Pleated Midi Skirt

1 Pleated Midi Skirt

I have a new fashion love and it’s called the pleated midi skirt! I am absolutely addicted. One of the many reasons I love them is because they are SOO versatile (and you know I love versatility!!!). You can wear it with a fitted or loose sweater, a turtleneck & ankle boots, a crop top & strappy sandals for summer, or the way I have it styled today…with a cami and moto jacket. And talk about the upcoming Holiday season! The metallic pleated midi skirt is gorgeously perfect.

Also, a good cami is definitely a must-have closet essential in any girl’s wardrobe. They’re a classic piece that never goes out of style and can be worn so many different ways. I have always loved an edgy & feminine combo and this look is just that. You take a sexy feminine piece like this black lace-trim cami and pair it with something a little more tomboy’ish like a Leather Moto Jacket. (This vegan leather jacket is old but I’ve linked some affordable ones below.) Add in the pleated midi skirt and you’ve got yourself a smokin’ hot look! To finish off this look, I threw in this super cute beaded clutch bag and a statement necklace.

    Looking because once again, Candy! You are a style queen. I love the skirt paired with the leather jacket, chic yet rock and roll, it works so well together. I don’t own anything like this but maybe I’ll have to reconsider that for next summer!

    • October 19, 2017 / 2:52 pm

      Aww, thank youo! That’s what I love about this: girlie & biker girl pairing!

    Versatility is key for me when picking out new pieces to add to my wardrobe. I love the way you showcase this skirt with and opposite of a leather jacket. It shows that the different materials can flow seamlessly together.

    • October 19, 2017 / 2:54 pm

      Anyone who knows me know versatility is key for me!

    Hands up I am loving the pleated midi skirt trend that is going on at the moment, there really are some great pieces you can pair with them as well.

    • October 19, 2017 / 2:55 pm

      Yes, this skirt is so versatile. It can be paired with practically anything!

  7. October 16, 2017 / 2:03 pm

    you look gorgeous in this outfit! I love the edgey style the biker jacket adds too. my petite size keeps me aways from midi styles but you may have just changed my mind if I can look half as good as you

    • October 19, 2017 / 2:56 pm

      Yeah, I can see how my shorter sisters would not be too comfortable in longer skirts and dresses. But a short pleated skirt would be super cute with OTK boots!

  8. October 16, 2017 / 2:49 pm

    That skirt is so cute. I need to try one on to see how it looks on me.

    I have not seen a pleated skirt in years! It looks so loose and flowing that I think I would love to wear it. I’ve never liked anything tight but I do like to dress up.
