Ever since the stylish and oh so fabulous Carrie Bradshaw stepped onto our screens in her electric blue Manolo’s and midi length skirts, I have forever dreamed of swishing my way through my rather less fabulous life in a pleated skirt. I’ve never had a properly pleated skirt, that was until September last year. They are such a great alternative to jeans in the colder months, specially since they can be worn with tights and knee high boots. So in essence a big win!
The pleated skirt first entered my wardrobe back in September, I stumbled across this perfectly pink midi skirt in Zara and I have to say it was my favourite until Next showed up with their grey pleated version and oh my goodness I fell in love all over again. I have continued to add a leopard print number from Zara to my collection and I fear it may not stop there.
I haven’t quite managed to wear my pleated skirts with a strappy shoe or even my converse as yet. As soon as the weather allows spring to step into my life I hope to correct this and once again show another side to the new love in my life. The pleated skirt really is a versatile addition to your wardrobe. Now here’s a big statement – they have replaced my skinny jeans. Oh my goodness, its true.
I’m obsessed with cosy knits this season and pleated skirts are the perfect pairing. I feel really feminine wearing this combination and for just this reason I am happy for the colder weather to stick around a little longer. Just a little longer.
I really do love putting a little fashion post together and hope to do at least once a month. Do let me know if there is anything you would like me to share. I think my next post will be all about my first love, a ditsy floral print.
