrobe? Click on the links below!

Are you looking for a more preppy look? Are you hoping for some clean lines and a more tailored silhouette? Not a problem! You can still rock this skirt trend. What you’ll want to do is pick a pop of color for the skirt…this way, a subtle blazer will contrast nicely and you’ll also be able to re-purpose the skirt for a fun summer picnic.

For a cozy yet chic ensemble, we’ve put together this printed pleated skirt and black turtleneck sweater. The best part is that you can either tuck the sweater in to create a classic and waist cinched silhouette or you can leave the sweater un-tucked in order to give a more loose and casual outfit. This is a great look for winter…it’s dark, subtle and just a wee bit sultry! Just enough to keep you feeling fashionable all season all!
